Chinese handset maker Oppo is working on yet another mid-range 18:9 display smartphone dubbed as Oppo A79. In a new report today, the Oppo A79 specs have been leaked along with the first press renders. Like many upcoming phones, the Oppo A79 will also sport a full-screen design and offer a big 6-inch display.
Earlier this month, Oppo launched three new phones with a full screen 18:9 display. The company launched R11s, R11s Plus in China while the Oppo F5 was launching in India. Now, it seems like Oppo has taken the full-screen display trend seriously and launching the A79 very soon. The phone is expected to be a mid-range device just like the Oppo F5.

The latest leaked render comes from SlashLeaks and it suggests that the OPPO A79 will feature an identical design to the OPPO F5. The phone will come with minimal bezels on each side and without a home button. The top bezel houses the front camera, the earpiece, and the ambient light sensor.
