Spotted at TENAA: the Oppo R7s Plus comes with a 6" 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, and a 4,100mAh battery
Oppo's already gearing up to release its latest device, the R7s, in the US and Europe, toting a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 615 chipset, and 4GB RAM to the table. We can easily classify the phone as mid-range or upper mid-range at best, but if the latest hearsay is to be believed, Oppo could be prepping a beefed-up variation of the handset.

A 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front one are also part of the specs sheet, which is similar to the R7s. We have a fingerprint reader at the back, too. A welcome improvement is the inclusion of a larger, 4,100mAh battery at the rear. It will most likely feature Oppo's VOOC fast-charging tech on board as well.
There is no word on the official announcement of the phone, but the rumor mill claims it will be priced at about 3299 yuans, or roughly $517. Anyone interested?
