Oppo R9 and Oppo R9+ specifications revealed ahead of launch


oppo r9 tenna leak

Oppo have just received official network licensing for the Oppo R9 and Oppo P9+, phones that are not set for launch until later this month. Check out the details.

So it might not be the Find 9 that we were hoping for, but Oppo will release the Oppo R9, and R9+ later this month. The first surprise is that there are two versions of the phone, when previously it was thought only 1 phone would launch.

The next surprise is that the Oppo R9 and Oppo R9+ have a physical home button, or at least a front positing fingerprint scanner. This move would help differentiate the Oppo design to the Vivo’s very similar looking models,

So with both phones seen in the wilds of the TENAA database what specification details do they both have?

Oppo R9 Specifications

Well the regular Oppo R9 is going to be a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 (OLED) phone with unknown 1.95Ghz chipset (A Qualcomm unit of some sort), 4GB RAM, 32GB memory and front and rear 16 mega-pixel cameras. Dimensions for the Oppo R9 are 151.8 × 74.3 × 6.5mm at a weight of 145g.

Oppo R9+ Specifications

oppo r9+ tenna leak

The bigger brother Oppo R9+ has a 6-inch AMOLED FHD display and slightly less powerful 1.8Ghz chipset, the same 4GB RAM but a higher 64GB internal memory. The camera specs are the same too but obviously the phone is larger at 163 × 80.8 × 7.4mm with a heavier weight of 185g (which also suggest a much larger battery).

The TENAA leaks also confirm that both phones will be able to accept a 128GB SD card, and we can be sure that both models will feature SUPER VOOC and Oppo’s latest OIS feature, both techs were launched at MWC.

So those are the latest phones from Oppo. What do you make of those specs and the designs? Also, if you have an opinion on front or rear fingerprint scanners take part in our poll here.

    This is looking pretty good, although not sure why the larger model has a lower clocked CPU. I’m guessing it will be the sd652 and will feature the usual oppo very high price.

    • March 3, 2016

      I’m interested in the cameras. Oppo have rebranded themselves as a camera phone company, so I’m hoping this is going to be special

        How is Color Os these days? Last time I used was a while ago and it wasn’t the best.

      Unless it says octacore somewhere, Could be the underclocked version of SD820, thats used in the Xiaomi Mi5 base model.

  2. March 3, 2016

    Always same story (looks like “youknowwhichfruit”). After weeks of searching and thinking I decided to wait for lg g5 price and will choose between v10 & g5. Ad acta.

    • March 3, 2016

      Look like Meizu/Samusng and Apple had a baby

      • March 3, 2016

        Exactly. Not saying it’s not good looking, but I don’t understand why they had to adopt layout from another brands (and they showed they can do something that nobody else did before – like N3). I touched R7s, it was a nice piece (even if I experienced huge “echo” during calls). But they will kill it with a price again I guess.

      LG G5? This phone is a joke, one of the worst designed phones I have ever seen in this price segement…600€ with bezels bigger than elephone has them. V10’s back was also kinda ugly, but the G4 was really nice designed, I wonder why they took a step back designwise.

      • March 3, 2016

        You know, 100 people – 100 opinions. I agree that the back of G5 isn’t Miss Universe, but it can be “supressed” by some nice case 🙂 And about the price – for me it’s not bad (as I can use 250e sale at one huge online store in my country). So at the end it’s gonna be less than paying for some new china phone (as this store only sells some Xiaomis and Elephones).

        • Mi-fan
          March 3, 2016

          Wait your saying you’ll get it for 450€ off contract?

          • March 3, 2016

            Whatever the price is (it’s gonna be more than 600e here i guess), so – 250e, yes.

            • Mi-fan
              March 3, 2016

              Oh yeah right, my bad. Good price although I like the S7 better. I’m still waiting for the Mi Note 2 to release, as I am happy with my 5.7″ Note Pro, I’ll probalby skip the Mi5 because of the small screen.

            • Mi-fan
              March 4, 2016

              Well there will be a Mi Note 2 with possible curved display

        • March 3, 2016

          I tried the G5 at MWC. My impressions are
          1) Its very cool looking and a great concept
          2) Camera isn’t great. There are better cameras on Chinese phones, and this was using it in a well lit expo hall.
          3) Audio with the BO pod and BO headphones was as good as the Vivo X6 Plus and Meizu HD50 I had with me.

