According to a report by Gizmo Times, the company had initially tweeted out the image with a caption that revealed the launch date as well but was later taken down.

Based on what we can make of the teaser image revealed by the company, the Oppo F7 will come with a tall full-screen display with a notch similar to the Apple iPhone X. While Oppo does not reveal much about the device itself, we also gather that the company has roped in a cricketer as the product ambassador.

The report adds that the Oppo F7 is likely to pack an octa-core MediaTek SoC with 4/6 GB RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage which can be further expanded with the help of a microSD card. The image of the phone also reveals the presence of a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the bottom of the device.

The F7 is also expected to pack a 25 MP front camera with AI capabilities that enhance the quality of selfies. The front camera will also likely feature real-time HDR, an enhanced beauty mode and AR stickers. The company has not revealed any detail about the upcoming smartphone at the time of writing except the tweet asking users to guess the name of the cricketer.
