Continuing the campaign, a couple of new teasers have been released by the company revealing that the R9 will feature a front-facing fingerprint sensor capable of unlocking the phone in just 0.2 seconds.
In addition, the Chinese company also reportedly dropped hints about the handset being ideal for making mobile payments - if you recall, there have already been reports that several smartphone manufacturers in China are planning to release their own payments service, although Oppo wasn't named explicitly.
Coming back to the R9, the device (along with the R9 Plus) has already been spotted on TENAA, revealing a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED touchscreen and a 1.95 GHz octa-core processor. Other specs include 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 2,850 mAh battery, and two 16 MP cameras.
As for the price, the handset is expected to carry a tag of RMB 2,498, which translates into around $385 at current exchange rates.
I'm pretty sure you already got your hands on this phone even before release and already tested it to know that... These kiddos today... just making statements with no background and no sense just for the sake of spreading hate.
Reliable unlocking despite slightly moist fingers is of higher priority. I am surprised how little it takes before the current generation of fingerprint-sensors refuse to cooperate.
0.2 seconds? Who cares? If it's not accurate and secure, it's useless. Oppo is just the same bullshit even if it would have all the best specs in a phone.
