Teaser confirms metal unibody design for the Oppo R7
A new teaser posted Tuesday on Oppo's Weibo page confirms that the Oppo R7 will come with a metal unibody design . At one time, there was talk that the Oppo R7 would be thinner than the 4.85mm Oppo R5 and 4.75mm Vivo X5 Max. The latter currently holds the title of "World's thinnest smartphone." However, yesterday's TENAA cerification revealed that the R7 would be 6.3mm thin. That is still a rather thin design, but not a record breaker.
The latest word on the matter that we have, is that the Oppo R7 and a premium Oppo R7 Plus will both be unveiled on May 20th. Yesterday's TENAA certification would certainly dovetail with the idea that the phone will soon be unwrapped in China. Another feature of the device that many are waiting to see whether the display is actually bezel-less, or if it has a razor thin border around the 2.5D glass.
We should point out that the image of the Oppo R7 used on the new teaser does resemble the pictures of the phone released by TENAA, including the protruding square housing used on the rear camera.
Thanks for the tip!
