Most importantly, this Chinese brand is apparently preparing to launch a really cool device with a border-less screen which rivals the Galaxy S6, and does so at half the cost. We're talking about the Oppo R7 - the legitimate successor to the Oppo R5.
For months rumors have been swirling about the Oppo R7. Today, though, the handset has been leaked in a leaked video that allegedly confirms the much-awaited phone. The video, on Mobile-Dad, shows off the Oppo R7 with a near bezel-free edging and super slim form factor.
Yes the Oppo R7 will be significantly different from its predecessor: the R5. It's believed that Oppo has opted for curved glass on the edges of the device which is able to refract light on the sides to give the effect of masking the bezels, notes Pocket-lint.
