Singapore, 20 November, 2015 – The ever-evolving smartphone brand OPPO will launch its newest member of the R7 series, the R7s on November 26, 2015. Apart from its impressive 4GB RAM, the R7s inherits the metal unibody design of the R7 series and boasts a more expansive 5.5-inch AMOLED 2.5D screen (larger than the R7 and R7 Plus) backed up with the strength of 4th-generation Corning Gorilla Glass, a generous 3070 mAh battery and 32GB of expandable storage.
With elegant curves, air-craft grade metal unibody and a 2.5D arc-edge glass screen, the R7s is as much a pleasure to hold as it is to look at.
The R7s is the brand’s first smartphone to sport 4GB of RAM on the latest ColorOS allowing users, particularly those with higher media consumption, to enjoy speedier app launches and boot speeds. Even with the enhancements made for better performance, the R7s still maintains its sleekness – in fact, it is slimmer and lighter than its predecessor, the R7 Plus.
Managing Director of OPPO Singapore, Sean Deng, said “The OPPO R7s is a definite front runner for being a premium smartphone that caters specifically to users who want a larger screen phone that lasts longer and has better performance, without a hefty price tag.”
Style in a Flash: Key Features of the R7s
· Flash Performance with 4GB RAM and ColorOS 2.1
The OPPO R7s boasts flash-speed performance with 4GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, and an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. Users can look forward to lightning-fast downloads of games and programs and smooth multitasking performance to match. The R7s’ dual-sim card slot also supports expandable memory up to an additional 128GB, allowing users to take more of their favourite media with them wherever they go.
OPPO’s in-house ColorOS 2.1, which is based on the Android 5.1, has been thoroughly upgraded. It now has a faster boot-up and is optimised for power saving, meanwhile providing a more elegant and intuitive interface, smoother operation, better image experience and richer mobile internet services.
· Flash Charging x High Battery Capacity
The high capacity battery boasts 3070 mAh of capacity, and comes paired with VOOC Flash Charge technology, which gives 2 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging. With VOOC Flash Charge, the R7s can charge up to 90% in only 50 minutes.
To test battery life, OPPO used a mechanical arm to simulate real-world use of the phone. The arm mimics human actions, doing everything from going online, to taking pictures and talking on the phone. The tests clocked the R7s battery at 13 hours and 15 minutes, long enough to use the phone continuously from morning until night.
· Capture Fleeting Moments with Flash Shot
Like other R7s series devices, the R7s camera uses Flash Shot technology, a triple-threat feature that assures fast launch, fast focus and stable imaging. The R7s boasts of a specially developed Hybrid Focus, combining Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) and Contrast Auto Focus to capture brilliant images even in low light settings. The Hybrid Focus feature is equal to that of an SLR camera that opens 30% faster than before. A smart anti-shake optimisation algorithm for both the rear-facing 13-megapixel and front-facing 8-megapixel cameras enables users to capture clear, beautiful pictures even in fast-paced situations.
The lightning-quick functionality of the camera is paired with OPPO’s Pure Image 2.0 platform, providing a versatile range of plug-ins to please everyone from the aspiring photographer to the selfie fanatic.
· Take Unforgettable Selfies with Screen Flash
Released as part of ColorOS 2.1 in May 2015, the groundbreaking Screen Flash feature uses a burst of light from the display to brighten the faces of selfie snappers even in low light. Together with the Beautify 3.0 plug-in, Screen Flash ensures that selfies taken with the R7s will always be stunning.
