Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has launched the Oppo F7 Diamond Black: Cricket Limited Edition, in India. The smartphone brand owned by BBK International Electronics has made a place for itself in the country with amazing smartphones at affordable prices. The special edition phone is set to hit the market and sell via Flipkart from 14 May 2018.
The phone is set to appeal to cricket fans, in India, where an association with the popular game and its champions often brings good dividends. The Oppo F7 Diamond Black: Cricket Edition smartphone is set to have signatures of prominent cricketers of the country like Hardik Pandya, R. Ashwin and Rohit Sharma with a fancy cover case dedicated to cricket fans. The company has launched this phone during the IPL season as a clever tactic to boost sales.
The Oppo F7 smartphone was first launched in March this year. Talking about the standard models, the phone comes in two variants – 4 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage and 6 GB RAM with 128 GB internal memory. Both the phones are powered by MediaTek Helios P60 octa core SoC. These phones run on Android Oreo 8.1 with the company’s own Color OS 5.0. The phones feature a 6.23-inch Full HD + display with a 19:9 aspect ratio.
Coming to the camera of the Oppo F7 smartphone, there is only a single-rear camera contrary to the current market trend. However, the company claims that the image quality is amazing. The phone features a 16-MP rear sensor with AI recognition features. However, the main USP of the phone is the front camera (after the cricket edition) coupled with a 25-MP sensor, with AI Beauty 2.0, which allows more precise and accurate facial recognition capabilities than any other budget smartphone in the market.
Both the phones come with expandable storage capabilities up to 256 GB with an external memory card. The phones are powered by a 3400 mAh battery.
The special cricket edition will only come in the lower variant of the phone, i.e. 4 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage. This will cost the buyer Rs 21,990. The higher model costs Rs 26,990 but the new edition is not available in the top model.
