Oppo R7 seemingly coming soon - another ultra-thin smartphone?

China's Oppo is readying a new smartphone called R7, which might be introduced later this year as the successor to 2014's R5 (pictured above).

The R7 was recently approved by telecom authorities in Indonesia (as the Oppo R7f), thus we know that the handset features LTE connectivity. Moreover, according to GizmoChina, the R7 could be among the first smartphones to be powered by one of MediaTek's latest processors: the 64-bit MT6795, which comes with eight cores clocked at up to 2.2 GHz, and support for 2K displays (up to 2560 x 1600 pixels). Another feature that the R7 may offer is a 20.7 MP rear camera.

Since the Oppo R5 is an ultra-thin smartphone (only 4.85 mm), the R7 might also be a skinny device. Hopefully, Oppo won't sacrifice too many features just for the sake of thinness (the R5 doesn't have a standard 3.5mm audio jack, and, as our review of it concludes, its battery life is poor).

Since Oppo is selling quite many of its handsets (including the R5) globally, we expect to see the R7 being released internationally as well.

Maybe the day a stiff breeze will cause the phones to fly away, maybe then the creators will say, "HEY! maybe they do not need to be this thin!"
