Oppo has launched the updated versions of the Oppo R9 and the R9 Plus in the form of R9s and the R9s Plus. The two new phones are aimed at the selfie centric consumer with 16MP cameras up front on both the devices. Previously only the R9 Plus had a 16MP front facing camera. Both R9s and R9s Plus have a similar design to their predecessors, featuring rounded edges, metal body and a fingerprint scanner at the front.

The Oppo R9s Plus, which is the bigger of the two sports a 6-inch 1080p display with very slim 1.78mm bezels. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC. This new octa-core SoC was announced just a few days back and is a bumped up version of the current gen Snapdragon 652 SoC. There is 6Gb of RAM and 64GB of internal storage on the device. The phone does support external storage via the hybrid dual SIM slot. It has a 4000mAh battery and is just 7.53mm thick.

In comparison, the Oppo R9 is a smaller device with just a 5.5-inch display offering a 1080p resolution. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, which we recently saw on the Asus Zenfone 3. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, which can be further extended using a microSD card. The smaller device packs in a 3010mAh battery.

On the back, both device sport a 16MP camera featuring Sony’s IMX398 sensor. Both the R9s and R9s Plus has a 2.5D curved Gorilla protective display on top. These devices also sport Oppo’s VOOC charging technology and it claims that in just 5 minutes of charging, the phones can provide 2 hours of talktime.
