Oppo has been teasing a new antenna design for its latest smartphone, the R9s on their launch website. The company is planning to release the smartphone on October, the 19th.

Just a few more days left before Oppo will release a successor to the successful R9 midrange phone. Apart from previously leaked information about the new 16 megapixel Sony IMX 398 sensor that will sport an aperture of F/1.7 and fast "dual-core" autofocus to better capture fast moving objects, there was speculation about a new antenna design, which the company has now officially acknowledged by teasing it on their R9s launch website. New pictures werde published that show three small horizontal bars below the back camera lens instead of the usual thick antenna line. The R9s is said to have a 16 megapixel front camera as well according to a AnTuTu benchmark listing that also mentions a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The display, which will be 5.5 inch in size, will have Full-HD resolution. Android 6.0.1 will be preinstalled.
