Metal-made Oppo R7 Plus launching soon in the US and Europe
Back in June, Oppo released its R7 smartphone in the US, asking $399 for it (unlocked). Now, Oppo is getting ready to launch a larger version of the R7, aptly called R7 Plus. Both the R7 and R7 Plus have been available since May in China, but the latter is only now coming to the US and Europe.

While the R7 sports a 5-inch 1080p display, the R7 Plus is made for users who need extra-large smartphones, as it's offering a 6-inch display (with the same 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution).

Just like the R7, the Oppo R7 Plus is made out of metal (a magnesium-aluminum alloy, to be precise), and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snadpragon 615 processor. The handset also comes with an 8 MP front-facing camera, a 13 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, a 4100 mAh battery, and Color OS (based on Android Lollipop). Unfortunately, the R7 Plus doesn't support US LTE bands, but it's got HSPA+ (compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile).

At the moment, there's no word on how much the Oppo R7 Plus will cost in the US and Europe. However, the handset might be sold for around $470 unlocked, since that's how much it costs in China. Any takers?
