Glove-friendly OPPO Neo might launch alongside the Find 7


While we wait in anticipation for the next big thing from OPPO (read: OPPO Find 7), another smartphone from the OPPO camp just made its way into teasers, a 4.5″ one this time.

The device, OPPO Neo, might get a launch alongside the next-in-line flagship, the OPPO Find 7. While the Find 7 will be a true phablet with a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel display, the OPPO Neo is going to be a much smaller phone with just a 4.5-inch screen. The device is teased with a ‘Glove Mode’, which makes us believe that much like the latest crop of Chinese phones, the OPPO Neo too would be operable with gloves on.

This piece was leaked by OPPO on their Indonesia Fan Page. Unfortunately there’s no news on a release date or even pricing yet. However, considering the screen size of 4.5 inches, we would like to believe that the OPPO Neo would be an affordable one.

      The phone will go on sale for 2.6 million IDR in Indonesia (or about 215 USD). Still pretty steep considering the specs, and the fact that other phone makers are releasing Quad-Core 720p phones for much cheaper than that.

      While OPPO produces great phones (with amazing built quality), they have not matched Apple or Samsung yet in brand recognition, and I think it’s disappointed that they think they can get away charging Samsung or Apple prices for their phones.
