After touting about the proprietary glass technology Oppo has been researching about, the company has finally announced a device that makes use of this technology. It has been officially stated that the Oppo R7 Plus will be sporting the company’s new glass technology, which provides an illusion of a bezel-less edge to edge display.
This technology has been in the news for some time and we expected it to be featured in the Oppo R7, but we were disappointed to see that the device had no characteristic of being edge-to-edge. However, it turns out Oppo has been reserving the privilege for its big boy, the Oppo R7 Plus.
The Oppo R7 Plus has been making rounds in the Chinese commercials for some time now and it really does seem to be bezel-less from all the renders displayed in the commercial. The Oppo R7 Plus will be featuring a unibody construction along with a 2.5D glass covering the front entirely to gift a smooth curved glass effect which feels great for edge tot edge swipes.
There has been no word about the specifications of the device, but the device seems to be listed on the GFXBench. The GFXBench suggests that the Oppo R7 Plus will be equipped with a 5.9 inch Full HD display which still keeps the device well under the retina grade territory, but wears thin when compared to the other QHD displays in the market. At the heart of the device will be a 64-bit octa core Mediatek MT6795M SoC, which has a clock speed of 1.9 GHz. It is also expected to carry 3 GB of RAM and at least 32 GB of on-board storage with the ability to expand it later through the provided MicroSD slot.
The rear camera on the Oppo R7 Plus has been rumored to be a dual 7 MP unit but the renders speak otherwise. Since the images do not depict any kind of dual camera set up, we think it is safe to assume that the Oppo R7 Plus will be also fitted with a 20.7 MP sensor. The front camera is 5 MP and should be excellent for selfies and video conferencing.
The specifications list is only a speculation at this point of time and the actual capability of the Oppo R7 Plus will be clear on 20th of May, when the device is expected to be announced officially.
