OPPO has officially launched its premium mid-range smartphones in Taiwan. The OPPO R15 was launched alongside the R15 Dream Mirror Edition which is also known as R15 Pro. The models come with a rather higher pricing than the prices it adopted in China. That is NT$15,990 (~3,400 yuan) for the R15 while the R15 Pro comes with a price tag of NT$18,990 (4,100 yuan). Whereas the R15 launched in China with a price tag of 2,999 Yuan (`$473) and 3,299 Yuan (`$520) for the R15 Pro.
Basically, the specifications of both models are the same with the China edition. The OPPOR15 Pro tries to tread in flagship territory while skipping a number of smaller features consumers will likely overlook. Both the R15 and R15 Pro features a 6.28-inch OLED Super View Full-Screen display with a notch at the top. It offers a Full HD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9 as well as a screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent.
The R15 Pro packs a Snapdragon 660 chipset backed by 6GB of RAM and it includes 128 GB of storage which can be expanded up to 256GB more via microSD card. The premium smartphone gets its juice from a 3,400mAh with support for VOOC fast charging technology. Furthermore, the R15 Pro dual camera setup includes a 16-megapixel Sony IMX519 sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary sensor. The front-facing camera is a 20-megapixel sensor.
On the other hand, the R15 is powered by the newly announced MediaTek Helio P60 paired with 6 GB of RAM. It is also equipped with 128 GB of storage expandable to 256GB via microSD. Its external storage slot supports up to 256 GB of microSD card. The R15 battery is slightly bumped up to 3,450mAh battery with VOOC fast charging. However, the dual rear cameras are slightly different, and it includes a 16-megapixel Sony IMX519 sensor + 5-megapixel secondary sensor. The front-facing camera is a 20-megapixel sensor.
Both models run on Color OS 5.0-flavored Android 8.1 Oreo. Both models equally pack a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Other features include an IP67 dust and water resistance and NFC functionality.
The OPPO R15 is available in Snow White, Star Purple, and Red colour variants while the R15 Pro will be available in Red and Purple colours. Both models will go on sale in Taiwan from June 1.
