OPPO Malaysia has announced that its latest smartphone, the F7, will be landing on our shores within the month. The F7 was first launched in India on 26th March, and has since gone on sale.

A Focus On AI Beauty

Many smartphone manufacturers are integrating AI into their devices these days, and OPPO is no exception. The Chinese electronics manufacturer is putting its focus on the selfie camera, with AI Beauty 2.0. It is said to be capable of scanning up to 296 facial points to alter the age and look of the subject, and is 20 percent better than the iteration on its predecessor. The front-facing camera itself is a 25-megapixel shooter, with support for HDR and AR stickers. At the back, a  single16-megapixel sensor can be found, and it comes with Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF).

Moving to the front, the F7 sports a 6.23-inch Full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19:9 plus an 88 percent screen-to-body ratio. Unsurprisingly, it also comes with a notch at the top of the display. Under the hood, it runs on a MediaTek Helio P60 processor backed by 4GB of RAM coupled with 64GB of expandable storage. There is also a 6GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage variant, though it is unknown which version will be available in Malaysia.

This dual-SIM device contains a 3,400 mAh non-removable battery which can be juiced up via a micro USB port. When it comes to software, the F7 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo on top of ColorOS 5.0. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2, 4G LTE, GPS, and also Wi-Fi 802.11.

From The Looks of it

From the looks of it, Oppo is now opting in for more MediaTek Processors instead of Qualcomm Processors. If you’re asking how it performs? Well, we do not know yet. What we can tell for sure is the fact that, Oppo is going to make things interesting with their device – considering the fact that this will be the only Android smartphone to only have a notch up top and the screen goes all the way till the end. Let’s wait and what happens.
