Oppo have been doing an outstanding job of delivering quality phones at an affordable price for a couple of years now, their solid feeling phones look the part and perform admirably (particularly so when the price point is taken into consideration) and on October 19th a new addition is joining the family – the R9s.
There’s been plenty of information about the R9s for a while now, hell… Oppo have had a commercial leaked!
So it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that the Chinese manufacturer has sent out invites to a number of media outlets for the launch of the device on October 19th, apparently with little other information.
One of the points that has impressed me with the Oppo devices I’ve reviewed is their camera responsiveness and the quality of picture that they create. There’s rumour that it may in fact have a Sony manufactured sensor and a f/1.7 aperture which will make it very capable in low light conditions. Further specs according to IT Home it is rumoured to have an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, 3010mAh battery, 64GB storage, 4GB memory and a personal favourite of mine – support VOOC fast charge.
On paper, its an impressive showing. We have already reached out to Oppo in Australia for more information. They have confirmed that the R9s is coming to Australia with an uncertain date of availability at this time, we will get hands on with a review unit when the time is right.
Based on the current market, what is the price point you’d like to see the R9s launch in Australia at?
