Oppo has announced its two new mid-range smartphones, the Oppo R7 and Oppo R7 Plus, the former a middle market device and the latter a bona fide flagship contender. As we have come to expect from Oppo, the devices are both very well spec'd for their price points and come with slick premium designs that are sure to appeal to many customers.In fact, the designs here are striking, with metal unibody construction, contoured edges, and in the case of the R7 Plus there is a near screen to bezel design. Both devices sport Qualcomm's 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipsets, and both are supplemented with 3GB of RAM. The pair have 1080p Full HD screens (5-inch for the R7 and 6-inch for the R7 Plus), 13 megapixel F2.2 rear snappers, and 8 megapixel selfie lenses on the front. The Plus also gets some extra goodies, such as a fingerprint scanner, and a beastly 4,100 mAh battery compared to a 2,320 mAh juicer on the R7. The two smartphones are already available for pre-order now, with the R7 costing the same as $400 and the Oppo R7 Plus costing the equivalent of $480. Not bad prices at all considering what's on offer, but the devices are already sold out and we would not expect them to launch in Europe or the United States.
