Oppo India has today launched two new slim metal unibody smartphones – The Oppo R7 Lite and Oppo R7 Plus in India, priced at 19,990 INR and 29,990 INR. As you would have guessed by now, the Plus moniker implies the difference in size.
The R7 Lite is just 6.3 mm thick and sports a 5 Inch 720p AMOLED display, while the Oppo R7 Plus includes a bigger 6 Inch 1080p full HD AMOLED panel. Both devices are powered by Snapdragon 615 octa core chipsets, include 16GB expandable storage and are running Android 5.1 Lollipop based Color OS2.0.
Even the camera module is also similar on both devices. Oppo R7 Lite employs a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash, Sony IMX214 sensor and f/2.2 aperture lens, While R7 Plus additionally includes dual tone flash and laser auto focus. For selfies, both R7 Lite and R7 Plus rely on 8MP front snapper with f2.4 lens on top.
Oppo R7 Plus also has a finger print sensor below the camera sensor, and the larger form factor permits it to house a bigger 4100mAh battery (vs 2320mAh). Oppo’s signature VOOC rapid charging technology is present on both smartphones.
Other features include 4G LTE / 3G, WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, USB OTG and Hybrid Dual SIM slots.
