The Oppo R7 Plus smartphone went up for pre-order back in September in the US and Europe. That original version of the R7 Plus was a decent enough smartphone and if you want to know more about it, check out our review of the R7 Plus from the launch. Oppo has now launched an updated version of the R7 Plus with improved specs.
Oppo, the Chinese smartphone maker, has long used its own custom version of Android, known as ColorOS, on its devices, but when these phones are made available outside its domestic market, it becomes clear that many of its customizations are meant to appeal to Chinese users. So, in order to broaden its appeal outside of China, Oppo is making its OS much closer to the stock version of Android, in turn eliminating features and apps that could be considered "bloatware" for international users.
Android device manufacturer Oppo has just debuted its latest smartphone today, the Neo 7. As the successor to the Neo 5 and Neo 5s, which were released earlier this year, the Neo 7 continues the line's intentions of being an entry-level Android device. Sorry, Android flagship fans, you won't find much interesting for you here. Everyone else, however, has a new option when it comes to an affordable 5-inch Android-powered phone.
It feels only like yesterday that smartphones began sporting 3 GB of RAM but now we're walking on 4 GB. Heck, even mid-range devices are seemingly boasting that same spacious number as well. Or at least that is what OPPO is offering with its latest smartphone, the OPPO R7s. Although it should sit somewhere between the OPPO R7 and its larger OPPO R7 Plus sibling, the OPPO R7s has one trump card that makes it more appetizing: 4 GB of RAM to go along with mid-range specs.
Back in May Oppo went official with the R7 and R7 Plus smartphones packing a 5-inch and 6-inch screen respectively. Oppo thinks that there is a market for a device that splits that screen size gap neatly down the middle. A new Oppo device has hit TENAA for certifications dubbed the R7s and it packs a 5.5-inch screen.
Even as OPPO gains market share in China and South East Asia, it has a more ambitious target, the U.S.: probably one of the most challenging for any device manufacturer. Competition is fierce, against established and considerably larger brands including Samsung, Apple, and LG. OPPO knows that developing a good product is a must, and the R7 Plus reflects that intent – but is it good enough? Join us as we take a deeper look at the R7 Plus in our full review.
OPPO unveiled the R7 and its larger R7 Plus sibling last May and only recently announced the availability of the R7 Plus in international markets. Given how big a splash it has been making with its R7 line, it's somewhat surprising that it suddenly went silent on an R7 Lite. But perhaps the reason for that is that the R7 Lite is a rather confusing variant when compared to the main R7. It's still the same size with lower specs but strangely a more recent Android 5.1 running on top.
Chinese manufacturer Oppo has just unveiled its latest mid-size device, the R5s, an update of last year's R5. The new version features the same impressive design and minimal thickness, but with an increase in memory from 2GB to 3GB of RAM. The R5s has been announced for Europe so far, with orders now being accepted on Oppo's website.
When you name a device as your flagship, you better well be prepared to really spread it around. That goes double if you're a Chinese OEM intent on becoming a force to reckon with in the International market. That is exactly what OPPO is doing now as it launched its giant OPPO R7 Plus phablet upon the international market, particularly in Southeast Asia. Bearing 6 inches of metal and a fast-charging battery, the R7 Plus is poised to stand tall in the mid-range Android smartphone market.
Smartphone brand OPPO announces their intent to move into the North American market with selfie-based intentions. When you have a phone with its own swivel camera made specifically for "selfie" photos, people might assume that you've gone "all in" on the selfie trend. They would be wrong. The smartphone brand OPPO have amped up their efforts with their own branded Selfie Stick, complete with wired functionality. They'll be bringing it to the United States with a Selfie Party in Los Angeles soon.
