First design-centric promo video for the new Oppo R7 is here, 2.5D glass and metal aplenty

After spilling the beans about its newest handsets (the Oppo R7 and the R7 Max) a few days ago, Oppo today officially announced the specs and the features of its newest devices. The Oppo R7, similar to the Oppo R5, is another pretty thin handset that employs metal design and, as per Oppo itself, packs a hefty amount of "style in a flash".

With both new Android devices official, it is no wonder that their maker wants to highlight their main selling point - the design. Not that these new additions to the device-rich Android scene are underpowered, no; they're packing specs that are nothing spectacular to write home about, yet will most probably get the job done for most people out there.

In fact, the main selling point of these handsets is their design and build. Oppo is perfectly aware of that and decided to stress on this in the first promo video for the Oppo R7 in particular. Inside the promo video, we get to see transforming metal and 2.5D glass aplenty, with as much of the exterior design as it gets. Check it out below.

R7 sounds like a bike's name. :) Nice design but Oppo's phone's are costlier and they have to compete with the likes of Xiaomi and Meizu if specs and quality are compared.

Yeah it so weird and most weird is their logo design .. So ugly on R7 plus at bottom of phone.. But I disagree meizu and xiaomi is even worse quality .. believe me..

Meizu's quality also looks good though I don't know as I've not seen or used but I find Xiaomi's quality good enough as I handled many phones from Redmi 1s to Mi4i.
