Oppo’s R9s ups the ante

OPPO has made steady progress to move into the ranks of the top five smartphone vendors in the world.

The Chinese phone-maker has made significant strides to capture the market with its focus on design and features.

The latest addition to its line of phones, the R9s has gained some upgrades to its speed and camera features.

Available in gold or rose gold, the R9s features a 5.5inch AMOLED screen that displays bright, crisp images at 1080p resolution.

[Ed Note: Oppo has announced during its official launch in Kuala Lumpur on Jan 5,  that the R9s will retail for RM1,798.]

The R9s gives equal treatment to selfie lovers and traditional photographers by including 16-megapixel Sony sensors on both the front and back cameras.

The rear camera has a wider f/1.7 aperture that allows more light in especially under low light situations. Similarly, selfie as well as wefie lovers will find the front camera’s aperture of f/2.0 good for taking pictures of themselves and friends when the need arises.

Under the hood, you get a Snapdragon 625 CPU with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It is a dual SIM phone which makes it great if you keep separate lines for work and personal use.

In addition, you can expand the memory up to 256GB via the microSD card slot.

In case you were wondering, the R9s still keeps its headphone jack and uses a microUSB port, so you don’t need to buy a new pair of Bluetooth headphones or a USB type C cable for charging.

Oppo also announced that Korean international superstar Lee Min-ho together with Malaysian artist Min Chen will be the new faces of the Oppo R9s.

Oppo Malaysia recently announced a “blind pre-order” activity that ran from Jan 2 to 5, 2017 where fans only needed to deposit a fee of RM100 to when the purchase the phone on Oppo’s website.

The loyal early birds stand a chance to win a mysterious gift worth RM100 when the phone is officially launched on Jan 5.
