Oppo has confirmed both the launch of their upcoming new phone and what camera sensor the new phone will be running too.

Oppo has started to send out invitations to the launch of their Oppo R9S smartphone launch in China and as usual they have done something a little different. With this launch the company has also included a small jewellery box containing a 16 megapixel Sony IMX398 camera sensor confirming what camera the new phone will offer.

But this isn’t just Oppo buying a sensor from Sony and adding it to the specs! Apparently, the cooperation between Oppo and Sony goes deeper than that with claims that the two companies worked together on the development of the sensor and some key tech for the R9S.

At this stage we don’t know the official specs of the phone but sources close to the company have suggested the phone will feature a Snapdragon 652 SoC, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. The main feature will be the Sony 16 mega-pixel sensor which is has a class leading F1.7 aperture and new dual core focus technology. VOOC will also be making a comeback too.

Oppo will be releasing the Oppo R9S on 19th October so watch this space.
