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.
