From its unique camera set-up to its exclusive technology, here’s why your next smartphone should be an OPPO R9.
1. The best front-facing camera
In the past, front-facing cameras were essentially an afterthought, paling in comparison to a phone’s rear-facing camera. OPPO knows that this set-up no longer suits the needs of phone users. That’s why the OPPO R9 has a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 16MP front-facing camera with a wide f/2.0 aperture. It’s the first phone manufacturer to do this.
2. It has an exclusive camera sensor
Comparing the camera performance of various phones on the market is a key part of making your decision on which one to buy. With the OPPO R9, you know you’re getting something that no one else has with a top quality camera sensor developed and patented specifically for it, promising top quality images even in low-light settings.
3. It has new selfie features
With that 16MP front-facing camera comes the powerful Beautify 4.0 feature which clears up blemishes automatically, gives you control on colour intensity and tone, and provides you with 10 real time filters. You’ll spend less time editing your photos and more time enjoying the moment. The OPPO R9 also has a new selfie panorama feature; the extra-wide 120-degree frame is perfect for wefies.
4. It has a brand new operating system – ColorOS 3.0
OPPO’s ColorOS has a clean, refreshing new look, but its improvements are not just cosmetic. It significantly reduces the phone’s built-in image library to boost efficiency and cuts app start-up times by 25%.
5. It has the fastest fingerprint sensor on the market
Unlocking your OPPO R9 with your fingerprint takes just 0.2 seconds.
6. It has Avast Antivirus protection
OPPO’s in-built antivirus protection gives you greater personal security especially as phones continue to hold more and more of our important data.
7. It has VOOC Flash Charge
A signature feature of OPPO phones, the latest version of the VOOC system can take your battery from 0 to 75% in just 30 minutes. Its low-voltage approach also reduces temperatures during charging, improving the longevity of the battery.
8. It features 64GB ROM, 4GB RAM and a 5.5” display
The powerful OPPO R9 promises a smooth, fast and flexible user experience.
9. It was a two-year warranty
Phones have a habit of breaking down just as their one-year warranty expires. With OPPO, however, you get greater peace of mind with a two-year warranty.
The OPPO R9 ($649) is available in Gold and Rose Gold (launching early June) at OPPO Concept Stores, all M1, Singtel and StarHub stores, and the OPPO online store.
