Oppo R9 and R9 Plus selfie-centric smartphones now official
Oppo is still far behind big names like Huawei, ZTE, or Xiaomi, but they are surely working their way up. Their latest creations are the R9 and R9 Plus handsets, both offering high-end front facing cameras, generous displays, and fast processors.
Oppo R9 has a 5.5-inch full HD display, a MediaTek Helio P10 processor, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The 2850 mAh battery has support for SuperVOOC fast charging, just like the larger R9 Plus. This phablet has a generous 6-inch full HD display, but uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC, complemented by 4 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB internal memory. Its battery has 4120 mAh.
Both handsets come with a front camera made by Samsung that uses a 16 MP ISOCELL sensor and features an aperture of f/2.0. Another common feature is the fingerprint reader nicely placed inside the home button. The Oppo R9 and R9 Plus will both launch only in China, for now, the prices being roughly $430 USD and $510 USD.
