The Oppo F7 competes with the Moto X4, Nokia 7 Plus and Vivo V9 smartphones in the country. The highlight or the attraction of the F7 is its design and the 19:9 aspect ratio notched display, which is similar to what we have seen on the Apple iPhone X. But the notch on the Oppo F7 is smaller than the one present on the flagship iPhone X.

The Oppo F7 carries a 25MP selfie camera- the first in any smartphone released till today. Oppo has thrown in features such as Bokeh mode, AR Stickers, a real-time HDR mode which Oppo is betting big and of course a beauty mode. A 16MP camera is present at the back of the phone with PDAF, f/1.8 aperture and LED flash. The Oppo F7 will be capable of capturing good images during low-light, thanks to the wide aperture.
