Just a month ago, the Oppo A7 started appearing in rumours and leaks, but now the real thing is here. The phone was introduced in many markets with a promo page, but only the price and availability in China is known at the moment. Before it gets to your country, let me reveal to you the Oppo A7 full specification and features. You also get to see the price in China and Nepal.
Oppo A7 Features
The Oppo A7 has a Snapdragon 450 chipset, water drop notch, and a massive 4230mAh battery. This is just a teaser, because the most impressive feature s the HyperBoost for smooth gaming. This makes the Oppo A7 the first midranger coming from the company with in-house technology.
The Oppo A7 has a 6.2 inches diagonal display with 720 pixel resolution, and a 19:9 aspect ratio. It also has a waterdrop notch, which is the case of most recent Oppo phones. The Chinese version of the A7 will have come with a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. In other markets like Nepal will get a 32GB internal storage variant. Both internal storages are expandable via a microSD card slot.
At the camera department, you will find a modest, dual camera setup at the back – 13MP + 2MP. The more impressive sensor is behind the front-facing snapper – 16MP, with plenty AI features, including a special 8MP Beauty shot. The camera setup on the back allows you to edit the background blur after taking a shot. The Oppo A7 comes with a huge 4230mAh battery and runs in Color OS 5.2.
HyperBoost, the impressive feature of the Oppo A7,was introduced at a special event back in mid-October as an answer to Huawei’s GPU Turbo technology. The feature adapts CPU and GPU usage to provide up to 31% smoother experience in selected mobile games, including Arena of Valor, PUBG, and the latest FIFA. This is the first midranger to get the Oppo in-house technology and just the second after Oppo RX17 Pro.
