Oppo recently caught the attention of the global press with the unveiling of its all-screen Find X smartphone, but Australian consumers have been well aware of the Chinese brand's commitment to quality smartphones for a number of years now.
The company has now announced that it will be expanding its Australian mobile range further in the coming weeks with the launch of the R15 and R15 Pro, two high-end smartphones designed to offer impressive performance and top-quality camera capabilities within a stylish frame.
The R15 features a striking 6.28-inch OLED display with a 2280 x 1080 resolution. Although it doesn't quite achieve the all-screen look of the forthcoming Find X, it keeps the size of its notch and bezel to a bare minimum.
Internally, the phone is powered by a Helio P60 processor, 6 GB of RAM and a 3450 mAh battery, with 128 GB of on-board storage and MicroSD support. Its cameras, meanwhile, are a standout feature, with a 20-megapixel f/2.0 lens on the front and a dual-lens 16-megapixel f/1.7 and 5-megapixel f/2.2 setup on the rear.
The R15 Pro offers most of the same functions, but with a handful of upgrades to provide a more premium experience, including a ceramic rear cover, an enhanced Snapdragon 660 processor, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and an IP67 rating against water damage.
Additionally, the Pro model pairs its primary rear 16-megapixel lens with a 20-megapixel f/1.7 camera, meaning users can expect optimal image quality every time.
Michael Tran, executive director at Oppo, said: “The R-Series continues to deliver fantastic camera capabilities at an affordable price. We know smartphones are now our customers' camera of choice. As such, we continue to invest in our camera technologies to provide them with an exceptional photography experience, which will have them taking shots like a pro.”
The R15 will be priced at $659, while the R15 Pro comes in at $779. Both can be purchased from JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, Officeworks, RetraVision and Woolworths Mobile, with plans available from carriers such as Woolworths Mobile, Optus, Telstra and Vodafone.
