Oppo reveals the R819, 4.7 inch 720p display in a 7.3mm thin and 110g light body


Oppo, the Chinese company well known for its flagship product – the Oppo Find 5, has just revealed the latest product in its portfolio, the R819. The Oppo R819 comes with a stunningly svelte frame, measuring just 7.3mm in thickness and weighing 110g in weight. Although this is thicker than the company’s own 6.65mm Finder smartphone, it is still a considerable achievement due to all the modern specs the device boasts. It has a 4.7 inch 1280×720 resolution IPS screen that promises to have really good viewing angles thanks OGS(One glass solution). Other specs are pretty normal, which includes a 8 megapixel camera and a MediaTek MT6589 Quad Core processor. It runs on Android 4.2.1 JellyBean but can run Oppo’s own Color ROM as well as the stock Android ROM thanks to the unlocked bootloader out of the box.


Here are the complete specs of the device –

  • 4.7 inch 1280X720 IPS LCD with OGS technology
  • 1.2 GHz MediaTek MT6589 Quad Core processor with 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 Megapixel Sony EXMOR BSI sensor with f2.0 aperture lens and a dedicated ISP, 2 MP front camera
  • 16 GB ROM, no micro SD card slot
  • Dual SIM (GSM), WiFi, WiFi Display, DLNA, FM Radio
  • 2000 mAH Battery
  • Android 4.2.1 Jellybean

As you can see above, this seems to be Oppo’s way of delivering a “mini” device, while retaining all the goodness that Oppo stands for. The thickness and weight is a crazy engineering achievement for the company, but the specifications seem rather mid range. But on that note, we hope that the price(which has not been revealed) is way lesser, especially since the Find 5’s pricing was so great already. The device is expected to ship early September and will be available for global shipping on the company’s website.

That said, stay tuned to the blog, we have some exclusive stuff lined up!
