Chinese brand Oppo has announced a new smartphone, the latest to come with a nice design, low specs, and a low price tag. The handset in question is called the Neo 7 and it is a device that is unlikely to appeal to those who want at least some exciting hardware.The design on the other hand is respectable and Oppo certainly knows how to craft a good looking device, even at the lower ends of the market. Admittedly that is entirely a subjective matter, but still, we are digging the look of the Neo 7. Back to the specs, they are unlikely to leap at you from the screen. The Oppo Neo 7 comes with a 5-inch screen that comes with a poor 540 x 960 resolution when most devices these days in this vein get at least 720p. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, the 64-bit chip that we rather enjoy for all its humble performance. 1GB of RAM backs up the chipset, while there is also a 8 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front facing lens, and a 2420mAh battery. The handset will be launching internationally and Oppo even says a variant will be rolled out in the United States. No price has been revealed, but this will have to be entry level to find any kind of audience we feel... we like the looks, not the specs.
