OPPO R15 recently filtered into the rumour mill when a teaser of the device was released. The major stand out feature on the teaser was the display notch which the device packs similar to that of iPhone X. The design has turned out to be real as two promotional videos for the OPPO R15 have been spotted on Tencent. We have converted the video to Youtube videos so you can view them easily from here.
OPPO is one of the numerous Chinese OEMs that are never shy of copying Apple’s design, in the past and this time around the iPhone X is the subject of such copycat. Since the iPhone X is one of the most popular phones you’ll find around, it is not a surprise. The two videos seem to be for the OPPO R15 and OPPO R15 Dream Mirror Edition flagships but they both basically look the same. The company confirmed the names of the new models a few days back with a teaser image which comes with the display notch design. That is now reaffirmed with the outage of these videos. Here’s one of the promotional videos.
Apart from the notch design, the OPPO R15 is expected to feature an advanced facial recognition tech but the video didn’t give us a clue of any of the models’ specs. The video only teases the presence of artificial intelligence (AI) technology on the device. The facial recognition could be similar to what Apple does, unlike other software-based recognition technologies, but we can’t be sure at the moment. Other rumoured features include gesture enabled virtual home button, vertically stacked dual cameras, and Color OS 4.0 with Android 8.1 Oreo. There’s also speculation that the new R15 models will feature the upcoming Snapdragon 670 chipset, but as of now, there’s no confirmation about the same. We also don’t know when the R15 would go official but we expect that to happen in no distant time. Check out the second video below.