          I quite like LG phones, but the G5 is just a gimmick

          • March 3, 2016

            Hmm, from what I’ve heard the camera at MWC wasn’t making great pics because that FW wasn’t final yet. LG said it’s gonna be some sw improvements when it gets to the market. I will decide between those two models (I remember that somebody here kept saying that SoC 808 is “deffective” but I wasn’t able to find any reliable info about that). And about sound, I was expecting it to be badass quality (with BO module), so my head could assplode. Kinda disapointed with what you just said :/

    • Panagiotis Vaidomarkakis
      March 3, 2016

      I have the same thought!I believe that the lg v10 has the specs that I want(radio,sd card,unique design) and it is worth waiting to buy it when it will go 300-350€!(I don’t like g5 at all as you see)

      • March 3, 2016

        And removable battery is nice bonus (together with best camera).

      • realjjj
        March 3, 2016

        Stay away from anything with SD810/808, just don’t. Any SoC is better than that and this year there many alternatives. SD820 and 820Lite, , Kirin 950/955, Exynos 8890, Mediatek Helio X20, SD652/650 and more .
        Even with a SD650 you get better CPU and GPU than with that SD808.

        • March 3, 2016

          Could you elaborate on why 808 is so bad, pls? I am not an astrophysicist, so I’m not gonna use phone for blackohles simulations. I am pretty sure that 808 can perfectly handle my 5 games (fifa,nhl,realracing,score and score hero), together with Sygic and common apps like browser, poweramp, whatsapp & viber…

          • realjjj
            March 3, 2016

            You certainly aren’t an astrophysicist. You don’t need much so paying a lot for a broken chip is fine, even when you can do much better?
            It’s like asking why not buy a broken car when you’ll be using a bicycle anyway.
            A reasonable consumer tries to make informed and rational purchases. In your case, if your needs are so low, why buy a high end device (LG G5) instead of a 150$ phone that is sufficient for your needs? Why waste hundreds of dollars if your needs are very limited. Even worse, why push others to waste money on a device that is even lower value?

            • March 3, 2016

              But I asked you to tell me why is SoC 808 so “low-end”, so “deffective”. What makes you think it’s “broken”?

              You’re not going to get an answer.
              I’ve made the same question many times already.

              But if you read his past comments you can figure it out.
              He doesn’t like the SD808 because it lacks of his beloved A72 arm cores and custom derivates.

              There’s nothing wrong with the SoC, it’s not a flagship one nor a cheap SoC either. It’s one of the best midranger on the market (from the other side we have SD615, SD616, MT6753 and MT6795 and the SD808 beats them all)

            • March 3, 2016

              I was sure he won’t reply (as he didn’t before). But maybe he likes to us his phone in a BOINC or SETI projects, we don’t know. BTW, have you found device you’d like to go for?

            • MaxPower
              March 3, 2016

              Nah, nothing of that.
              It’s just that goose bumps he gets looking at benchmark scores.

              I’ve bought the RN3 Pro recently because I couldn’t wait afor the new releases any longer.

              It’s not the best looking phone but it satisfied all my needs.

            • balcobomber25

              How do you like it so far?

            • MaxPower
              March 3, 2016

              I like it a lot.
              I guess I’ve become more practical lately because in the past I wouldn’t have considered the Redmi line.

              32 GB seems being enough for my needs, I haven’t even put a SD card on it yet.

              Btw, speaking of SD card, I’ve just thrown one away because it got corrupted. It didn’t even last one year and it was a class 10 sandisk I was using on my RPI2.
              Off topic to show that i would not store family pics onto SD cards.

              Battery is amazing and I can’t picture going below 4000 mha anymore (kinda like you can’t go back to non fast charging technology)

              To be honest I think MIUI runs better on KK than Lollipop.

              Camera is just good, not great.
              It didn’t make me say wow like I did with MI4.
              But this is a phone that sells for $180 in China so it’s pretty understandable.

              I like fancy phones, and this one doesn’t shine for its design.
              But again, this is meant to bring substance rather than form.

              I’ll stick with this for a while.
              No reason to switch anytime soon

            • balcobomber25
              March 3, 2016

              I had some very good SD cards get corrupted too which is why I am against them now and rely on the cloud. I think a lot of devices run better on KK, Lollipop was so badly optimized. I have 3 Nexus devices I keep for playing around with, all 3 of them (4, 5, 7) were terrible with Lollipop until 5.1 hit.

            • Lazar Prodanovic
              March 4, 2016

              My 3 year’s old Samsung UHS1 still works fine even I used it for swap. Lollipop had a lot of memory leaks from mem allocator along with leaks on kernel side (at least on CAF we won’t ever really know concerning MTK), most of it patched with late 5.1.1 builds but not all.

