The new special edition OPPO R9s proves that Black is back


This post is brought to you by the OPPO R9s Black Edition

Earlier this month, OPPO Malaysia released a black edition of their new OPPO R9s camera-centric smartphone. Today, we unbox it in all its matte black glory. Here’s what you get.

OPPO’s R9s is a pretty solid smartphone. It’s got a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display in front that looks pretty good. Inside, it’s powered by a 14nm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor mated to 4GB of RAM. Since you’re going to be taking a whole bunch of photos, the smartphone comes with 64GB of internal storage that you can further expand via a microSD card.

Speaking of taking pictures, you now come to the piece de resistance of OPPO’s new handset — its cameras. The primary camera at the back features a 16-megapixel f/1.7 aperture camera with a Sony IMX398 sensor. It’s also got Dual PDAF autofocusing technology for some seriously fast focus times. In front, you’ve got a high-resolution 16-megapixel f/2.0 aperture selfie shooter.

Giving your smartphone juice is a 3,010 mAh battery. This smartphone also supports fast-charging via OPPO’s VOOC Flash Charge technology. VOOC is probably one of the fastest fast-charging standards available in the market right now so you’ll have your handset topped up in a jiffy.

Other creature comforts include a ridiculously fast fingerprint scanner as well as that sexy black anodised metal body which feels really premium in the hand.
