Oppo R9S With Dual 16MP Cameras To Be Announced On October 19

Oppo, one of the prominent Chinese smartphone maker has sent out press invites for the launch of Oppo R9s, confirming the October 19 unveil date. Here is everything you need to know about.

The upcoming Oppo R9s is no secret now, as we have witnessed it in quite a few places already – in pamphlets, certification agencies, teasers and of course, rumors. Oppo R9s also features a promising camera setup like its predecessor F1s, embedded in two 16MP, F/1.7 sensors on the front and back.

The teaser image released on Weibo, Oppo shows the letter “S” with the tagline “Share the Moment“. Indicating that the Oppo R9s will be another camera-centric smartphone, like the original version. With that said, the obtained 3C certification of China also mentioned about Oppo’s r9s launching soon and finally gets a release date today.


It’s already been the subject of a TV spot airing in China and the next step followed by an invitation for the launch event, scheduled to be held on 19th October 2016. Apparently, the smartphone’s camera base will be using the new Sony-made IMX398 sensor. About that, the fact on top of the obvious is 98 more than IM300 imagery Sony uses in its own high-end Xperia range. Sources states that the sensor is of 16MP dual-pixel affair (found inside Samsung Galaxy S7 12MP camera setup). Lens aperture is also said to match the Samsung flagship at f/1.7.


It seems Oppo R9S to come equipped with the 3010mAh battery package, includes 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM and Snapdragon 625 as CPU. This device which is all set to go live on Oct. 19 will be equipped with a USB Type-C port and more.


Alongside the Oppo R9S, there’s still another model in the live scene, dubbed R9s Plus and isn’t mentioned on the invites thereafter. Could definitely mean one of two things arriving. Either the R9S and R9s Plus will be announced at different points in time and obviously, differs in more than just screen size, or quite the opposite. No other details regarding the price and availability has thrown as far. The Oppo R9s won’t make a global debut anyway, but is known for selling its devices in both Asia and Europe.
