Oppo has announced the availability of a diamond black variant of its Oppo F7 smartphone in India. The smartphone was announced at the event on March 26, but it was only available in solar red and moonlight silver colors. Now the Chinese smartphone maker has added third color option to the mix.
Oppo says the F7 Diamond Black variant will go on its first sale on April 21, and will be available via online platforms including Flipkart, Amazon India and Paytm. The Diamond Black variant comes with the same specifications like other model, but stands out mainly for its design. The back panel of the Diamond Black model seems as if it is using diamond cuts on the surface, and a contour design generally seen on Swiss watches.
“We always appreciate the feedback of the youth and try and come up with devices that fulfill the demands of our young consumers. We feel the color of the device will resonate well with the youth as smartphones are an extension of one’s personality in today’s day and age. With the F7 Diamond Black version we have tried to incorporate an enthralling design with an amazing storage of 128GB to ensure our consumers can store all their precious memories spent with friends and family,” said Will Yang, Brand Director, Oppo India.
