by Joe 15

Along with the OPPO R9S smartphone, the company also announced the OPPO R9S Plus at the conference in China this evening. As the name suggests, this particular model will be the update to the larger phablet-sized OPPO R9 Plus that was released earlier this year. The new model comes with some great upgrades but retains the essence of the device, a powerful enough processor, great camera and a large size ideal to fulfill entertainment needs.

The company has made sure that the OPPO R9S Plus is updated in the right areas. First of all, in the processor department, the phone comes with the brand new Snapdragon 653 chipset. This new chip is 10% better in terms of performance as compared to the previous generation SD652 chipset and is clocked at 1.95GHz. Even in the memory department, the company has upgraded the RAM on board to 6GB, bringing the phone at level with other flagship devices. For ROM, you get 64GB. Like the R9S, you have a MicroSD slot expandable up to 128GB.

    i knew it was going to be expensive but come one couldnt they have dropped the 6gbram to 3 or 4 and make it slightly cheaper resellers will sell this for 650 or more!!

    • Jh1

      And it will still post great sales….go figure. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great phone, but with so many great devices now available for $400 or less, oppo devices have no appeal for me.

    • Rob

      My thoughts exactly, the price has killed it completely for me, can buy the vivo xplay 5s cheaper! Waiting on the Huawei mate 9 now and I would hazard a guess it will be cheaper than this.

      • Assefa Hanson

        usual you can be like: “well if i buy it a few months later the price will drop” noooooooooope not for oppo

      • Assefa Hanson

        so uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh rob axon 7 max then?? maybe? possibly? kind of ly? might be? probably? a chance? hopefully??

        • Rob

          No interest in the axon. I’m looking at either the mate 9 or the 360 q5 plus, probably the latter as it will be cheaper and it’s available now!

          • Muhammad Yasir

            where exactly will you buy the 360 q5 Plus ?!

            are there any sites (EXCEPT LIAOW) selling it ?

          • Rob

            There is fastcardtech that is the cheapest and allows PayPal but there’s lots of negative reviews online (like there is With all Chinese resellers) $383 6gb or $320 4gb. Not sure extra 2gb is worth the price hike though. There are 4 sellers on aliexpress also selling them,i like the buyer protection on Ali but don’t like the way they force u to buy insurance on electrics now as that bumps the price up although it’s still a lot cheaper than liaow! Haven’t seen anywhere else selling it to international customers though.

    • NextHype

      Why going for a reseller when there is an official international internet store with official price ?

      • Assefa Hanson

        for oppo?

        • NextHype

          Yep. it’s called oppostyle.
          They’re audited atm and have suspended their services but it may go online soon with the new R9S.

          BTW i’m not sure they’re 100% official, as Oppo website only lists Amazon as an official dealer for Europe.

  • Plus

    If only and only if they use snapdragon 653 for standard version and 821 for Plus version…

    • Muhammad Yasir

      reason why people hate oppo !

  • SohyeFan729

    if this had 821 best phone of the year, honestly…

  • Muhammad Yasir

    too expensive
