Oppo R9 is a new camera-focused smartphone which many selfie takers are sure going to fall in love with. The device packs a one-of-its-kind sturdy front-facing camera while also boasting a huge Full HD display, an octa-core processor, plenty RAM and a fingerprint sensor.
Design and Display
Due respect to Oppo; it may be argued that this new handset from it is another iPhone clone.
The Oppo R9 looks significantly like an iPhone 6S. It flaunts an appealing unibody design with a chassis made entirely of metal.
Oppo R9 parades an ultra-slim profile coming in at a thickness of just 6.6 millimetres.
It crams in a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with Full HD (1080p) resolution for awesome clarity and immersive content viewing. The touchscreen has very thin bezels, which Oppo says measures just 1.66 millimetres.
The main talking point on the Oppo R9 is what it has to offer on the camera front. The R9 comes with an awe-inspiring 16-megapixel selfie shooter boasting an f/2.0 aperture and a 78.1-degree wide angle lens for eye-catching shots.
This impressive front-facing camera is accompanied by a 13-megapixel rear camera with a 5-element lens, LED flash, and phase detection autofocus.
Hardware and Software
Under the hood, the Oppo R9 packs an octa-core MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 processor, with four Cortex-A53 cores running at 2 GHz and another four at 1.0 GHz.
This powerful CPU is backed by abundant 4 GB of RAM for zippy performance and awesome responsiveness.
The Oppo R9 phablet offers highly generous 64 GB of onboard storage, expandable by up to 128 GB using a microSD card.
Its maker’s ColorOS 3.0 software, which is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, runs the show.

The juicer is backed by incredibly fast VOOC flash charge technology said to give two hours of talk time in just five minutes of charging.
The dual-SIM phablet is fitted with a fingerprint scanner below its display, as against the rear-mounting preference in earlier Oppo R series devices.
