New leaked images give us a better look at Oppo’s upcoming bezel-less smartphone

A few weeks ago, a video leaked on the web giving us a good look at Chinese manufacturer OPPO’s supposed upcoming bezel-less smartphone. Alongside a number of photos of the phone in action, the video showed someone flipping through the device’s user interface to show off the futuristic design. The phone, which has unofficially been named the R7, has now leaked in some new pictures, giving us another look at the handset.

Unfortunately there’s not any new information to report here, but it’s still nice to see more photos of the device out in the wild. And aside from the aesthetics of the device, we really have no solid information on the specs it will bring to the table. A few previous rumors suggest that the device could carry a 5.5-inch display, a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6795 processor, a 20.7MP rear-facing camera and measure just 4.85mm thick.

Oppo is supposedly achieving this bezel-less look using a patent filed by the company last December. The schematic below shows how the beveled side of glass can refract light, creating the illusion that the screen is larger than in reality and concealing the margin (marked 22) that houses electronic components.

Like any other rumor or leak, this should still be taken with a grain of salt. But seeing as how there’s now a video and multiple photo sets of the device, we’re assuming that this device is real, and that it could eventually make its way to market.
