On 20 May, Oppo is expected to unveil the R7 and a declination Plus. And although many details have already been revealed the past two months, he still kept a few secrets. A Chinese shop discovers almost all.

This is even truer when it comes from one of the most prominent brands such as Oppo.
Next Wednesday, or in two days, it is expected to unveil at least two new models: the R7 and R7 Plus.

A copy very close to Huawei and ZTE
Design side precisely, we should find ourselves facing a very similar smartphone ZTE Blade S6, with a shell made of silver-colored aluminum and a white front. The sensor and flash placed in the upper left corner so iPhone and the speaker at their opposite end to create a sense of deja vu strong enough. It remains to know the price of the mobile. JD.com on the R7 is offered at 3000 yuan or 430 euros. The same price as the Blade S6 and Huawei P8: it is no coincidence.
