Oppo R7s phablet unveiled featuring 5.5-inch screen, 4GB of RAM and VOOC charging
 The Oppo R7s phablet has just been unveiled in Dubai, and the device will be launched next month in 10 regions and countries including Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Australia, and Indonesia. Some countries in the Middle East and North Africa region will also be getting the phone next month. In December, U.S. and European consumers will be able to purchase the model from the OppoStyle website.

The Oppo R7s features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display using 2.5D glass. The Snapdragon 615 SoC under the hood brings an octa-core CPU, and the Adreno 405 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of internal storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot in on board for those seeking additional memory.

The 13MP rear-facing camera comes with Phase Detection Auto Focus, which takes all of .1 second to focus. There is an 8MP front-facing camera to shoot selfies and handle video chats. The camera app now opens 30% faster when compared to earlier models. A 3070mAh battery keeps the phone running for 13 hours and 15 minutes continuously, according to Oppo. And the VOOC rapid charger will give the handset enough juice to talk for 2 hours after being plugged in for just 5 minutes. You can charge your battery all the way to 90% after just a 50 minute workout with an electrical outlet. Android 5.1 is pre-installed with ColorOS 2.1 running on top.

There is no word yet on pricing for this enticing new Oppo phablet. We expect that figure to be released as the phone is launched in each market.


Thanks for the tip!

Throwing in more RAM is an idiotic gimmick when the SD615 doesn't deserve that much.

More Ram has never and will never be gimmick to any device... It's all about "fluidity enhancements and multi-task"... Yes the Soc is not top notch but if the pricing varies between 200-250$.. This phablet is going to be worthy midrange

Since it is a Oppo phone, the pricing will be around $300-350. And with sd 615, I doubt the value for money factor. The build quality looks as excellent as always for Oppo phones.

Is more RAM wasted RAM tho? The folks from android central believe so.

not much ram issue but SD 615 is way old.. they should put there something new.. I have MediaTek MT6752 64-bit Octa Core 1.7 which is way faster and better

BS. More powerful snapdragon 808 and 810 are pathetic processors that lead to smartphones with them inside to have very little battery life and overheating problems, which force manufacturers to underclocked them by 50%.

The 615 is probably the best processor that Qualcomm has at the moment because of these issues. Newer 616 to 620 are too new to be in any devices.

bro 808 is awesome , 810 is the one that has many issues .
However S801 , 805 are still fine chips that i hope more manufacturers would use

Seriously S615 is what holding this device back . It will be a beast if it runs S801,805,808

Seeing phones released with 615, knowing that there is 616 and 617 are out.

And Snapdragon 620. The Galaxy A9 is rumored to use that CPU.

Yep and also 618 and 620 which are much faster CPU/GPU wise.

Snapdragon 808 or 810 with 3 GB of RAM would be way better than the 615 with 4GB

Really too bad for the 615 and pricing will be probably high as it's usual for OPPO

I've wondered why snapdragon doen't have a 500 and 700 series.

Yea I agree with you, the lowest end should be 615 and than a 700 for mid range with a good gpu than the high 800. They really need to step it up in 2016.

Hope it's an 1080p screen and priced decently with unlockable bootloader. Design looks a lot like the Hewuei iPhone ripp off. LOL.

Snapdragon ruined Android this year. The 615's gpu isn't that great, 810.. Well we know the story.

The 808 is probably too expensive for mid range devices.

Snapdragon need a 700 series chip.

yeaa .. m4 aqua cant play san andreas with high graphic settings while e4g with mtk Soc can play san andreas with high settings
snapdragon really ruined android this year

810 .. i think its good depends on how the OEMs handle the "hotness" of 810

Xiaomi has a phone called MI4c which is running a 808 chip and overall has a decent specification ( lack of NFC and expendable storage are 2 major exceptions). The price is around 200-250 dollars. Value for money. Just goes onto show how much less can be charged for decent phones.

So this is between R7 and R7 Plus? Nevertheless, a good phone from Oppo.
