OPPO offers preview to ColorOS 2.1.0i, based on Android 5.0

OPPO users are relatively happy with the hardware they get on the Chinese company’s phones. The OPPO Find 7 and Find 7a are decidedly popular because they feature robust specs at a relatively low price point. It is usually the software that drives the users nuts, with OPPO seemingly very slow to update its proprietary ColorOS up to Android Lollipop standards. Well, they may have taken their sweet time about it, but it seems that day is drawing near as OPPO unveils ColorOS 2.1.0i.

OPPO R7 Plus teased with 2.5D display, VOOC fast charging

A new TV advertisement that debuted on Friday, May 8th in China may have surprised those who are eagerly awaiting OPPO’s new smartphone that is rumored to be set for unveiling this month. The TV ad featured not one, but two new OPPO devices in the much hyped OPPO R7 and a surprise device in the OPPO R7 Plus.

OPPO’s bezel-less tech explained; curved glass, refraction in play

We were not really convinced the first time that leaks came out of OPPO’s gorgeous bezel-less wonder in the R7 that it was really without bezel. We were already thinking that it might be structurally impossible to do that. OPPO’s patent application for a refraction-type tech already told us as much. But here’s more fuel to that fire, saying that OPPO is using a curved glass display approach to achieve the “bezel-less” look.

OPPO R7 launch rumored on May 20, photos leaked once again

We've been seeing more and more leaked photos of the bezel-less OPPO R7. Obviously, these images are coming from China. Another set as been leaked proving once again that the next OPPO smartphone is gorgeous with its edge-to-edge goodness. We all know that OPPO is professional when it comes to doing stress tests on their mobile devices but with all the recent leaks, it seems the company isn't good at keeping secrets unless that is their marketing technique.

LeTV looks to be a new player in high-end devices

It wasn’t too long ago when China-based brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, and OnePlus made their debut and sounded their challenge to the established order of smartphone manufacturers. These young Chinese companies were aggressive and were willing to sell devices that have the same or almost the same specs as the flagship and high-end devices Samsung, Apple, HTC or LG – and selling them at ridiculously low prices. It looks like we have another new player in LeTV.

OPPO R7 Weibo leak shows edge-to-edge goodness

When you think of what a big deal the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge is in terms of display technology, you begin to wonder what limits there are to what sort of screens we will be getting in the near future for mobile devices. The first answer to that question seems to be with the still unreleased OPPO R7. Leaks of the new flagship phone have been touting a bezel-less screen, and new leaks from Weibo confirm that.

Watch how OPPO does a phone stress test the professional way

Built like a tank. This is how O-fans describe the OPPO smartphones. The Chinese phone manufacturer was proud to release a video of a Smash and Grab Test, showing us how they do it inside the factory. Drop test? There really is a more scientific way to do it. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge drop test did by a Korean YouTuber, this test by OPPO gives us an idea not only how tough the phone is but also how the professional geeks are over at OPPO do their job.

OPPO rumored to be working on bezel-less device, leaked images

For the record, bezels are not such bad things, you know. They facilitate ergonomics of a device, making sure there are no “ghost touches” on your touchscreen display. Also, they act as support for your display, so that there is some material that protects the screen if you happen to drop your phone (which you will). That said, the larger the bezel, the uglier your device seems to become – that is why there is this seeming obsession with slimmer bezels. But OPPO seems to be of the opinion that it can do away with the bezel entirely.
