Oppo to present new R9 smartphone on March 17

The Chinese smartphone maker Oppo will present the new R9 smartphone at an event on March 19. Previously it was thought that the device would be a high-end smartphone but now it turns out that it will be just a mid-range handset.

Thanks to its TENAA certification we now know the tech specs of the R9 – the smartphone will come with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display that works at Full HD resolution and will have an 8-core processor at 1.95 GHz, likely the MediaTek Helio X10. The R9 will offer 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, a 16 MP rear camera, a fingerprint sensor and a 2850 mAh battery that supports quick charging. All this hardware will be housed inside a metallic chassis.

Along with the R9 Oppo will unveil a larger version of the same device called Oppo R9 Plus. This smartphone will have a 6-inch AMOLED display and an 8-core processor at 1.8 GHz, likely a Snapdragon 600+ chip. The rest of the specs include 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory, a 16 MP rear camera and a 4120 mAh battery that supports quick charging. This one will also have a metallic chassis.

Both smartphones will be unveiled on March 17. They are expected to sell for around USD 400-500 in the United States.
