Last week, OPPO announced it was going to release the R9s in green. The phone, called the OPPO R9s Fresh Green Limited Edition is now official and will be available for purchase starting on the 27th of March.
OPPO says the new color was inspired by its popularity during the International Fashion Week Show and the Grammy Awards. Fellow Chinese manufacturer, Huawei also has its latest flagship, the P10 available in the same color variant.
OPPO says the R9s Fresh Green Limited Edition retains the same design language present on the other color variants. Its metal body has undergone an anodic oxidation process and is also scratch and fingerprint resistant.
The R9s Fresh Green Limited Edition still comes with a 5.5*inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, and is powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor. There is a 16MP sensor on the rear and another one up front. Under the hood is a 3010mAh battery.
OPPO says the phone will go on sale on March 27 for the same ¥2799 ($406) price as the other color variants. Since this is a limited edition, expect it to be out of stock in a short while.
The new color variant brings the total number to five now. Early this year, OPPO released a new year special edition variant that is coated in Red in addition to the gold, rose gold, and black versions.
