OPPO confirms its upcoming R7 handset will have a full metal unibody
Now that the OPPO R7’s name and release month have been officially confirmed by the company, it looks like we’re now getting some more information on what materials the handset will made from. Keeping in line with the metal-clad R5, OPPO’s new R7 handset will feature a full metal unibody.
As explained by the company:
Besides further increasing the metallic ratio, the OPPO R7 sports a metal unibody undergoing 48 polishing processes to retain the original metallic flavor as well as a curvy and lustrous charm, thus delivering a peerless feel in the hand.
In addition to the metallic unibody, the R7 will come with a 2.5D glass touchscreen, extremely narrow bezels, and will feature a super slim design – something we’ve now come to expect from the company’s ‘R’ line.
The super-thin OPPO R5 had a camera sensor that protruded visibly out of the chassis. This was ultimately a tradeoff that OPPO had to make to shave off millimeters without affecting image quality. And looking at the press image above, we can now see that the R7 will follow suit. Obviously we won’t be able to tell exactly how much the camera sensor sticks out until we get some hands-on time with the device, so we’ll need to hold off any judgement until the phone is announced sometime later this month.
OPPO’s R7 Will Have a Full Metal Unibody
Having been frequently exposed on major media and social sites, the excitement surrounding OPPO’s much-anticipated new phone, the R7, has become increasingly clear. With an ultra-thin body, super-narrow bezels and an officially confirmed 2.5D touch screen, the OPPO R7combines the most fashionable elements of the smartphone world.
As a leader of smartphone design and innovation, OPPO has been known for its classy product design and state-of-the-art manufacturing expertise. From the world’s first motorized rotating camera phone, the OPPO N3, to the world’s thinnest smartphone less than 5mm thick, the OPPO R5, and the OPPO R1C with its stunning sapphire glass back cover, OPPO has proven its strong all-round innovative strength.
As the successor to the OPPO R5, which boasts silk-like metallic texture, a strong body and a unique stainless steel micro-arc frame and back, the OPPO R7 has even more to offer. In addition to the 2.5D touch screen, it continues the metallic design of the premium R series to provide a luxurious feel as well as a high-quality visual experience. Besides further increasing the metallic ratio, the OPPO R7 sports a metal unibody undergoing 48 polishing processes to retain the original metallic flavor as well as a curvy and lustrous charm, thus delivering a peerless feel in the hand.
On the basis of the micro-arc frame of the R5, the R7 has even more thoughtful features in its body curves to fit the hand perfectly. Though the R7 adopts a metal unibody, it’s forged in a way which provides more curves to ensure optimum handling comfort.
As the time of release approaches, the OPPO R7 will soon reveal itself in all its glamor. Even with its other high specs aside,
