Close on the heels of Vivo V9 (Review), Oppo has launched its Notch display phone F7. All the specs and images of the phone had already leaked ahead of the launch, so there weren’t many surprises tossed our way at the gala launch.(हिंदी में पढ़े)
The Oppo F7 treads along the same lines as Vivo V9. It’s a ‘Selfie-expert’ with a 25MP front camera and has an immersive display with a notch and 88 percent screen-to-body ratio. There are no dual cameras on the phone, however.

- The selfie software includes AI beautify 2.0. The phone also uses AI to understand backdrop and adjust camera settings accordingly.
- The F7 runs on Color OS 5.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
- The phone houses a 3400mAh battery.
- The handset includes Face Unlock and Fingerprint sensor.
Oppo F7 Features and Specs
The F7 is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P60 octa-core chipset. This is a recently launched 12nm process based SoC meant to deliver AI smarts to mid-range phones. There are 4x Cortex-A73 cores clubbed with 4x Cortex-A53 cores – all with a maximum clock frequency of 2.0GHz.
MediaTek hasn’t detailed its dedicated AI hardware, but it’s supposed to be 2X faster than GPU at machine learning (claims MediaTek). The chipset is supported by 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The software running on the handset is Color OS 5.0 based on Android Oreo.
The primary attraction is the 6.23-inch Full HD+ (19:9) display that comes with a notch – apparently the latest rage on the Android side of things.
The F7 is the first phone to include Sony IMX576 sensor with Sensor HDR (Hardware HDR). The 25MP selfie camera uses AI to beautify accurately in tricky lighting and has HDR support for balanced exposure. You also get a software-powered portrait mode for selfies.
On the rear, the Oppo F7 has a single 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and 4K recording support. Other features include 3400mAh battery, 4G VoLTE support, Bluetooth, and dual-band Wi-Fi.
