Oppo R7 now up for international pre-orders

Over a month after it was launched in China, the high-end Oppo R7 smartphone is now officially up for pre-orders internationally, including in the US.

The handset's pre-order price tag is $399 – keep in mind that it is an unlocked version that does not support US LTE bands and comes with a European charging plug. The device is available in silver and gold colour options.

Another point worth mentioning here is that for a limited time, the company is also giving away a pair of iLike Speed Metal headsets for free to those who pre-order the device, which will start shipping early next month.
