OPPO has officially disclosed that along side the sapphire glass-protected Sony IMX398 sensor, the R9S camera would use an f1.7 large aperture which would allow more light through it, as against the usual f2.2 aperture that is found on most camera. this had earlier been rumored but it is now confirmed and this aperture size comes in handy in dark or low light conditions as it increases the amount of light that passes through bringing brighter and clearer image with less noise. In addition to the f1.7 aperture, the R9S had earlier been revealed to come with full-pixel dual-core auto focus which is said to accelerate focusing speed and provide more accuracy.
