Oppo R9 leaks look a lot like another iPhone 6S wannabe

China’s love affair with the iPhone has had a lasting impression in phone design, and we are not surprised to see the Oppo R9 with a design near identical to the iPhone 6S Plus.

The news we are really waiting for is the Oppo Find 9 flagship phone. It’s been a long time since the Find 7 launched, and we really expect Oppo to release a new powerhouse in the coming months, but this isn’t it.

Chinese media are claiming that this is an early look at the all alloy construction of the Oppo R9. The R9 would be the big brother of the R7 range, which itself replaced the slender Oppo R5.

The all metal body will use a nano molding process that can ensure better integrity when casting complex cases like this and means extremely round corners and sides, which also go some way to the overall iPhone appearance of the phone.

From industry sources the Oppo R9 is rumoured to come with an ultra-sonic fingerprint scanner, Snapdragon 620/Mediatek Helio X20 and 3GB RAM.

    Lots of hype and hope into this one…. But I don’t buy that idea. I would like to see more original designs, colors, shapes… Etc etc etc

    The only thing iPhone esque are the white antenna lines. If it didn’t have those white lines it would be a natural progression of a design they have used dating back to R1.

    China has an iPhone inferiority complex. Even Oppo is not immune to it.

    Will it have the SD 620 or 820? If it does have the 620 it will be a decidedly mid-range device, which they already have plenty of. And they already price them in the higher end of what mid-range phones are priced at. Seems like they are competing with HTC to see who makes the highest priced mid-range phones on the market.

    Judging by the audio jack, it looks extremely thin.
