Oppo R1S Goes Official with 5-Inch HD Display, Quad-Core CPU, on Pre-Order from April 25

After launching the Oppo R1 mid-range Android smartphone, the Chinese company decided to try its luck with a sequel, which is dubbed Oppo R1S. The Oppo R1 and R1S have been priced similarly, although they have different specs, so it’s up to each and every Android enthusiast to choose the right device for them.

The official launch of the R1S doesn’t come as a surprise given the fact that the smartphone received its certification in China last week. However, we did not know when exactly Oppo would announce the new smartphone. Powered by Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system with Color ROM, Oppo R1S is another mid-range smartphone that offers more than decent hardware specs. According to fonearena, the R1S will be available for pre-order for 2,500 yuan ($400 / €290) outright beginning April 25. For the time being, the smartphone will only be released in China, but Oppo may decide to bring it to other countries in the region as well. It is also worth mentioning that Oppo R1S will be available in both blue and white color options and will be up for pre-order via Oppo’s official online store.

Just like the HTC Desire 816, the Oppo R1S is equipped with a more than decent 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, which is accompanied by an Adreno 305 graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM. The R1S comes with 16GB of storage, but there’s no mention of microSD card slot for memory expansion, so we must assume that it lacks one. That may be its only downside, though there are plenty of companies that offer free cloud storage for various periods. Furthermore, the Oppo R1S sports a 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720p) resolution. The phone is only 7.1mm thin and weighs 140 grams (battery included). Speaking of which, the smartphone is powered by a 2140 mAh battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.

Another strong point of Oppo’s mid-range smartphone is the 13-megapixel camera on the back, which features 6-element, f/2.0 aperture, 1/3″ Sony IMX214 sensor, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. There’s also a secondary, no less impressive, 5-megapixel photo snapper in the front, which is perfect for selfies or video calls. On the connectivity front, Oppo R1S does not disappoint, as the smartphone comes with 4G LTE support, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS and microUSB.
