Oppo announced the launch of its flagship F7 smartphone last month for a price of Rs 21,990 in India which was initially made available in Moonlight Silver and Solar Red variants. The Chinese manufacturer has added yet another variant to the list with a new Diamond Black Special Edition Oppo F7 which is packed with a configuration that matches the most expensive variant of the smartphone.
A week after being announced on open sale through Amazon and Flipkart, the Oppo F7 Special Edition will start selling from April 21 onwards through all major online platforms including Paytm. What’s so special about the Diamond Black variant of the Oppo F7 is the multi-layered glass cover at the back cut in such a way as to resemble the cuts on a diamond, that reflects light through carefully cut patterns at different angles.
On the inside, the new Diamond Black edition of the Oppo F7 also features a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset with 6GB RAM and 128GB of onboard stoppage like some other version of the recently launched smartphone. The F7 is the first Oppo phone to feature an iPhone X like notch and sports a 6.23-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels. The device feature a single 16MP camera on the back with a f/1.8 aperture, PDAF and LED flash while the front-facing snapper is a much powerful 25MP lens with f/2.0 aperture.
Oppo F7 Diamond Black Special Edition like the rest of its variants runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with ColorOS 5.0 on top and features a 3,400mAh battery. While the standard variant is available for Rs 21,990, Oppo is selling this Diamond Black variant for an asking price of Rs 26,990 in India, which will be available on sale on Amazon, Flipkart and Paytm.
Speaking about the announcement, Oppo India Brand Director, Will Yang said “We always appreciate the feedback of the youth and try and come up with devices that fulfill the demands of our young consumers. We feel the color of the device will resonate well with the youth as smartphones are an extension of one’s personality in today’s day and age. With the F7 Diamond Black version, we have tried to incorporate an enthralling design with an amazing storage of 128GB to ensure our consumers can store all their precious memories spent with friends and family”.
