OPPO has launched the OPPO R9s Special Red Edition in Singapore, making it the first location outside of mainland China and Taiwan to receive the colour variant. Created to celebrate the lunar new year, the special edition R9s is the first in the R series to be decked in red, and marks the first time that OPPO has launched a red variant in Singapore.

The camera phone retains the technical specifications of its gold and rose gold variants, and sports a Sony IMX398 sensor, the all-new Dual PDAF (phase detection autofocus) technology, and an extra-wide f/1.7 aperture on its rear camera to capture more light.

The R9s introduces a new design feature in the “six-string” antenna lines, which are essentially two sets of three ultra-fine lines that replace the thick white bands that traverse the backs of most phones. The fresh look is paired with stronger performance than ever. The R9s is equipped to operate on six frequency ranges, dynamically choosing the best one for 4G and Wi-Fi signals. With the new design, the R9s’ body is 98.9% metal, with a screen-to-body ratio of 72.9 %. The R9s’ visual impact is subtle, refined and distinguished, with superb signal reception to match.

Other key features include:

- 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM (256GB expandable memory)

- Exceptionally fast (0.2 seconds) and intelligent fingerprint reader that refines performance over time

- 3,010 mAH battery with VOOC Flash Charge technology - a low voltage fast-charging system that does not overtax the phone’s internals with excess heat.
