oppo r1cOppo is a brand out of China and one that some of you guys might not be too familiar with, although the company has made some strides in the past year or so with impressive handsets like the Oppo Find 7 with its QHD display, which was also one of the first few QHD handsets in the market at that time.

Now if you’re wondering what else could Oppo be up to, you might be interested to learn that there are rumors that the Chinese company could be planning a new smartphone launch this coming Wednesday. The handset that will be launched is the Oppo R1C which will be part of the company’s Oppo R lineup.

According to the rumored specs, the Oppo R1C will feature a 5-inch HD display. It will also be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset under its hood and will come with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera.

In fact the handset sounds a lot like the recently announced Samsung Galaxy A7, but if you’re a fan of Oppo’s products then perhaps this might have a bigger appeal. No word on which markets the Oppo R1C will be launched in, besides China, or how much it will cost, but check back with us this Wednesday for the details.
