Oppo R9s was just announced this month. If you are looking for a great phone with affordable price range, this might just be the one. The R9s is packed with a 16MP rear camera, extra-wide f/1.7 aperture, coupled with the new Dual PDAF technology. OPPO is always well known for its front and back camera and many tout it as the selfie phone. I guess now they are really focused on the rear camera to enable users to capture clear photos anytime and anywhere. Also, an add on is the OPPO’s VOOC Flash charge for speed charging, knowing that we are always in a rush right. Check out the full specs here.
Fans of Lee Min Ho would be glad to know that he is the new ambassador for OPPO R9s together with Malaysian actress Min Chen.
As I mentioned the phone is quite affordable at only RM1798. I like the fact that it is using the all-new Sony IMX398 sensor. This is actually a customised 1/2.8 inch sensor that Sony and OPPO developed together. I can trust Sony’s image capturing capability for sure. This sensor and an extra-wide f/1.7 aperture is able to capture 40% more light that previous generations. You can expect phenomenal focusing speed, noise reduction and low-light performance which results in breathtakingly clear and beautiful images in seconds.
There’s also the Dual PDAF Technology which is an increase by 100% the area of the sensor’s pixel array. The body of the R9s is very stylish with six-string design antenna lines. The metallic body comes in Gold and Rose Gold. The body is equipped with 98.9% metal, with a screen-to-body ratio of 72.9% making its visual a subtle, refined and distinguished one and a great superb signal to boot.
The R9s internals are great too, with a Qualcomm octa-core processor, 4GN RAM and 64GB ROM, and cruises seamlessly on ColorOS 3.0(based on Android 6.0). The storage is good with 64GN onboard and can be expanded with an addtional 128GB so you don’t have to worry about running out of space with the many crystal clear photos.
The R9s also has fingerprint reader with a fast 0.2s touch, so that is great for those on the move. I like how it is packed with 3010mAh battery, so ensuring I don’t have to run out of battery so quickly.
