OPPO, a leading global technology brand, recently launched their latest camera phone, the OPPO R9s. I had seen OPPO smartphones in the market, heard and knew about their OPPO smartphone series. The arrival of the R9s, the latest addition to their camera centric OPPO smartphones, is an interesting and great addition to the smartphone camera market with strong camera/photography capabilities.
Being a photographer and an avid mobile phone photographer myself, smartphone camera models interest me and I would want to share more information and details about the OPPO R9s since it has an exclusive Sony sensor inside the OPPO R9s!
Here are some key information and details of the latest camera phone OPPO R9s –
The latest in OPPO’s range of exciting camera-centric phones, the R9s serves as an upgrade to the R9, and sports an exclusive Sony IMX398 sensor, the all-new Dual PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus) technology, and an improved rear camera.
The OPPO R9s combines its’ predecessor’s widely popular selfie-snapping capabilities, with an improved 16 MP rear camera, which features the all-new Sony IMX398 sensor – a customized 1/2.8-inch sensor, jointly developed by OPPO and Sony. Paired with an extra-wide f/1.7 aperture, the R9s is guaranteed to capture 60 percent more light than in previous generations.
Thanks to its Dual PDAF technology, the rear camera offers phenomenal focusing speed and noise reduction, allowing users to snap breathtakingly clear and beautiful images at a moment’s notice. This new technology increases the area of the sensor’s pixel array by a 100 percent, when compared to standard PDAF solutions, making for lightning-fast focusing — even in low light — and producing crystal-clear images.
The R9s will be available for pre-order from 29 November 2016 to 9 December 2016, before going on sale from 10 December 2016 (Gold) and January (Rose Gold) for $679 from the following retailers:
