Despite all the rumors, Oppo went out and released official renders of the R7, where the bezelless display wasn’t observed. As it turns out, the edge-to-edge display was reserved for the larger brother, the Oppo R7 Plus, set to be announced alongside the R7 on May 20.
The R7 Plus showed up on a few occasions, with the latest being a Chinese commercial and its existence was also officially confirmed by a press release from Oppo. The device is larger, with a fingerprint sensor on the back and does away with the capacitive buttons in the bottom bezel. It also comes with a metal unibody and 2.5D front glass.
There isn’t any informations about the specifications, however if the benchmark on the GFXBench website is to be trusted, the smartphone packs a 5.9-inch FullHD display. The Oppo R7 Plus will allegedly be powered by a Mediatek MT6795M chipset with an octacore CPU, clocked at 1.9GHz.RAM is likely 3GB and internal storage is 32GB of which 6GB are reserved for system use.
We will have to wait until May 20th to find out a little bit more about this new Oppo smartphone.
