Oppo has announced its new top smartphones, R9 and R9 Plus, which although not impressive by external design, integrates quite interesting hardware enough to warrant our attention. Yes, at first glance we could say that we deal with two cloned iPhone, but its housing hides premium components and high-resolution cameras.
Oppo R9 is a new smartphone with AMOLED display of 5.5″ and a Full HD resolution, which is “powered” by an octa-core chipset at 64bit, MediaTek Helio P10. It is equipped with 4GB RAM, 64GB of storage and the option to add a microSD card. Lastly, we deal with a 2,850 mAh battery, the R9 Plus instead comes with a larger display, 6″ octa-core, Snapdragon 652 chipset, and a 4,120 mAh battery.
Both models have the 13 megapixel sensor on the front that can achieve 4K video capture, and 16 megapixels on the front. Oppo R9 and R9 Plus have a lot in common, starting with colors that can be purchased, gold or pink, and ending with almost nonexistent housing – 1,66mm for R9 and 1,76mm for R9 Plus. Compared to the last year launched R7 Plus, there is also a fingerprint reader, but it is located on the front, instead of behind. The devices are dual-SIM, and depending on your preference, you can use the slot for the second SIM to expand the storage capacity with a microSD. The operating system is Android 5.1.1 Lollipop masked with Color OS 3.0 proprietary interface.
Oppo R9 will be sold in China at a price of $430, while R9 Plus will cost $510.
