Most of you must be aware that the Oppo A7 is a re-branded version of the previously launched Realme 2. Apart from an upgraded selfie camera and a waterdrop notch, the two devices have no grounds of differentiation. While Realme 2 went on sale as a Flipkart Exclusive device, the Oppo A7 stays on the ground and will be sold offline. Oppo is expecting the smartphone to take on the devices from Xiaomi, Vivo, Samsung. Since the Oppo A7 is a budget offering, it will also be going against the Realme 2, which happens to come from its sub-brand. Note that Realme 2 is already a highly popular budget smartphone and witnessed record-breaking sales during this festive season. It will be interesting to see how Oppo A7 stands against it.
