Oppo have officially announced their latest Android Smartphone the R9s, and it will be headed to Australia soon. We’re not sure how but let’s check out the official specs of the device. The R9s is a 5.5″ FHD device backed up by a Snapdragon 625 paired with 4GB of Ram and 64GB of internal storage. Oppo seems to be focusing on the Sony IMX398 16MP front and rear facing sensors and new ‘striped antenna design’.
The device is very similar to other Oppo designs, which in the increasingly homogeneous smartphone design landscape is becoming less distinctive with all metal construction, rounded edges and the typical glass slab panel. I’m sure many people will draw comparisons to other devices on the market but at this stage, I think they are all starting to look alike.
Check out the full specs below.

Oppo have really pushed the quality of the dual 16MP sensors with the R9s touting both focusing and image capture speed. If Oppo deliver on their promise we may just have seen the arrival of the first affordable great camera experience on Android and that’s a big deal. With Australia as a Tier 1 release market for the new device we expect to be getting more details on pricing and availability soon.
We will of course, be giving the Oppo R9s the full review treatment as soon as we can get our hands on one.
