Design of the Oppo Reno7 5G
The Oppo Reno7 5G has more of thick smartphone design and is not that really slim or smooth. Almost looks similar to the iPhone 12 and 13 series design around the corners. It is quite sad, because by comparing the above illustration of the Oppo Reno7 5G and the illustration below, the Oppo Reno5 5G, the Oppo Reno7 5G looks slimmer and more attractive.
The other difference these two smartphones have, is the rear camera layout. Where the Oppo Reno5 5G makes use of four rear camera lenses, the Oppo Reno7 5G makes use of three rear camera lenses, whereas two of the three rear camera lenses are bigger. Would be interesting to see the specs for the rear camera lenses if the Oppo Reno7 5G has improved or decreased its rear camera value against its predecessor.
Then the final difference between the two smartphones in terms of design, is the jack plug in. The Oppo Reno7 5G does not offer a jack plug in option. Thus, you will need an other way to listen music, videos or meetings privately on the Oppo Reno7 5G. For some users, it will be a nuisance. For others, it won’t due they make use of wireless headphones or earphones.
Rest, the buttons and type-C plug in and front camera of the Oppo Reno7 5G are on the same positions as the Oppo Reno5 5G. To be honest, I do not like the thick design. However, the rear camera layout of the Oppo Reno7 5G I find quite interesting and hope the specs are better compare to its predecessor.
Colors available for the Oppo Reno7 5G
The Oppo Reno7 5G will be available in the following colors:
- Gradient Blue
- Midnight Black
The gold color looks more like a light pink color than a gold color for me. Will definitely attract some users. However, the gradient blue stands more out of the three smartphone colors. Thus, I believe there will be more sales and demand for the gradient blue Oppo Reno7 5G.
Oppo Reno5 5G VS Oppo Reno7 5G
The main differences between the Oppo Reno5 5G and the Oppo Reno7 5G are the following:
- Size – The Oppo Reno7 5G is 0,12 inches bigger than the Oppo Reno5 5G. Not much of a difference.
- Rear Camera – The section I am most curious about. The Oppo Reno7 5G has one less rear camera lens as compare to the Oppo Reno5 5G. However, in terms of quality specs, the Oppo Reno7 5G’s rear camera lenses has more megapixels as compare to the Oppo Reno5 5G’s rear camera lenses. Thus, if you want the best camera smartphone out of the two, pick the Oppo Reno7 5G.
- Battery Capacity – The Oppo Reno7 5G’s battery has 200mAh more battery capacity as the Oppo Reno5 5G’s battery. Meaning the Oppo Reno7 5G will last longer before having the need recharge it with power as compare to the Oppo Reno5 5G. The fast charging time period for the Oppo Reno7 5G is undetermined, but the 60w charging capability of it, is less than compare to the Oppo Reno5 5G’s charging speed capability. Meaning the Oppo Reno7 5G will take a bit longer to fully fast charge as compare to the Oppo Reno5 5G.
Overall: The Oppo Reno7 5G has great camera specs. If you want a good camera smartphone with a good battery life, then the Oppo Reno7 5G will satisfy you completely.
Retail Price for the Oppo Reno7 5G
Here is an assumption of what the retail price of the Oppo Reno7 5G will be in different currencies:
Just remember this is just an assumption and the prices may be different at other retail stores.
The Oppo Reno7 5G does look impressive in terms of camera specs and battery life. Plus it isn’t an expensive smartphone. Most users will be able to afford the Oppo Reno7 5G.
The only problems I have for the Oppo Reno7 5G is its design itself. Why did Oppo decided to give the Oppo Reno7 5G a thick look that is similar to the iPhone 12 or 13 series? The slimmer design of the Oppo Reno5 5G looks more attractive that the Oppo Reno7 5G thick design. Maybe it is for extra protection for the smartphone itself? Or is it to compete against the iPhone brand?
Overall, the Oppo Reno7 5G has great camera specs and beautiful camera layout. Thus, camera smartphone lovers must watch out for this smartphone.
