OPPO has confirmed that it will launch its OPPO R9 flagship at an event in China on March 17. The company has been teasing the phone’s release for the past few weeks and the latest teaser reveals some more design aspect of the device.
The company confirmed that the phone will come with curved corners as seen in the image above. The teaser further reveals the power and SIM card slots will be located on the right side of the phone. Also, we can confirm that the phone will come in a silver colored variant.
But this is not the only glimpse of the device we have got till now. We actually got to see both, the OPPO R9 and the R9 Plus at their TENAA listings a few days back. Apart from the design, the certification also revealed the specs of the devices.
The OPPO R9 features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080p resolution. The OPPO R9 Plus is a larger sized version of the R9, with a 6-inch display. Despite being from the same series, the R9 comes with an octa-core chip clocked at 1.95GHZ probably the Helio X10 and the R9 Plus features a 1.8GHz octa-core chip which could be from the Snapdragon 600 series. But on the memory side, both the devices are quite strong. Both come with 4GB RAM and then there are 32GB and 64GB internal storages on the R9 and R9 Plus respectively.
There will be a 16MP shooter on both the models with dual LED flash. OPPO R9 is slimmer featuring a 6.5mm body and because of this, it only comes with a 2850mAh battery. On the other hand, the R9 Plus features a much larger 4120mAh battery, thanks to its 7.4mm body.
Don’t expect these phones to retail for cheap. So, they could be somewhere between $300 to $400 or even more. But we can only get the pricing confirmed after OPPO officially announces it on March 17.
