Oppo R7 leaked, could be the world’s first ‘bezel-less’ smartphone
After launching the R5 in India just last month, Oppo is now expanding its R series and is working on its next flagship smartphone. A new video has surfaced online showing off the Oppo R7 in action, and the big highlight of the upcoming flagship is going to be its almost ‘bezel-less’ screen.
The video shows the quick functions of the music and video player on the phone. It also reveals an edge-to-edge display that features ‘almost absent’ bezels on the sides. Apart from that, we can see the front camera at the top, and the three-button layout at the bottom of the screen.
GSMArena reports Oppo is the first to utilize light refraction to create an illusion of a bezel-less screen. Light refraction makes it seem like the display panel extends further sideways than it actually does in reality.
The report even states that the Oppo R7 has an octa-core MediaTek MT6795 mobile chipset and a 20.7-megapixel rear camera. The smartphone was reportedly certified from the Indonesian Telecom Certification authority, and the certification also reveals that the Oppo R7 will have support 4G LTE networks.
Additionally, the R7 is expected to be ultra-slim at 4.85 mm just like its predecessor. Details on availability and launch are rather scarce, but the Oppo R7 is expected to be available in international markets as well.
