OPPO R9s Widens Photography Fanbase with Improved 16MP Rear Camera
The new OPPO R9s is not available yet in India but we managed to get the phone in Malaysia. For a mid range phone, the OPPO R9s not only looks premium in full metallic but also lightweight at just around 147 g with 6.6 mm thickness. It boasts a 16MP rear camera enhanced with Sony IMX398 sensor for clearer shots as well as another 16MP front camera with OPPO's Beautify 4.0 technology for better selfies.
The OPPO R9s also comes built in with OPPO's VOOC flash charging technology which is claimed to charge 4x faster than conventional chargers.
Our phone comes in beautiful Gold together with earphones, Micro USB cable, USB charger, SIM ejector tool, instruction manuals, and casing. The USB charger is VOOC Flash Charge enabled with LED status indicator which supplies the OPPO R9s with 20 watts (5 volts @ 4.0 amps) of fast charging.
The OPPO R9s which runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 with Qualcomm MSM8953 Octa-core processor (4GB RAM) shows off its 5.5 inch full HD (1920 x 1080) AMOLED touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
On one side of the OPPO R9s, we could see two distinct volume buttons while the other side shows a power button and dual-SIM hybrid card slot which only allows a SIM 2 or microSD card to be inserted in its 2nd slot. Up to 256GB microSD storage can be added on to the phone's built in 64GB storage.
At the bottom, there's a micro-B USB port as well as speakers and a 3.5 mm audio jack. Also available is a fingerprint scanner just below the screen.
The OPPO R9s comes with a 3010 mAh Li-polymer non-removable battery, and supports connectivity such as 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, FM radio, and high-speed LTE (4G) data networks.
In upcoming reviews we will test the OPPO R9s to see how well it performs with other devices.
