Just like previous releases, the A-series gets to have the F-series body and design bu with less powerful hardware inside.
The OPPO A7x is strongly reminscent of the new OPPO F9 from its gradient color design and diamond pattern on the back. There’s also the same dual rear camera configuration consisting of 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors, although the selfie has been downgraded to only 16-megapixel f/2.0.
OPPO’s VOOC flash charging technology is also nowhere to be found here, which is unfortunate as it’s really important feature nowadays.

Color options are limited to Twilight Blue and Starry Purple, while the Sunrise Red model is notably missing. There’s a good chance that this handset won’t ever come out of China, but it could probably go to other regions with a different name.
