Oppo is making waves in the Nepalese smartphone market with its latest release, the Oppo F7. In the Nepali market, the company launched the Oppo A83 a few months ago. Now the new Oppo F7 has come with a new design which is a great-looking tall display with a notch at the top. It also has a new chipset, bigger storage, a larger display, and a high pixel count front camera. The Oppo F7 price in Nepal is Rs 36,590 for the 64 GB variant and Rs 46,590 for the 128 GB model.
We know that Oppo and Vivo are of the same parent company, BBK Electronics. So, Vivo V9 is also another smartphone of the same caliber and it is priced at the same range in the market. You can also have a look at that. For now, let’s discuss the features of Oppo F7 which consists of a very large LTPS IPS LCD panel, a screen resolution of 1080×2280, and a 19:9 aspect ratio.
The phone has a cool-looking skin, but we do get a notch at the top. It is common to see many manufacturers implement the notch cut to fit cameras, speakers, and sensors. Some people love it and some people don’t. But to have a full screen at the front, manufacturers either keep a small chin or have the cut.

Core Internal Hardware
The Oppo F7 not only pushes boundaries in screen real estate, it also features some powerful hardware. It houses an octa core processor on Mediatek Helio P60 chipset. It is very capable and interesting chipset. The Helio P60 has NeuroPilot AI which helps to produce better images and aids better face detection. It is much faster and much power efficient SOC.

In the case of the availability of models, Nepal is getting both models which is fantastic. In the case of the battery, the Oppo F7 runs with a 3400 mAh battery. For the operating system, F7 runs with Android Oreo out of the box. On top of Android Oppo has ColorOS 5 which is slightly different.
Display and Cameras
The Oppo F7 features a stunning 6.23-inch LTPS IPS LCD screen with 1080×2280 resolution. This gives vibrant colors and sharp details. It is fantastic for streaming videos, playing games, multimedia consumption, and gaming. This is a pretty good display because the size is big and pixel density is sufficient.
Now for Oppo F7, the camera is the part where things are interesting. The F7 houses a single 16 MP f/1.8 sensor at the back which is very good considering pixel count and aperture. At the front, there is a 25 MP f/2.0 shooter which is amazing. The front and back cameras can take very high-resolution pictures with great details without a doubt. While every company provides dual back cameras these days, Oppo F7 features a single camera which is interesting. They are betting on their software and AI features for a better image on this one.
Impressions and Analysis
The Oppo F7 looks like a good contender in the mid-range smartphone segment. It offers an impressive array of features at an attractive price point. The device has a powerful processor, ample RAM, and generous storage options. The hardware is powerful enough for multitasking and hardcore gaming as well. The display is big and sharp due to FHD+ resolution which gives an overall better visual experience. It also provides large-screen real estate for movie-watching, browsing, and games.
In regards to other features, the fingerprint sensor is at the back because the front face is almost full screen. Even though being such a new generation phone, the Oppo F7 has Micro USB 2.0. We suggest they move to USB Type C like other manufacturers for the betterment of everyone.
The cameras on the back and front both have high pixel counts. Moreover, the front camera is the most powerful and is a good deal maker for selfie lovers. It would have been cherry-topping if the Oppo F7 had 4K UHD video record support like the Vivo V9 and a slightly bigger battery. Nonetheless, the Oppo F7 is a pretty powerful and decent device in the mid-range category that is suited for selfie lovers and content consumers. Overall, Oppo F7 seems like a great package for media consumers.
