OPPO has quietly unveiled the OPPO K7 5G smartphone in China. It has arrived as the successor to the OPPO K5 that went official earlier this year. The K7 is the company’s first K-series phone to arrive with 5G capabilities.
Some of the key features of the OPPO K7 5G include a tall display, 48-megapixel quad cameras, a large-sized battery with fast charge support, and 5G connectivity. The OPPO K7 5G comes in multiple gradient colour options.
OPPO K7 5G specifications and features
The OPPO K7 5G features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, a 20:9 aspect ratio, and a conventional refresh rate of 60Hz. The screen is integrated with a fingerprint sensor. The display notch houses a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The Snapdragon 730G SoC that fuelled the OPPO K5 is swapped out with the Snapdragon 765G 5G mobile platform on the OPPO K7 5G. The device ships with 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. There is a dedicated microSD slot on the device for expanding the storage further.
The vertically aligned quad-camera setup available on the OPPO K7 5G features a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro shooter. The primary camera seems to be a downgrade, as the OPPO K7 featured a 64-megapixel primary shooter. The phone houses a 4,025mAh battery with 30W VOOC 4.0 Flash Charge support.
The OPPO K7 5G runs ColorOS 7.1 based on Android 10. The handset provides users with the usual connectivity features like dual SIM slots, 5G, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS, USB Type-C and a 3.5mm audio jack.
OPPO K7 5G pricing and availability
The OPPO K7 5G is now listed on popular retail sites in China in two variants, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. They are priced at RMB 1,999 (~Rs 21,550) and RMB 2,299 (~Rs 22,800) respectively. The phone is listed in multiple gradients like black, white, blue, red, and yellow.
The first sale of the OPPO K7 5G will be carried out in China on August 11th. While OPPO launched the OPPO K3 phone in India back in July 2019, it did not release the OPPO K5 in the country. Hence, it is unclear whether the company has any plans to bring OPPO K7 5G to India.
