The 5.5-inch R9 is powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 SoC while the 6-inch R9 Plus uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652, both oferring SuperVOOC fast charging, excellent cameras, and much more.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
