Oppo have released the first teaser image of the Oppo R9 and the design isn’t all that unsurprising.
Oppo have largely focussed on their ‘R’ range of phones for the past 2 years, and are planning to release the most up to date model on the 17th March. The R9 is its name and once launched will sit above the current R7 phones in the Oppo range.
The flagship device is seen in its first teaser today showing a slim gold metal body, white face and button locations. It appears from the image that the power button will be located almost centrally on the right side and a large SIM/SD tray will be located above it.
It’s too early to know the hardware that will be present in the new Oppo R9 but it’s highly likely that we will see the new Oppo tech which was shown off at MWC last month namely Super VOOC and Oppo’s super small OIS unit.
Chinese media are already speculating that the Oppo R9 might even have a Snapdragon 820 chipset, and could replace Oppo’s Find range as a flagship smartphone.
