OPPO is among the top three phone makers in China presently in terms of smartphone shipments and still jostle for the top 5 spot in the global market. The company recently went official with OPPO R15 and R15 Dream Mirror Edition. Both new smartphones went on sale for the first time on April 1 and the official information from the BKK-owned OPPO indicates that the R15 has created a new sales record for the company in China.
A perusal of the opening day sales figures on the Jingdong, Tmall, and Suning showed a record sales exceeding that of the R11. However, we are not privy to the sales figures so as to make our independent analysis and comparison. OPPO’s models have always enjoyed good sales outing and the R15 seems not to be an exception. The trend has been a long streak right from the time of the OPPO R9. In January 2017, just two months after the R9S was released, OPPO revealed that it had sold almost 3 million units in China alone. The model was also crowned by Sino research as the top selling smartphone by a Chinese manufacturer. The first day sale of the R9s on Jingdong was broken by the R11 in just 40 minutes and the model did go on to record stunning feats in terms of sales volumes. That record may likely be shattered by the R15 considering its new design and amazing hardware lineup.
As a reminder, the OPPO R11 features a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage on the topmost variant. The device pack a 3,450mAh battery with support for VOOC flash charge. The Dream Mirror edition is powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset and comes in a Red and Ceramic Black variants. Another major feature of the R11 models is the use of a new 16MP Sony IMX519 sensor as its main camera sensor at the rear.
