OPPO expected to launch its new R9s handset at Oct. 19 event in Shanghai
Chinese OEM OPPO is sending out press invites to the regional media for an event scheduled to be held by the company in Shanghai on October 19.
At the forthcoming event, OPPO is expected to unveil its new Android-powered smartphone -- the OPPO R9s -- for the Chinese market. The new OPPO handset was sighted on TENAA a couple of months back; and images of the device were also leaked online last week.
Though there has been no official disclosure by OPPO about the expected pricing and availability details of the new R9s handset, it is speculated that the device will likely be available in China soon, since a TV commercial of the handset is already running in the country.
Some of the key features of the upcoming OPPO R9s handset reportedly include 5.5-inch full HD 1080 pixel display; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor; 4GB of RAM; 64GB of onboard storage capacity; and a 16-megapixel and 13-megapixel camera combo.
In addition, the R9s handset will also come with OPPO SmartSensor and a Sony IMX398 camera sensor, both of which will be used for image stabilization; thereby making the R9s an imaging-centric handset.
