Oppo R7 available to pre-order in the US, free headphones included
Last month, when Oppo announced the R7 and R7 Plus, it started selling them only in China. Now, the R7 is available to pre-order internationally, including in the US, where it will start shipping in early July.

Oppo is asking $399 for an unlocked R7 (free shipping included), letting you choose between the handset's silver and golden versions. For a limited time, Oppo is giving a pair of iLike Speed Metal headsets for free to all those who are pre-ordering the R7. However, there are two things to note about the smartphone: although it's officially sold by Oppo, it comes with a European charging plug (so you'll need an adapter to charge it in the US), and it doesn't support US LTE bands (but it does work on the 3G networks of AT&T and T-Mobile).

If you're willing to ignore the two inconveniences mentioned above, the Oppo R7 seems to be an interesting handset to own. The phone has a 6.3mm-thin metal body, while sporting a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, and running Color OS (based on Android KitKat). Powered by an octa-core, 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor, the R7 further features a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2320 mAh battery.

The Oppo R7 Plus (which has a 6-inch 1080p display and a 4100 mAh battery) is not yet available to pre-order internationally.

Nice phone. I think Apple should sue Oppo for copying Huawei's Mate 7 fingerprint scanner!!

May not work on US LTE but it will with two of Canada's bigger carriers - Bell and Rogers (but not Telus) because they have Band 7 (2600) which most Chinese phones offer.
