OPPO F7 Now Officially Launched and Priced in India

The much anticipated upcoming OPPO smartphone has just been made official in the Indian market, and as the teasers and leaks had been referring to, it is formally called the OPPO F7. Comparing this phone to its predecessor - the F5 - it seems there are even more upgrades we see in here that we actually expected. And like may other newly released flagship and midrange smartphones, this F7 also wields a notch on its upper screen.

The OPPO F7 sports a 6.23-inch screen with Full HD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio which OPPO calls a Super Full Screen 2.0. This front panel configurations and its extremely thin bezels allowed the phone to achieve an 89.09% screen to body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience.

The 25MP front facing camera has a more improved AI Beauty 2.0 app that can scan up to 296 facial points for a much enhanced and precise selfie capturing experience. OPPO said it is 20% better than its predecessor found in the F5 series. Also, through the help of this new AI Beauty, it can learn user's editing preferences when it comes to their selfies and apply them in the future photos, that's on top of the app to recognize one's skin tone, gender, age, etc and improve them in the process.

As for the rear camera, its 16MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture is equipped with AI Screen Recognition feature. This allows the camera to detect what type of scene is being capture such as grass, indoor, beach, food, sunset and more, and provide the best possible settings to improve the scene and color reproduction.

Embedded at the heart of the OPPO F7 is the newly released Mediatek Helio P60 processor which focuses more on the AI side of things, thanks to its dedicated AI hardware built into it - a first in a Mediatek chip. Alongside this SoC is a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The storage is expandable and thankfully, there is still a dedicated microSD card slot to do it besides dual-SIM slot.
