Oppo R9 and R9 Plus launching outside China next week

Himanshu, 28 March, 2016

If you're waiting for Oppo to launch its R9 and R9 Plus smartphones outside China, here is some good news: the company has sent out media invites for a phone launch event in India scheduled for April 5.

While the invite itself doesn't explicitly say which phone(s) will be unveiled, the text 'Selfie Expert' is more than enough to conclude that the R9 and R9 Plus will be the star of the event given that they feature 16MP front shooters and have been marketed by the company as camera-centric phones right from the beginning.

Both phones were made official in Oppo's home country of China on March 17, and were released a week later, with the company selling over 180,000 units on the first day itself.

As for the price, the R9 carries a tag of RMB 2,799 ($430) in China, while the Plus variant sets you back RMB 3,299 ($510). Given that the two have already begun their global expansion we are hoping Oppo will bring them to all of its supported markets shortly.

Yes.

I am pretty certain there are active Vivo/ Oppo sales reps who are posting positive comments against their phones to sell them. Look in the Oppo F1 comments section, I find repetitive marketing jargon's which the same user is posting again and again....

Even I am wondering why your post got deleted. Who reported it and on what basis it was considered to be a valid case for removal. Really strange.
