Perhaps Oppo isn’t a mobile maker that we’ve heard as much in the States, it’s pretty popular in India, where it is considered the biggest rival of another Chinese mobile company – Xiaomi. Hoping to gain global popularity, Oppo is constantly expanding its lineup so as to meet the needs of various customers. Conscious of the importance of social media in our lives, the company have recently released the Oppo F3, a phone supposed to be a selfie expert with an impressive front camera.
Today, Chinese manufacturer – Oppo – unveiled two new phablets, the R9 and R9 Plus. Both devices come closed in a full-metal body case finished with really slim side bezels and work on the updated version of the company’s Color OS based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. Both phones come equipped with powerful hardware, including solid cameras, 4GB RAM, AMOLED displays and quite competitive price compared to other flagship smartphones released this year.
Over the past couple of years the market of mid-range and entry-level smartphones has changed beyond recognition. What was once reserved only for the most premium devices is now a standard in more modest handsets. Phones launched with somewhat less demanding customers in mind now combine decent enough hardware with pretty attractive design and such is Oppo’s latest offering. Introduced earlier today, the Oppo Neo 7 is an affordable 5-inch Android phone for die hard fans as beyond the design, the handset has not much to offer for $200.
Remember the Oppo Neo 5 which was released in summer 2014? Since the phone is going to celebrate its first birthday pretty soon, it’s a good time for a successor to make an appearance. And it did. In fact, the Chinese manufacturer launched two new handsets – the Oppo Neo 5 2nd generation got official in pair with an upgraded sibling, the Oppo 5S.
It came to our attention that two major Chinese smartphone makers, Huawei and Oppo, are about to release new devices. Both companies have launched a bunch of interesting phones in the past few months and apparently they won’t stop there. How do we know? Because the Huawei Honor 7 and the Oppo A51 just got certified by TENAA – China’s federal agency equivalent to the FCC in the US.
Oppo has many devoted fans in its home market China, but elsewhere the brand has been fairly unrecognizable so far. This year the company celebrates its 10th birthday and finally begins to mark its presence in other regions. Oppo began as a maker of entry-level devices and now is moving up towards high-end tier. Its latest offerings the Oppo R7 and R7 Plus which went official earlier today are the best proof. Both phones will go on sale tomorrow in China and next month worldwide.
Smartphone makers like to surprise their customers and rarely reveal details regarding their new devices before their official announcement. However, it almost never happens that a phone is kept a secret until the day it’s unveiled. Very often we know all the juicy details long before the big day and we usually learn them from leaks and rumors. This time, though, it’s the manufacturer itself who spilled the beans and, what’s interesting, didn’t do so by accident but intentionally. As a result, we now know that the Oppo R7 will debut together with a phablet called Oppo R7 Plus.
Oppo begins new year in a busy manner and is expanding its smartphones portfolio with new Android phones. In addition to the Oppo U3 having just received its TENAA network license, Oppo also introduced a new member of the R1 series. Earlier today the Chinese manufacturer launched dual-SIM Oppo R1C Android phone featuring sapphire glass panel, 64-bit octa-core, and 13-megapixel camera.
One year after introducing the Oppo N1, Oppo company has held a special conference in Singapore during which they took the wraps off of the new Oppo N3 with a motorized swivel camera replacing traditional two separate units. Apart from the innovative camera solution the device received also a considerable hardware improvement and several upgrades for the camera shooter. Feel interested in further details? Let’s take a close-up at the new Oppo N3.
For many years smartphone industry has been obsessed with thin phones. Even though in most cases the thickness of the phone is not a decisive factor when choosing a new device, there is a large group of users who would love to boast about how skinny their handsets are. And manufacturer feed on this desire and go out of their way to make their products as slim as possible. Up until yesterday, the record holder was the Gionee Elife S5.1 which is just 5.15 mm thick. Today we have a new winner. Oppo has officially announced the Oppo R5, world’s thinnest smartphone measuring only 4.85 mm.