          • balcobomber25
            March 3, 2016

            You have a better chance of getting an answer form your dog. SD808 and 810 are fine for your usage.

    1.95GHz is the P10, there is nothing else available that fits.

    Again a 5.5″ phone 🙁

    Really frustrating that no flagship phones are getting smaller screen, we don’t all want 5.5″ screens…

    • realjjj
      March 3, 2016

      Most are frustrated that too few are above 5.5 inch and have been stuck there for 2 years.It’s far harder to find well priced phones above 5.5 inch than bellow.

      And most flagships (this isn’t a flagship) are bellow 5.5inch. Galaxy S7, LG G5, Xiaomi Mi 5 , Huawei P9.

    • Rob
      March 3, 2016

      You have lots of options below 5.5″, it’s above where there is virtually no choice. I’m sick of all these 5.5″ phones like you, but for opposite reasons.

    • Cpaun
      March 3, 2016

      Try Xiaomi mi5, it’s smaller. Personally I prefer larger screens, 5.7″ or 6″ 🙂

  5. HBK
    March 3, 2016

    This won’t have Super vooc. Or else battery will be pathetic. Super Vooc charges in 15min to full. So in 5 min atleast 40% charge. And OPPO teaser said 5 min charge for 2 hours of use. Lol. So if this has Super Vooc, then battery life would be 5 hours.

    + An Oppo exec. confirmed on tweeter that Super Vooc will come next year.

    I doubt about the camera tech as well, they will probably keep it for the flagship device.

    • Assefa Hanson
      March 3, 2016

      what? ummm wasnt that 15min charge stats specific for a i believe a 2600mah battery at the mwc, how can you start pushing all those calcs and make a conclusion and not know the battery capacity? and wouldnt 5 minutes give you 33.3% charge??

      • HbK
        March 3, 2016

        No, the batteries charge faster at the beginning and slower at the end so it will be more than 33.3%.

        And it was 2500Mah.
        Super Vooc was used you would be filling about 1000Mah in 5 min. 1000Mah for 2 hours of talktime is just wrong.

        Also, my beloved Oppo find 7 had Vooc 1st gen and they claim 5 min charge for 2 hours of talktime too. Just Check.

        Long Story Short. This cant be Super Vooc. 🙂

        • Assefa Hanson
          March 3, 2016

          you sure about this? i know generally the first 80% is easy to charge but you would then assume that super vooc have those same limitations

    Really frustrating that no flagship phones are getting smaller screen, we don’t all want 5.5″ screens…

      Most are frustrated that too few are above 5.5 inch and have been stuck there for 2 years.It’s far harder to find well priced phones above 5.5 inch than bellow.

      And most flagships (this isn’t a flagship) are bellow 5.5inch. Galaxy S7, LG G5, Xiaomi Mi 5 , Huawei P9.

      You have lots of options below 5.5″, it’s above where there is virtually no choice. I’m sick of all these 5.5″ phones like you, but for opposite reasons.

      Try Xiaomi mi5, it’s smaller. Personally I prefer larger screens, 5.7″ or 6″ 🙂

    Agree with others here, Oppo used to stand out for their designs, they were one of the first to use metal. And now we have this boring design that looks like any number of phones.

    This won’t have Super vooc. Or else battery will be pathetic. Super Vooc charges in 15min to full. So in 5 min atleast 40% charge. And OPPO teaser said 5 min charge for 2 hours of use. Lol. So if this has Super Vooc, then battery life would be 5 hours.

    + An Oppo exec. confirmed on tweeter that Super Vooc will come next year.

    I doubt about the camera tech as well, they will probably keep it for the flagship device.

      what? ummm wasnt that 15min charge stats specific for a i believe a 2600mah battery at the mwc, how can you start pushing all those calcs and make a conclusion and not know the battery capacity? and wouldnt 5 minutes give you 33.3% charge??

      No, the batteries charge faster at the beginning and slower at the end so it will be more than 33.3%.

      And it was 2500Mah.
      Super Vooc was used you would be filling about 1000Mah in 5 min. 1000Mah for 2 hours of talktime is just wrong.

      Also, my beloved Oppo find 7 had Vooc 1st gen and they claim 5 min charge for 2 hours of talktime too. Just Check.

      Long Story Short. This cant be Super Vooc. 🙂

      you sure about this? i know generally the first 80% is easy to charge but you would then assume that super vooc have those same limitations

    Oppo needs more ideas when it comes to their design language of their phones.
