There s been quite a bit of buzz around the Oppo R7, and a leaked render even showed the smartphone with a bezel-less edge-to-edge display. But GSMArena is reporting that the R7 will not come with the bezel-less technology that we were all hoping for.

Oppo R7 is expected flaunt a 4.7-inch display with 1080p resolution. It is said to pack a 2,000mAh battery and is likely to be powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6795 mobile chipset. It is also rumored to feature a 20.7-megapixel rear camera. The smartphone was reportedly certified from the Indonesian Telecom Certification authority, and the certification also reveals that the Oppo R7 will support 4G LTE networks.
