Oppo refreshes the Oppo R1 with specs boost and 4G LTE connectivity

Oppo refreshes the Oppo R1 with specs boost and 4G LTE connectivity
In Malaysia on Wednesday, Oppo introduced the Oppo R1L. This is a refreshed version of the Oppo R1, although many things about the device have not been changed. The handset keeps its 5 inch screen with the 720 x 1280 resolution, but replaces the quad-core MediaTek silicon with a quad-core 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU. The phone continues to offer a metallic body with a svelte 7.1mm thin footprint. There is 1GB of RAM inside, with 16GB of native storage. No microSD slot comes with the model.

The rear camera gets a nice bump up from 8MP to 13MP with an aperture of f/2.0. That should allow for great low-light pictures. The rear snapper uses the same Sony IMX214 Sensor found on the OnePlus One and the Oppo Find 7. You can shoot a 32 second long exposure for fantastic night shots. And there is 120 fps video playback available for super slow motion.

Oppo's Color OS 1.2 runs on top of Android 4.3, and a 2410mAh battery keeps the lights on. The new model does offer 4G LTE connectivity. and is priced at the equivalent of $370 USD.
