OPPO Australia has announced a new smartphone this morning, the entry-level AX7 with premium features, and without a premium price-tag. The AX7 from OPPO includes a dual-camera powered by AI, a 4,230mAh battery, waterdrop notch design and a 6.3-inch HD display.

OPPO’s A-series has been among the forefront of entry-level smartphones in Australia, providing a quality device for those without an enormous budget.

Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia, believes the AX7 continues this trend and provides Aussies with an entry-level device that will delight and excite them:

“The AX7 is OPPO’s next premium-grade smartphone, giving Aussies access to a beautifully designed smartphone and amazing features, without having to break the bank. We believe our customers shouldn’t have to compromise on quality or design when choosing an entry-level smartphone. This is what our A series delivers and it continues to be extremely popular with Australians. With the new features and capabilities the AX7 has brought to this price bracket, we expect our latest device to be a major hit locally,” he said.

Among the standout features are a camera to rival more expensive smartphones, a minimal waterdrop-style notch to maximise screen space, and a giant battery to power all-day use.

Cameras to rival the best

OPPO has a heritage of providing amazing cameras across its range of devices. The AX7 is no different. It sports a 13+2MP AI enhanced dual rear camera set-up, with optical image stabilisation. The front camera is an enhanced 16MP selfie camera, with F2.0 aperture and a wide angle lens, making it the ultimate sidekick for capturing the best selfies and group shots.

Additionally, OPPO has included its AR stickers in the AX7, allowing for more personalisation and enjoyment when taking selfies.

Waterdrop design offers a more immersive experience

What better way to immerse yourself in your favourite moments than with a huge 6.2-inch AMOLED HD+ screen. With OPPO’s innovative waterdrop design, the AX7 has a screen to body ratio of 88.4 per cent, allowing for a more immersive user experience. Whether it’s playing games, streaming your favourite shows or viewing your latest snaps, the AX7 has a screen to rival the best.

Additionally, the AX7 comes with Corning Gorilla Glass, protecting your phone from scratches and falls.

Supercharged performance and big battery will keep you going

The AX series has always had a large battery to keep you powered throughout the day. The AX7 is no different, sporting a 4230mAh battery. OPPO’s smart and thoughtful AI battery management enhances the battery life further, by freezing inactive apps and reducing excess caching, giving you more time to power through your day.

In addition to the battery, the AX7 comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 processor, 4GB RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage, giving customers a smooth experience that enables faster and easier multitasking, as well as superb performance, whether you’re immersed in a movie or a game.

The OPPO AX7 is also based on Android 8.1 and includes OPPO’s innovative, and upgraded ColorOS5.2, providing a smarter, more efficient and convenient user experience.

OPPO AX7 will be available to purchase outright for $399 from the following retailers. Please note available device colours and on-sale dates vary across retailers:
