Oppo published a teaser on its Weibo account, confirming that the Oppo R9 smartphone exists and could launch soon.
As you can see above, the teaser has a big number “9” in the middle of the text. And loosely translated, it reads, “This time, it is worth and other ‘9’ point. #OPPO New camera phone R9 #.” With that in mind, we could soon see a very nice camera-centric smartphone from Oppo.
Rumors indicate that the R9 will be a beast, not just on the camera front, but on the performance side of things as well. It will allegedly sport a 6-inch 1440 x 2560 display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot.
As far as camera optics go, expect to see a gorgeous 21-megapixel rear sensor and 13-megapixel front camera. It should be equipped with a mighty 3,700mAh battery, and will come out of the box running either a version of Lollipop or Marshmallow. Of course, it will no doubt be running a custom skin from Oppo as well.
We’re also not sure yet if the smartphone will have support for the company’s new proprietary Super VOOC charging technology.
There’s still a lot of “unknown” with this particular device, but it shouldn’t be long now before we hear some official details.
