There has been word that the Chinese manufacturer Oppo is planning to release a new Android-based handset under the name of “Oppo R1”. It appears that some new leaked images of the upcoming device have leaked online.
The Chinese market is expected to see the mid-ranged flashgrip, that is expected to provide a premium feel, in the near future. The Oppo R1, being the next in line from the Oppo R-series, is said to bring an improved camera, and rumors are that it will arrive in stores with a 8-megapixels on the back side with an f2.0 aperture. GizChina reports that the camera should be similar to the Meizo MX3 flashgrip recently released on the market.
At the same time, the upcoming Oppo R1 should arrive on shelves with an all-glass construction, as well as with an anti-fingerprint coating, which should keep its body clean even when heavily used. The same as other R-series smartphones from Oppo, the forthcoming handset is expected to be powered by a Mediatek processor. It will sport a quad-core MT6589 CPU, it seems. The specifications list of the new mobile phone also includes support for two SIM cards at the same time, along with micro SD memory card slot for expansion purposes.
The handset hasn’t been officially confirmed as of now, but rumor has it that it will be launched before the end of this year. Furthermore, it is expected to cost around ¥2,000 or around $329 / €239 / £ 201 when made available. The same as other Oppo smartphones, the new device will be powered by Google’s Android operating system, but no specific info on the actual version of the platform has been provided as of now. Keep an eye on this space for additional details on the matter.
