The ever-evolving smartphone brand, OPPO, is due to release the R9 on 30 April 2016 on local shores. The phone will carry the legacy of stunning design and superb performance that has come to define the popular R series.
The OPPO R9 improves on all of the strengths of previous entries from the R series, featuring powerful hardware, an eye-catching design and OPPO’s patented, industry-leading low-voltage VOOC Flash Charge technology. It also introduces a brand-new technology in OPPO’s arsenal: The Hi-light Camera, which ensures that users can take clear, bright and colourful selfies in any lighting conditions.
A Beauty to See and to Hold
The R9’s measures at 151.8 x 74.3 x 6.6mm, weighing a modest 145g. OPPO’s commitment to innovative design means that the 5.5-inch AMOLED display is accompanied by a bezel that is barely noticeable, measuring only an incredible 1.66mm.
Drawing inspiration from snow-covered mountain ridges, OPPO designers gave the R9 a metallic light-catching edge that shows off the phone’s flowing lines. Not only increasing the style ante, the R9’s edges display a clear understanding of ergonomics by perfectly conforming to the contours of the hand to give the R9 an effortless ‘Comfort Grip’.
Hi-light Camera: You in the Best Light
The phone’s defining feature, the R9’s 16 MP front-facing camera is built to capture the perfect selfie. The device is fitted with OPPO’s new Hi-light Camera, allowing it to capture more light to ensure bright and clear selfies even in low-light conditions. Paired with the new Selfie Panorama feature for group photos and Beautify 4.0, the OPPO R9 is the perfect companion for taking and sharing quality shots on social media platforms.
The 16MP front-facing camera isn’t all just about high-pixel counts. The R9’s unique strength in front-facing shots lies in its custom-built sensor, co-developed with Samsung to arrange pixels to maximize image quality.
The new Selfie Panorama feature, perfect for capturing group photos makes its debut with the R9. With a few turns of the wrist, users can take extra-wide 120-degree front-facing photos, as the R9 seamlessly combines three photos and ensures that the whole party makes it into the shot.
