Oppo has introduced a new mid-range 5G smartphone named Oppo K7x in China. It is a slightly improved version of the Oppo K7 unveiled about three months ago. It was also a 5G-capable phone but the newest model has various features and specifications that are an improvement over the previous model.
The Oppo K7x sports a 6.5-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) punch-hole LTPS display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It has a peak brightness of 600 nits, 405ppi pixel density, and 90.5% screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood, it has the MediaTek Dimensity 720 processor which is an octa-core chip clocked at 2.0GHz. It is 5G-compatible and comes with ARM NATT MC3 GPU.
The phone is available in a single configuration of 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB onboard UFS 2.1 storage. The quad-camera setup on the back includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The front camera is a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture.
The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 30W VOOC 4.0 fast charging. On the software front, it will be running ColorOS 7.2 based on Android 10. Other features include a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Oppo has priced the K7x at CNY 1,499 (about $223) for the sole 6GB/128GB model. It will go on sale starting November 11th with an option to choose from Blue Mirror and Black Shadow color options. There are no words on the global availability of the smartphone yet,
