Oppo has just launched its new all-metal smartphones in China packing 6GB RAM, 16MP front, and rear cameras. The Oppo R9s runs on the Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor with a 5.5-inch 1080p display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 Protection. Oppo has gone with a very narrow 1.7mm thin frame giving the phone a 77.5% screen-to-body ratio.

The Oppo R9s Plus runs on the newly minted Snapdragon 653 octa-core processor with a 6-inch 1080p display also protected by Gorilla Glass 5. This is Oppo's first smartphone with 6GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage which is expandable using a hybrid SIM card slot. Both phones feature the new slot antenna design with 3 small slits at the back both at the top and bottom for the antenna bands to go through.


On the camera front both phones feature the new Sony IMX398 sensor based 16MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture lens and 4K video recording while there is a 16MP front-facing camera as well. You get a dual-tone LED flash at the back. The Oppo R9s Plus also has OIS+ for stable shots even in low light while the R9 manages using EIS or Digital Stabilization.
