Oppo F7 will join the ranks of selfie smartphones targeting the mid-range segment of the Indian market when it is unveiled in the country in a few short minutes. The Oppo F7 India launch is being heavily promoted on social media, with the Chinese brand roping in several celebrities and cricketers to tout its selfie-taking capabilities. Of course, the official teasers have given away a crucial part of the smartphone's design - the selfie notch that is lifted straight from the iPhone X.

And except the price and release date, we know pretty much about the handset since leaks and teasers over the past couple of weeks have revealed all the key specifications and features to the handset too.
