Ultra-thin Oppo R7 will be officially announced next month

Ultra-thin Oppo R7 will be officially announced next month
Oppo today confirmed that its rumored R7 smartphone will be officially unveiled next month, in May, although it's not clear if the announcement date is May 20 (as previously reported).

It seems that the R7 is the successor to last year's Oppo R5, despite the fact that an R6 doesn't exist. It's said that the R7 will be thinner than the R5, which is a former record-breaking handset thanks to its ultra-slim 4.85mm profile.

The Oppo R7 could feature a 4.7-inch 1080p display, fingerprint scanner, a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6795 processor, a 20.7 MP rear camera, and a 2000 mAh battery. An Oppo R7 Plus (with a larger battery) might also be introduced at the same time with the regular R7.

Since the R5 is available to buy from Oppo's global website, we assume the R7 will be launched internationally, too. An unlocked R5 currently costs $499, so the R7 might have a similar price. We'll let you know more about the new handset as soon as it's announced. Until then, check out some images that allegedly show the Oppo R7 (but keep in mind that the real device might look different):

Its definable a good looking phone, but hopefully that processor holds up

So which phone is that in image 7 & 5, because those are definitely two different phones?

Wont even considet buying a phone this thin. Id rather have a phone that can last a day and a hald with moderate usage. Not a phone that can lsst a day with minimal usage.

2000 mAh should give you plenty, I believe.

Thin phones are hard to hold.

Looks great but what am I supposed to do with a 2000 mAh battery phone??? Become a wall hugger? I prefer hugging my girlfriend!
