OPPO R9s: To Feature a New Antenna Design, GeekBench Results

by Habeeb Onawole 7

OPPO’s R9s is scheduled to launch on October 19 and it’ll be the first phone to feature Sony’s new IMX398 camera.

A new leak has revealed that the phone will also have a new antenna design allowing it to achieve an ultra-thin body made of 98.8% metal with a thickness of just 6.58mm.

The leak also adds that the screen of the OPPO R9s will be covered with Gorilla Glass 5 which hopefully someone is going to put to test just like they did with the Galaxy Note 7.

Other details mentioned include a Snapdragon 625 processor, a 3010mAh battery, VOOC fast charging, and an IMX398 camera with a large aperture of f/1.7 protected with sapphire glass.


In addition to that is the mention of OPPO launching a roaming service similar to what Samsung offers with their S Roaming service and Xiaomi’s Mi SIM and Mi Roaming which lets you access the internet without a SIM card.

        i was going off that jerry rig everything witht he note 7’s gorilla glass 5 but i take back what i said seeing it was inconclusive also geekyranjit was saying it scratches easily as well

  • SD 625 is a very fast SoC, should handle anything with no problems(even heavy gaming).
    Hope this phone doesn’t cost 600$ though 😀
