Oppo R1001 seen at the FCC – an entry-level smartphone with MediaTek SoC inside
We came across a new Oppo smartphone while browsing through the FCC's records this morning. The phone in question is labeled as the Oppo R1001, and since the company has an R-series already, we're assuming that this will be the phone's actual name once it is announced. (If it gets announced, that is.) 

What's interesting is that the FCC papers reveal quite a lot of detailed information about the new Oppo R1001 even though it hasn't been announced yet. We're dealing with an entry-level smartphone powered by a MediaTek MT6572A SoC, which has a dual-core Cortex-A7 CPU that can be clocked at up to 1.2GHz. An ARM Mali 400-MP GPU is also featured on the chip. Furthermore, the FCC documents indicate that the phone sports a 1700mAh battery. Although it is not being mentioned anywhere, we're finding it safe to assume that the Oppo R1001 runs Android.

This sums it up for now. If the Oppo R1001 ever gets released commercially, it will probably be marketed as an alternative to the lower-cost offerings by better-known brands.

At least it looks better than most low-ends.

Pretty basic low-end phone. It's Oppo, so built quality should be better than average.

Too bad we cant get a beast like the Find 7, but I guess they have to make their international start somewhere.
