OPPO R15 is already confirmed by the numerous teasers and leaked promotional material as being in existence. It is only a matter of time before the device will be launched. The major stand out feature on the device as seen on the several leaked photos and videos is the display notch which the device packs similar to that of iPhone X. That design style has again been reaffirmed by these newly leaked photos of the device which was spotted in the hands of an unidentified user.
The OPPO R15 real machine was spotted while in use inside a Shenzhen subway train and it gives us a closer look at the front design. Except the pictures are fake, which is unlikely, the R15 looks more bezel-less than what we could scoop from the leaked renders. The device has a really high screen-to-body ratio which could be up to 98% by our own analysis. The selfie camera can be seen on the notch which houses not just the camera but also the front speaker. The notification bar seems to extend downwards and isn’t just occupying the sides of the display notch.
Apart from the notch design, the OPPO R15 is expected to feature an advanced facial recognition tech. 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. The size of the device points at a 6.0-inch Full-View display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device is also expected to come with artificial intelligence (AI) technology, gesture-enabled virtual home button, vertically stacked dual rear cameras, and Color OS 4.0based on Android 8.1 Oreo. There’s also speculation that the new R15 models will feature the upcoming Snapdragon 670 chipset, while a recent rumour tips the device to pack an Helio P60 chipset. There is no word yet on when the device would be launched but we expect OPPO to roll out invitation posters and send out press invites to the R15 launch event soon.
