The OPPO F7 lives up to the “selfie expert” moniker of the F series with a 25-megapixel camera on the front and a 16-megapixel counterpart at the back.
The front camera is loaded with lots of features, like “real-time HDR” and improved Artificial Intelligence smarts (AI Beauty 2.0) from what we saw in its predecessors. OPPO says that this is supposed to be a 20% improvement.
Aside from the camera, the device also has a “Super Full Screen” (others have been calling them “FullView”) which is marketing speak for a 6.2-inch display that comes in the odd 19:9 aspect ratio, a slight extension of the tall 18:9 displays we are now getting used to since they are unavoidable and some of us kind of like them, anyway.
Dimensions: 156 x 75.3 x 7.8 mm
The OPPO F7 has an awesome design, we can’t argue about that. It’s slim (just 7.8mm) and has this intriguing design concept that is good to look at and feel.
Also, the other design point is the notch. The notch is a trending design cue and more vendors are actively integrating it into their smartphone. The Huawei P20 has it and so does the OnePlus 6.
Display Size: 6.23 inches
Display Type: LTPS IPS LCD
Screen Resolution: 1080 x 2280 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 405 ppi
Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 5
The OPPO F7 has a 6.23-inch display with a 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution with a 405 ppi screen resolution density. The display is quite bright and augurs really well with the design.

A 2.0 GHz Octa-core Mediatek Helio P60 powers the OPPO F7. We would have loved a Qualcomm one, but it appears the MTK one can also work with the F7. The chipset is coupled with 4GB RAM.
In addition to that you get 64GB as internal storage and a MicroSD slot that can handle up to 256 GB of memory.

You get a 16 MP camera for general photography and a 25MP camera for your selfies.
