Oppo is set to launch their larger R7 Plus handset in Australia next month, and while we know the handset will cost $599, we’re now finding out a bit more about when the phone will be coming, with Oppo advising that the phone will be available for pre-order on the 7th of September.
The date for pre-orders was given in response to a Twitter enquiry from an Oppo fan (What did we do before Twitter?), and though they didn’t state it, the pre-orders will most likely be going live at Dick Smith.
Hi @hmachiato. You'll be able to pre-order the R7 Plus on the 7th of Sep for the launch soon after.

The Oppo R7 Plus is a larger version of the Oppo R7 which is currently on-sale at Dick Smith, the Oppo website and through Optus for $0 upfront on a $40 plan. The Oppo R7 Plus has several hardware updates with the larger chassis, including a larger 6″ display, with 32GB of onboard storage, larger 4,100mAh battery and a rear mounted fingerprint sensor.
We look forward to seeing more of the R7 Plus when it launches next month, Jason currently has the Oppo R7 and a full review will be out shortly.
