OPPO, a massively popular smartphone brand locally has just launched their much anticipated OPPO F7. Dressed much like other devices for 2018, the phone does come with a notch at the top of the screen. It does make the display feel much larger than your standard 6.23-inch Full HD+ display though. The front of the device is now 88% screen, and comes with 19:9 aspect ratio as well. However, the bottom bezel is slightly thicker than we expected, similar to past OPPO devices.

Bringing in more colours while keeping your face bright. If you wish, you can also utilise AR stickers when taking selfies, to give you that extra quirkiness. Overtime, the AI will learn your selfie needs and automatically adjust your selfies to your liking, so you will no longer have the need to edit them.
