Oppo made it official. Event invitations point to October 19th as the start of its R9s smartphone, successor to the successful Oppo 9R. There might even be a Plus-version and both are said to feature a new Sony IMX-sensor.

Oppo has sent out invitations for a press event in Shanghai, China on October 19th and is expected to unveil the R9s, successor to the R9 midrange device. This year, Oppo might also add a Plus version similar to Apple and Xiaomi. So far it is not known if the R9s Plus will have a different feature set than the smaller R9s.

Star of the evening will be Sony's new image sensor named IMX 398 which will have it debut in the Oppo R9s and is said to offer similar features to the camera in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy Note 7: an aperture of F/1.7 and dual-pixel support. Contrary to the Samsung devices, which have 12 megapixel sensors, the IMX 398 in the Oppo R9s will be a 16 megapixel sensor. With a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage the Oppo R9s and its bigger brother will be upper midrange devices. No pricing is available as of yet.
