Kuala Lumpur, 1 March 2017 – OPPO Malaysia is pleased to announce that the OPPO R9s Plus is finally here in Malaysia. The long-awaited R9s Plus features OPPO’s powerful 16MP IMX398 rear camera from SONY and a f/1.7 super large aperture, together with a Dual PDAF feature. However, this time, the camera phone experts are throwing in a number of additional features: brand new Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) with an anti-shake area that is larger than the ordinary OIS by 40% on a larger 6inch screen. Users can also look forward to the newly launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 processor and 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, coupled with an increased battery capacity of 4000mAh, allowing for an uninterrupted professional photography experience all day.
The OPPO R9s Plus
The OPPO R9s has seen great success since its introduction in Malaysia early this year, with both pre-order and in-store sales exceeding the already impressive sales figure of the OPPO F1s. Just recently, the Valentines Red edition sold out online in just 48 hours after its pre-order was announced, and have sold out at concept stores before it was officially up for sale. Another remarkable achievement is the popularity of OPPO’s limited celebrity edition smartphones - both the OPPO F1s Ayda Jebat edition and OPPO R9s Min Chen edition sold out in a matter of days after pre-order was announced, proving the fame of OPPO’s celebrity endorsers.
“We are extremely excited to reveal the OPPO R9s Plus to the Malaysian market, as we know that our Malaysian fans are always on-the-go and love capturing and sharing photos of their daily activities. With 2017 being the year of mobile photography, it only makes sense for OPPO to reward our loyal Malaysian fans with an improved version of the R9s which they love. The R9s Plus ensures that users will never have to worry about clarity, comfortable viewing, battery life, and storage space”, said Chen Lu, Brand Director of OPPO Malaysia.
Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), IMX 398 sensor and Dual PDAF technology
The OPPO R9s Plus brings forward the technology that made its debut in the OPPO R9s, in addition to a myriad of other advancements. The powerful 16MP rear camera comes equipped with an impressive SONY IMX398 sensor – a customized 1/2.8inch sensor that SONY and OPPO developed together. Also making a comeback in the R9s Plus is the extra-wide f/1.7 super large aperture that captures 40% more light than previous generations. A new addition is the OIS feature of the R9s Plus. Designed to be a notch above ordinary OIS, the anti-shake area is larger by 40%. This means the R9s Plus is able to handle more jitter, in addition to more exposure time, promising users extremely clear and captivating night scenes.
Like its predecessor, the R9s Plus’ camera uses Dual PDAF technology, a next-generation upgrade from standard PDAF solutions. The first generation of PDAF has only “a half” pixel for focusing, but the Dual PDAF increases by 100% the area of the sensor’s pixel array equipped with the special photo diodes necessary for phase-detection autofocus, allowing lightning-fast focusing — even in low light — and producing crystal-clear images.
Powerful performance for the ultimate photography experience
The R9s Plus is powered by a 1.95GHz octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor and comes with 6GB of RAM. It comes packed with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB, allowing users to store an abundant number of meaningful moments captured with the R9s Plus’ impressive rear camera. The R9s Plus also sees an upgrade in terms of battery. It is now backed with a 4,000mAh battery, enabling users to capture clear and crisp photos with no worries!
Bigger is Better
Another noteworthy upgrade is that the R9s Plus features a 6-inch Full HD panel, as opposed to the R9s’ 5.5inch. It runs on OPPO’s Color OS 3.0, based on Android 6.0.1.. Now, photography lovers can go through their masterpieces comfortably with the sizable screen. Not only that, daily activities that get you through the day such as gaming and watching dramas are definitely more enjoyable with the R9s Plus’1920 x 1080pixel display.
