About 9 months after the launch of the OPPO K5, which in China is a fairly long period between one device and another, the Chinese brand now seems ready to launch its successor which will come with the name of OPPO K7. 5G. Why K7 and not K6? Well, most likely because as just mentioned, theoretically the K6 should have already been released at the beginning of the year, but it was not so. Hence the number 6 is skipped.
OPPO K7 5G: New leak confirms the arrival and some of the specifications
In any case, we know of the arrival of the OPPO K7 5G thanks to the famous Chinese leakster Digital Chat Station which on Weibo (the Chinese Twitter) has confirmed its forthcoming presentation, as well as many of the specifications. So let's go and see them more closely.
They start with the display which will have a size of 6,4 inches diagonally and a refresh rate of 60Hz. Like the predecessor, the smartphone will be equipped with an OLED panel with a teardrop notch that offers Full HD + resolution. Furthermore, always in OPPO K5 style, we should find a fingerprint reader directly on the screen.
As for the other specifications, the OPPO K7 5G could equip a 4.025mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging technology. The rear panel of the phone will feature a four-camera system with a 48-megapixel lens. as the main sensor. The predecessor had also unveiled a quad-camera setup that came with a 64-megapixel main camera. While on the front camera we still have no news.
On the performance side, OPPO's next device should arrive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G as processor, a medium-high-end SoC with excellent performance and that for the first time will be able to connect 5G in a smartphone of the "K" series.
Finally, as far as prices are concerned, the OPPO K3 released on May 23, 2019 arrived with a starting price of 1599 yuan; the OPPO K5 instead had a starting price of 1799 yuan. But given that smartphones currently on the market with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chips have a lower price, we expect the K7 5G with a possible starting price of 1399 yuan (€ 175).
