After a few months of waiting, since its October release, the Oppo R9s finally launched in the Australian market, where it’s available for pre-ordering, at AUD 600, which roughly translates to $450.
The handset is available through JB Hi-Fi, Optus and Woolworths Mobile. Also, Vodafone and Virgin mobile are offering the handset as well. As for the colors it’s available in, you can opt for Black and White, as well as Red, but the latter is available just for select markets, like China, Singapore or Taiwan.
Spec-wise, the Oppo R9s comes with a 5.5″ AMOLED display and a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, covered by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5. Since we’re talking about a mid-range model, the Snapdragon 625 chip under the hood, with eight Cortex-A53 cores running at 2.0 GHz, doesn’t come as a surprise.
The processor is aided by an Adreno 506 GPU, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, with the possibility of expanding this with up to 256 GB, thanks to the presence of a microSD card slot.
In terms of camera, the R9s features a 16 MP snapper on the back, with f/1.7 aperture, phase detection auto focus and an LED flash, while on the front, we’re looking at another 16 MP sensor, but this time with an f/2.0 aperture.
The spec sheet continues with a fingerprint scanner on the front, 3,010 mAh battery, non-removable, with Fast Charging support and Android 6.0.1 on top, customized with the manufacturer’s own interface.
Currently, there aren’t any details about the Oppo R9s hitting other markets, besides the ones mentioned above.
