OPPO today teased its upcoming R9 camera-focused smartphone. Even though OPPO did not reveal the announcement date, it just said that the event will be scheduled in the Spring, which starts in March. The teaser hints at a sleek metal body and SIM slot on the right side of the phone. OPPO unveiled the R7 and R7 Plus smartphones back in May last year. It is skipping the R8 and directly moving to the R9.
According to leaked images from last week, OPPO will introduce R9 and R9 Plus smartphones at the event with Android 6.0-based Color OS, fingerprint sensor on the home button, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Both the smartphones are likely to come with its latest VOOC Super Flash Charge technology.
The Oppo R9 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, 16-megapixel rear camera, 13-megapixel front-facing camera and 2850mAh battery, while the Oppo R9 Plus is expected to come with a 6-inch 1080p screen, 16-megapixel front and rear cameras and 4120mAh battery.
According to earlier rumors, the OPPO R9 and R9 Plus smartphone are expected to be powered by either Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor or Deca-Core MediaTek Helio 20 SoC. Both these smartphones are expected to be announced on March 17th.
