Oppo, the Chinese mobile phone maker is gearing up to launch its 2018 flagship smartphone the Oppo F7. The new phone is expected to be officially unveiled on March 26. The company is currently running a campaign where they are asking the public to identify the cricketers in the pictures they are putting out.
The promotional image posted on Twitter by Oppo India showcases the design and also teases the brand's new local ambassador - likely to be cricketer Hardik Pandya.
The highlight of the Oppo F7 will be undoubtedly the front camera for selfies. The other is that the phone will look quite similar to the Apple iPhone X, at least in so far as the notch on top of the display screen is concerned.
The display itself is expected to be six inches in size and a bezel-free full screen one, with full HD+ 2160x1080pixels resolution display and 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
An octa-core MediaTek processor is expected to be the CPU and there may be two RAM variants - 4GB and 6GB and the internal storage is expected to be 64GB on both. Unlike the iPhone X there may not be high end 3D sensors for facial recognition, but a simple 2D outfit.
As mentioned, the front camera will be 25MP in size and will have the support of an artificial intelligence based camera app and features like real-time Augmented Reality (AR)-face sticker option, HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Beautification modes to make the selfie clicking and uploading experience quite immersive. These are similar to features that Oppo launched in its previous flagship as well.
The pricing for the Indian market may only be known only on March 26; the predicted price range is between Rs 18,000 and Rs 30,000.
