Soon after it was listed, the Oppo Neo 7 has been officially unveiled in India and will retail for Rs 9990. The handset will hit markets by the end of this week, just in time for Diwali sales.
The entry-level Oppo Neo 7 is a significant upgrade over its predecessor, which was also launched at Rs 9990 and released in June this year. The new phone has a 5-inch qHD (540 x 960p) display, 16GB of ROM and a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, as opposed to the previous variant’s 4.5-inch 480 x 854p screen, 8GB of ROM and 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek SoC.
Oppo has furnished the smartphone with a fiber glass back, which it claims to have strengthened through 13 layers of coating. The manufacturer has further equipped the phone with a microSD card slot to add up to 128GB of extra space. Its daily operations are conducted through a non-removable 2420mAh battery with the support of 1GB of RAM.
Coming to its camera department, the Neo 7 carries an 8MP primary snapper accompanied by LED flash and an UltraHD feature to bump up the resolution of photos to 24MP. There’s also a 5MP front-facing lens with screen flash on board, with a light-sensitive sensor automatically adjusting brightness according to the surrounding environment.
