Oppo just announced the R819 – an Android-powered dual-SIM phone. The handst is just 7.3mm thick and is a featherweight at just 110g, quite impressive for a phone with a 4.7" screen. Oppo will be providing two ROMs for the phone – a stock Android 4.2.1 ROM and a customized Color ROM.
The Oppo R819 has a 4.7" OGS LCD (One Glass Solution by LG) with 720p resolution and 312ppi pixel density. Inside is a Mediatek MT6589 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM and PowerVR SGX544 GPU. A 2,000mAh battery powers the phone and there's 16GB of non-expandable storage.
The main camera uses a Sony Exmor 8MP BSI sensor and a fast F/2.0 lens, while the front-facing camera has a wide-angle 88° lens. Both cameras can shoot 1080p video.
The smartphone has quad-band 2G support and tri-band 3G support and works with two microSIM cards, with dual-standby support.
The Oppo R819 is available for preorder online right now and will ship in early September. Pricing for Australia, Hong Kong and Japan (the only three countries where it will be available at launch) are A$399, HK$2,798, and JPY36,000, respectively.
By the way, we have the R819 in our office and we'll be posting more on the dual-SIM Android soon.
