You probably have seen the name OPPO in banners all over Nepal, or have heard about it in some promoted TV shows. OPPO smartphones, in recent years, have taken a huge market share in Nepal. And rightly so, for they provide a great build quality and impressive cameras at an affordable price.
After launching the OPPO F7 in Nepal in April, OPPO is now getting ready to launch its smaller brother, the OPPO F7 Youth to win the hearts of the Nepali consumers, especially youths as the name suggests. However, we do not know the exact pricing or the release date of the OPPO F7 Youth yet. The company has said it will be released sometime in mid-June. So, the day is not very far off.
OPPO F7 Youth is expected to have a 6 inch 1080*2160 IPS LCD FHD+ display without a notch. Most Android users would thank god for that. Also, it will be equipped with an Helio P60 processor from MediaTek which is a mid-range processor. You’ll be getting great performance with normal day-to-day tasks like calling and watching videos on YouTube. But gaming performance won’t be as astounding. And as OPPO is very generous with RAM and storage, the F7 youth will be equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which means great multitasking experience and lots of selfies.

But even if OPPO has provided the youths with ample storage to store selfies, it will be taking away the 25MP selfie shooter found on the OPPO F7 and replacing it with 8MP one on the F7 Youth. That is a bummer. Why is OPPO playing with the hearts of Nepali Youths by taking away the one feature that they desperately wanted? The primary camera also has been pared down to 13MP but it is a small reduction. The toned down cameras are understandable because the F7 youth will have a lower price.

OPPO F7 Youth Price in Nepal (Expected): Rs. 27,000
Comparing the F7 Youth to the original F7, they are almost identical. The only differences are found in the cameras. The performance and the amount of RAM and internal Storage are similar, the design too is similar. But, and it is a big but, the F7 youth doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor which is sure to detract many youths on the market. They say that the F7 Youth makes up for it by using a face unlock system but a face unlock cannot match the simplicity and the speed of a fingerprint sensor. Also, the phone will have a little problem recognizing your face in the dark.
So, there you have it. The F7 youth will be launching soon, and we will notify you on the day it happens. If OPPO can keep the cost down to around 26,000 then the F7 Youth would be a great buy. But I will not forgive it for not including a fingerprint scanner.
