Can you believe it? It’s been 12 years since America’s Next Top Model popped up. But like everything else that works in cycles, this one has reached the finishing line. If you were taking tips from the show (and from the woman who brought you terms like “booch”, “tooch” and “smize”), we’ve got one final tip for you to beef up your style factor.

Cycle 22, the third co-ed season, saw various challenges that involved the use of an OPPO phone (selfie challenge, anyone?) They’re the first smartphone partner for the show; and the top two winners will become the brand’s ambassadors and will travel to Southeast Asia. It’s a perfect partnership, especially since both OPPO and ANTM have a vested interest in artistic processes in their respective industries. Time to drop whatever smartphone you have, and get your hands on one that’ll up your style factor, like the new R7s, the latest model from OPPO’s stylish series of phones.

Like the other models in the R7 series, the R7s embodies “style in a flash” and is a must-have if you’re a professional who’s always on-the-go and need a stylish smartphone that can perform. The exquisite aircraft grade metallic body has undergone 48 polishing processes and boasts an expansive 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a 2.5D arc-edge. Besides looking pretty as hell, it’s also a delight to hold. Aesthetics aside, the R7s is also pretty powerful on the inside. As the brand’s first smartphone equipped with 4GB of RAM on the latest Color OS and an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, you’ll be able to enjoy quicker performance in terms of launching apps and starting up your phone.

But besides all of this and the Flash Shot technology that the R7s adopts for its rear-facing 13-megapixel and front-facing 8-megapixel cameras, what really takes the take is the 3070mAh battery. Not only does it mean that you’ll be able to use the R7s for the whole day without charging (tests have clocked the battery life at 13 hours and 15 minutes), but because the phone comes with the awesome VOOC Flash Charge technology, you’ll be able to charge your phone up to 75% in 30 minutes. Or if you’re really in a rush, five minutes of charging gets you two hours of talk time.

Get your hands on the new OPPO R7s and do like Tyra (and the contestants from Cycle 22) – work that smize and change your style game with a “#FierceAGram” shot.

OPPO R7s, $599. Available in “Golden” at OPPO Concept Stores (Suntec City Tower 3, #01-627 & 333 Geylang Road) and M1, SingTel and StarHub stores.
