Oppo have released more information on materials that the handset will made from. Following on with the metal-clad R5, The Oppo R7 will feature a full metal unibody.

Part of the company press release reads:

As the successor to the OPPO R5, which boasts silk-like metallic texture, a strong body and a unique stainless steel micro-arc frame and back, the OPPO R7 has even more to offer. In addition to the 2.5D touch screen, it continues the metallic design of the premium R series to provide a luxurious feel as well as a high-quality visual experience. Besides further increasing the metallic ratio, the OPPO R7 sports a metal unibody undergoing 48 polishing processes to retain the original metallic flavor as well as a curvy and lustrous charm, thus delivering a peerless feel in the hand.

The Oppo R7 will come with a 2.5D glass touchscreen, very narrow bezels, and will feature a super slim design,  something we’ve now come to expect from Oppo’s ‘R’ line.

The super-thin Oppo R5 had a camera sensor that protruded visibly out of the chassis. This was ultimately a trade-off that Oppo had to make to shave off millimeters without affecting image quality.
