Oppo unveiled the latest additions to its smartphone lineup this morning in China. The R7 and R7 Plus both feature a sleek metal designs and a mixed bag of specs for what seems like a pretty fair price.

The Oppo R7 (pictured above), packs a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 615 processor, a 2320 mAh Flash Charge battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with microSD support. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat along with the company’s own ColorOS 2.1. It’s a beautiful device with an almost unibody design and impressively thin bezels.

The real star of the show, however, may be the Oppo R7 Plus (images below), which offers a nearly edge-to-edge screen. It also packs a 6-inch 1080p display, 32GB of storage, a larger 4100mAh battery, and an upgraded camera with laser focus and dual flash. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and features a fingerprint reader in back.

The cheaper Oppo R7 starts at┬áCNY 2,499 (about $402); the larger handset costs an extra 500 yuan, bringing the price to roughly $483. Both models launch on Thursday in China before expanding worldwide next month. The company hasn’t revealed plans for the U.S. just yet, but hopefully it won’t be too long before we’re able to get our hands on the latest from Oppo.
