OPPO, which is increasingly popular among the younger generation, has brought two new smartphones, OPPO R15 and OPPO R15 Pro to Singapore.

Designed around the concept of tapping into fashion and style, both models provide new gradient designs as well as advancements in camera, display and AI-enhanced features.

“If you are looking for a smartphone that is beautiful, while possessing optimal performance capabilities, the new OPPO R15 and R15 Pro are the smartphones for you. Our smartphones bring together the best of fashion, style and quality and we are thrilled to be bringing this to the Singapore market,” said Jeremy Tan, Product Manager, OPPO Singapore.

Designed in collaboration with industrial designer, Karim Rashid, the OPPO R15 comes in trendy colour gradients: Nebula Purple and Rouge Red for the OPPO R15 and Cosmic Purple and Ruby Red for the OPPO R15 Pro. Built with semi-transparent glass, the phone chassis allow light and shadow to influence the colours in reflection of users' creativity.

With gesture operations and full-screen multitasking, the OPPO R15 series offers an unparallelled screen experience. The vOPPO R15 series boasts a 6.28" bezel-less screen with a resolution of 2,280x1,080 and an aspect ratio of 19:9 - a high screen-to-body ratio. The OPPO Super Full Screen provides customised multitasking functions and deep system optimisations based on its ColorOS 5.0. The narrow left and right frames provide notifications and shortcuts to multiple functions or third-party apps.

The OPPO R15 series is the first to adopt the SONY IMX519 image sensor. In addition to upgraded scene recognition based on AI-enhanced technologies, the dual rear cameras (R15: 16 megapixel + 5 megapixel; R15 Pro: 16 megapixel + 20 megapixel) push the limits of photography. Revamped Sensor-HDR technology dramatically improves backlight selfies and allows users to check high dynamic exposure live effects in real-time.

The OPPO R15 series introduces AI scene recognition. The technology can identify 120 scenes and 16 tags. This makes capturing a subject at its best easier than ever. With the Artistic Portrait Mode, the OPPO R15 and R15 Pro feature a 3D lighting technique for shooting improved artistic portraits.

The OPPO R15 series has focused on increasing memory and storage space with its 128 GB ROM with 6 GB RAM (DDR4) combo across both models – giving it the ability to store 20,000+ standard-size photos. Additionally, the R15 has battery capacity of 3,450 mAh (3,400 mAh for R15 Pro) and supports VOOC Flash Charging technology.

Additional features of the R15 Pro include:

- Near field communications (NFC)

An NFC chip is installed for hassle-free payment. The feature supports Android devices.

- Water resistance

The R15 Pro is water resistant and splash-proof up to the IP67 specification. Calls can even be taken in light rain.

- 3D glass surface

The R15 Pro features a 3D glass surface that replicates the iconic slim metal curve design of the R series in a glass body.  

For the last 10 years, OPPO has been focusing on manufacturing camera phones while innovating on mobile photography. OPPO started the era of selfie beautification and was the first brand to launch smartphones with 5 megapixel and 16 megapixel front cameras.  OPPO was also the first brand to introduce the motorised rotating camera, the Ultra HD feature and the 5x Dual Camera Zoom.

In 2017, OPPO was ranked as the No. 4 smartphone brand globally, according to IDC.
