OPPO R7s announced: 4GB RAM, 32GB of ROM, octa-core processor

The OPPO R7s has been announced at GITEX 2015 in Dubai, bringing the long-rumored smartphone to the market. The R7s features the same magnesium-aluminum alloy metal unibody design as the R7 series along with a 5.5-inch, AMOLED 2.5D display (resolution unknown) with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 (the latest in display panel tech), an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM with a 128GB microSD card slot for expandable storage, an 8MP front camera with OPPO’s Screen Flash, 13MP back camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), 0.1-second fast focus, and stable imaging, a 3,070mAh battery that features VOOC Flash Charge fast charging that lets you charge 90% of the battery in just 50 minutes.

The OPPO R7s also comes with dual-SIM slots, allowing you to use the carrier services you choose to use when you need them. OPPO says that its own battery tests show that the OPPO R7s lasted for 13 hours and 15 minutes; moderate and light usage will stretch the battery to more than a day, easily.

As for the the pre-installed Android update out of the box, you’re looking at Android 5.1 Lollipop with OPPOs ColorOS 2.1 overlay installed. ColorOS 2.1 has improvements in booting and battery life which should help you extend the 3,070mAh battery beyond 24 hours. There is no word on price yet, but OPPO says that it will offer the device in November to Singapore, Australia, Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and MENA regions. European and American buyers will get their chance to purchase the device in December.

All in all, the OPPO R7s looks to make as much of an impression as the R7 series has on consumers. What do you think?

    Dear oppo, you can keep your extra ram and I’ll gladly keep 450-500$ you will require for this, buying something with better soc at lower price instead.
    Sincerely, someone who will most likely never buy your overpriced midrangers.

    I guess OPPO thinks there are a lot of dummies who will buy their smartphones.

      They don’t think that, they know there are a lot of people who will buy their phones. I wouldn’t buy it because of the choice of SoC, not so much because of the price.

    Bad SoC, and I’d they keep their prices sky high I can’t understand their objective.. But otherwise interesting smartphone

    Nice features, especially the back cover made with Maalox®.

    Not surprised by the comments. Even if it had a high-end SoC then everyone would still be bitching about the price. Notice how only the low bottom-of-the-barrel Chinese brands advertise on this site?

      how did you get to the conclusion that if it had a high end SoC then everyone would still be bitching about the price?

      i have read all the comments and there’s none of them that would make believe so.

        u agree with AMR ?

        • MaxPower
          October 19, 2015

          no, I’ve seen complaining more about the SoC.
          there’s a lot o people saying that if it had a different SoC than it would have been better.

            hahaha … well to be fair , Oppo are the Elite Class’ company. people with hard-earned and somewhat limited income (even if they are well-off but avoid extravagancy) along with students can’t actually be too realistic when looking at any Oppo Catalogue anywhere…

            i hav heard good and bad things about them (surprisingly a few from @balcobomber25 , who bashed them in one post and then praised them in the other :p ) but it remains to be seen what they are REALLY made of…

            havent seen a oppo review around here … have we ? or is it JUST me ?

              they make premium devices, often with a original design and they target a specific audience.

              at launch prices are not competitive for us that buy from resellers.
              that’s a fact, not an opinion.

              i can see a market in China, but abroad is a different story:
              if you add 80$ due to reseller, 20$ for shipping and then the risk of paying custom duties(5-10%) and VAT(20-23%) then you can see that their midrange might cost more than a Galaxy S6 edge.

              so nobody should be surprised if people says that Oppo is overpriced.
              it actually is for the reasons i said above.
              different story in China, it’s a premium brand still cheaper than Samsung or HTC…

              plus let’s not forget about numbers:
              Oppo has a market share of 3-4% in China, pretty little numbers don’t you think?

              October 19, 2015

              3-4% in a billion strong china ? not bad…
              but how much do the leaders hold ? Xiaomi , Meizu … to be precise…

              lol … oppo lost ground … small gain for lenovo … a sizeable gain for Huawei (wow ! arent they also somewhat expensive?!)

              but Xiaomi ?! lost ground as well ?!

              something aint right…

              huawei probably has the biggest variety out there, plus consider that they have been there since forever.

              The sales of Redmi note 2 and MI4c are not there yet so I’m expecting a bigger number in Q4 for Xiaomi.

              Oppo is the Chinese Samsung, they have also been there since forever and they have they loyal customers.

              I wish i could find a different source to see how LeTV is doing

    SD 615 again, this companies must be really smoking something hard. What happened to SD 808 or 801

    A NO for me.

  7. yalok
    October 19, 2015

    Probably, they couldn’t get enough SD808 (or was it just a stupid management decision ?) and SD801 sounds in marketing language something like “32bit quad core, 2 year old”, so they chose SD615 — “The new octa core 64 bit SoC”.
    Wouldn’t buy their overpriced stuff anyway.

    Free SD615 for everyone

    Now here is a company that has a great design team..Their products have always a targeted a specific niche who simply want a good high end device.

    Now if only they had a Helio x20 in there…
