OPPO will officially unveil the R7 this May (updated)
Update: Oppo reached out to us and wanted to clarify that the teaser image below actually contains several keywords (in Chinese) that help give us a better picture of what to expect from the OPPO R7:
- Keyword 1: Super Slim
- Keyword 2: Lightning Flash Charging Speed
- Keyword 3: 2.5D Glass
Interestingly enough, to better illustrate the super slim design and the 2.5D glass, OPPO referenced to three previously leaked images of the device, all-but confirming that the images are legit:
Traditionally, OPPO hasn’t been the most secretive company when it comes to product leaks, and that’s especially true with the “bezel-less” phone we’ve been hearing so much about. The smartphone, which is now confirmed as the R7, has been leaked and shown off in multiple photo sets and videos over the past few weeks. It sounds like we’re now getting closer to an official unveiling, thanks to two new teaser images the company set live on the internet earlier today.
The first image (shown above) was posted to OPPO’s Facebook page with the caption “If you count on what you want, and do what you need, you’ll receive both and lose nothing. The R7 is coming. #OPPOR7.” Unfortunately the caption doesn’t offer up any new information to us, aside from the smartphone’s official name, and that it’s coming soon.
This next image comes to us from OPPO’s Weibo page, giving us a little more information than the first teaser. We now know that the device will be officially unveiled this May, which backs up previous rumors we’ve heard regarding the phone’s release date. Also, if you take a closer look at the ‘7’ in the image, you’ll see the company included the word VOOC, which is OPPO’s in-house built fast charging technology. We’ve seen VOOC charging on previous OPPO devices like the N3, R5, Find 7 and Find 7a, and it’s nice to see the company including it on more smartphones.
We’ll likely see more teaser images from the company before the phone’s unveiling, and we’ll be sure to let you know when we hear anything more about the device.