New render leaks out purportedly showing the forthcoming Oppo N3 without a cylindrical funny designed top
Oppo is a manufacturer known for their concern for the high quality and supreme design of the launched products. Last year we could witness the premiere of the Oppo N1, a massive 5.9-inch smartphone equipped with an unique camera able to swivel 206 degrees. And just right now the company is teasing us with the N1 successor’s release, so no wonder that the whole net is buzzing with rumors and leaks on the phone. Few weeks ago we were talking about the Oppo N3’s cylindrical funny designed top, today we got renders reportedly denying the innovative and unusual feature.
Following a teaser of a new 4G smartphone, Oppo officially unveiled its latest offering in Malaysia which is supposed to bring LTE connectivity to a much wider audience. Called Oppo Neo 5 LTE, the phone is a successor to the Oppo Neo and comes with significantly updated internals and a price tag that makes it one of the most budget-friendly phones that you can get your hands on.
In May, the Chinese company Oppo announced unveiling the compact version of the 5.9-inch Oppo N1. Although the manufacturer officially confirmed the Oppo N1 Mini’s premiere it is dosing us with small portions of information on the handset’s specs, leaving us the space for countless speculations. And just right now the company teases its fans on social media with a new promo telling about the N1 Mini’s ‘revolutionary 24-megapixel Ultra HD’ camera.
Aimed at selfie enthusiasts, the Oppo N1 smartphone with a unique 13MP swiveling camera was launched in December last year. Fast forward five months and Oppo announces the Oppo N1 Mini, a smaller and more modest model but still featuring the same impressive rotating camera. The N1 new Mini is now live on Oppo’s website and most likely will be introduced in more details on June 11th.
Remember the amazing Oppo Find 7 that Oppo unveiled last month? Starting today you have a chance to get one as the company opened pre-orders for the phone. Well, it’s not exactly the flagship Find 7, but rather its international, slightly slimmed down and unlocked version called the Find 7a, but still it’s a great opportunity to grab a premium phone with a bunch of freebies at a pretty low price. The handset costs $499 in the US and €399 in Europe and is available through Oppo’s website without any contracts.
As expected, Oppo announced today its long anticipated Oppo Find 7 phone. The new Find 7 flagship Android smartphone is a successor of the Find 5 released back in 2012. Since the company skipped one year, it apparently thought it would be appropriate to also skip one number, hence the device is called Find 7 instead of Find 6. We are very happy to confirm that most rumors panned out and the ambitious phone indeed features QHD display, camera taking 50MP photos and Snapdragon 801 Soc.
Why to choose Android phone over Apple’s iPhone or Windows Phone? Well, lets start with the most noticeable reason – the variety of choices. As you may noticed Android market offers customers literally dozens of options to choose a handset from. Android phones are offered by all leading smartphone makers including Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and Sony, as well as most lesser known located all over the world.
You might have heard that Oppo was about to announce a new phone called Oppo Neo. If so, we have an update for you that the phone is here. Well, not “here” as in the US, but nonetheless it is official. Just a day after teasing the Oppo Neo on Twitter, the Indonesian branch of the Chinese phone maker unveiled the device. For this moment, the phone will be available only in Indonesia for a price of IDR 2,599,000 which is an equivalent of $215.
In contrast to what the name may suggest, the Oppo Find 7, a refreshed version of the Oppo Find 5, won’t arrive to the market equipped with a 7-inch screen. Oppo has released one more teaser announcing that the phone will sport a 5.5-inch screen with 1440×2560 pixel resolution, called also 2K display. The combination of the display size and resolution calculates that the Find 7 will hit the market with an impressive 538 ppi (pixels per inch) screen.
The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition has arrived to the market and can be now purchased directly from Oppo’s online store. The phone is priced at $599 without contract and is unlocked right out the box, which means that you can use it with any GSM carrier of your choice such as AT&T, T-Mobile or Straight Talk. The phone of course does not require signing up any long term contracts.
