Prominent Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has sent out press invites confirming that its upcoming Oppo R9s smartphone will be announced on October 19 in Shanghai. The handset has hardly been shrouded in secrecy, for it's already the subject of a TV spot airing in China
. We also know what constitutes most of its spec sheet, which paints a picture of an upper mid-range smartphone.
The Oppo R9s is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, along with a 3010mAh battery (an upgrade from the 2580mAh unit in the Oppo R9) with VOOC fast charging technology.
Moreover, the Oppo R9s also features a promising camera setup, comprised of two 16MP, F1.7 cameras on the front and back. Mind you, this bit might have been lost in translation, although a 16MP rear camera is a sure bet, as evidenced by previous leaks. Also, the R9s will be among the first smartphones equipped with the new Sony IMX398 camera sensor. While details on it are not available, an upgraded Sony camera sensor is always good news, especially if the smartphone is optimized to take full advantage of it.
The Oppo R9s probably won't make a global debut, but Oppo is known for selling its devices in both Asia and Europe, so European users might eventually get to play with the metal-bodied handset.
