Oppo Philippines has officially launched two variants of its R7 smartphone in the Philippines – the 6-inch R7 Plus and the more compact and affordable R7 Lite. Let’s talk about the latter.

The Oppo R7 Lite has a 5-inch HD AMOLED display, octa core Snapdragon 615 processor from Qualcomm, 4G LTE connectivity and a 13MP camera at the back.

Oppo cites the R7 Lite’s aircraft-grade aluminum body, slightly curved edges (2.5D arc) of its AMOLED screen and Gorilla Glass 3 protection as elegant and premium design.

Its Snapdragon 615 chipset can operate at a maximum of 1.5GHz while 2GB of RAM helps in keeping the phone running smoothly. The company also boasts about the snappier Color OS 2.1 which now runs on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
