Rising Chinese company Oppo will sell its range of smartphones across 397 retail stores managed by Dick Smith.

This includes 360 Dick Smith stores, nine Move stores and 28 Powered by Dick Smith electronic departments in David Jones.

Dick Smith's retail properties will exclusively sell Oppo’s upcoming R7 flagship, a 5-inch Android smartphone that is 6mm thick, which will launch in Australia on 28 July.

The phablet R7 Plus is expected to be released locally at a later date.

Existing Oppo smartphones will go on sale across Dick Smith’s retail properties on 14 July. These include the Find 7, Find 7a, N1 Mini and N3.

Oppo did not reveal if its R5 — once the world’s thinnest smartphone at 4.85mm — will be made available at Dick Smith.

The retail partnership strategically advances Oppo’s presence in the Australian market. The Chinese smartphone company soft launched last September in Australia and then made its way into brick and mortar stores three months later after forging a partnership with AllPhones.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
