(UPDATE) OPPO Philippines to Announce New Selfie Expert Device on Nov 8


OPPO Philippines has just posted a teaser image on their Facebook page a couple of hours ago announcing that a "New Face of the Selfie Expert" is coming "soon", attaching a date that says "11.08.2016". In the said image as well, a portion of a phone's back panel is showcased as you can see in the photo above. This can only mean one thing, new selfie-centric OPPO smartphone or smartphones are coming next month. And most likely these are the newly announced R9s and R9s Plus.

A couple of days back, OPPO has unveiled two new smartphones in China at a special event. There, the OPPO R9s and R9s Plus were revealed. These handsets' photo was actually leaked a couple of days ahead of official announcement giving users and fans a first look prior to the formal announcement. These new devices will start selling in China in December.


Now that OPPO Philippines just posted a teaser, it is most likely to be the same devices they are talking about here and are most likely to hit local shelves in time for this year's holiday season. What do you think?

Below are the official specs of the OPPO R9s and R9s Plus.

OPPO R9s specs:
  • 5.5-inch Full HD Display
  • 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor
  • Adreno 506 GPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage
  • Supports microSD card up to 128GB
  • 16MP rear camera with 5P Lens, f/2.0 aperture
  • 16MP front camera with 6P Lens, f/1.7 aperture
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with ColorOS 3.0 
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Dual-SIM
  • 4G LTE
  • NFC
  • Fingerprint Sensor
  • VOOC Rapid Charge
  • 3010mAh battery
  • 2799 Yuan (Php20K)
OPPO R9s Plus specs:
  • 6.0-inch Full HD Display
  • 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • 1.9GHz octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor
  • 6GB RAM
  • 64GB Internal storage
  • Supports microSD card up to 128GB
  • 16MP rear camera with 5P Lens, f/2.0 aperture
  • 16MP front camera with 6P Lens, f/1.7 aperture
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with ColorOS 3.0 
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Dual-SIM
  • 4G LTE
  • NFC
  • Fingerprint Sensor
  • VOOC Rapid Charge 
  • 4000mAh battery
  • 3499 Yuan (Php25K)
These new phones are of course official follow ups to last year's R9 and R9 Plus but were reconfigured or rebranded and released in the Philippines as the OPPO F1s (unboxing and initial impressions here) which is one of the best mid-range smartphones around. That being said, we can also expect that OPPO may implement some changes on this or these phones for the Philippine market. Whatever that is, we will all know on November 8, 2016. So please stay tuned.

UPDATE: Oct 25, 2016

Apparently, we are not only expecting new smartphones to be unveiled by OPPO in a couple of weeks. In addition to the teaser image above, the Chinese smartphone maker also posted another teaser on their Facebook page but this time it's not showing a mysterious handset, but an image of a yet-to-be-revealed male ambassador. Hence, "New Face of the #SelfieExpert".  See below.


OPPO fans and followers on social media have their own guesses as to who's going to be the next OPPO ambassador beginning next month. Your guess may be different but a lot of them, including myself, are thinking it's going to be none other than the Alden Richards, the other-half of the wildly popular local loveteam called "AlDub". We may be wrong, but whoever this is, we will all find out on November 8th, 2016.
