OPPO launched their new OPPO R15 Pro on 24 May 2018 at Ruyi & Lyn in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, adding a new offering to their O-fans Malaysia. Being an Oppo user myself for a brief period of time, I was quite excited to see the latest innovations that Oppo would undoubtedly add to this latest intelligent (and no its no more smartphone, the latest like of phones from most of the manufacturers are now “intelligent” phones) phone.
At the price of RM2,399, OPPO R15 Pro is available to pre-order from 25th May 2018 till 31st May 2018. Customers may place their order at OPPO Concept Store ,OPPO telco partner’s store Celcom or at OPPO’s chain store partners, SenHeng and SenQ. Alternatively, customers may place their order through online at OPPO Official Website or e-commerce’s partner store, which are Lazada, Shopee or 11Street Malaysia. As a gesture of appreciation, customers will be getting a limited gift from OPPO Malaysia. Note that, all the free gifts are redeemable only on 1st June 2018, the first sale day of OPPO R15 Pro. Exclusively to KLCC Flaship Store, customers may collect and purchase their R15 Pro in advance on 29th May 2018 and will also eligible to the redemption of the limited free gift on the same sales day.
OPPO aims to target the young and the young at heart by tapping into their taste in fashion and style to design products with breathtaking appeal. This time OPPO collaborated with famed designer Karim Rashid to create two trendy colours for the OPPO R15 Pro, namely Cosmic Purple and Ruby Red. The Cosmic Purple and Ruby Red phones are created using an aluminium frame with more transparent glass in new gradient design, allowing light and shadow to play off with the colours whilst creating unlimited creative possibilities for users. These ethereal colour designs of OPPO R15 Pro reflect both OPPO’s designers and insights into what aesthetics appeal to young consumers around the globe.
Another prominent design feature upgrade in this model is the Super Full Screen. OPPO R15 Pro comes equipped with a unique 6.28-inch bezel-less screen that features a resolution of 2280×1080 and an aspect ratio of 19:9, a super-high screen-to-body ratio. The OPPO Super Full Screen is not only a notched display (that has come to show that its a new generation intelligent phone) but also with enhanced customised standby Multitasking functions and deep system optimizations based on its ColorOS 5.0. The narrow left and right frames can provide convenient notifications shortcuts to multiple functions and third-party apps.
Ray Wong, Product Specialist of OPPO R15 Pro said, “A good performance of smartphone’s camera features and it’s appearance is one of major consideration for individual before purchasing a new phone. The OPPO R15 Pro is specifically designed with not just powerful front and rear cameras but it’s trendy and aesthetic appearance will become embellishment to a personality. This mystery and sophisticated color combine results in a more appealing design than most other phones today”.
The OPPO R15 continues advancing the limits of photography, by featuring not only dual rear cameras of 16MP+20MP, along with an upgraded scenario recognition based on AI-enhanced technologies, it also became the first ever smartphone to adopt the sensor SONY IMX519 to produce outstanding depth-of field effects, The OPPO R15 Pro can now accurately collect 296 feature points of a human face and support multiple camera features such as the AI Beauty Technology and the AR Sticker. The re-invented ‘Sensor-HDR’ technology dramatically improves backlight Selfies and allows users to check high dynamic exposure live effects in real-time.
The OPPO R15 Pro comes with increased memory and its storage space, with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM so that users may store 20,000+ standard size photos and enjoy any apps smoothly without lagging, Additionally, the R15 Pro has battery capacity of 3,430 mAh supported with VOOC Flash Charging technology. The R15 Pro is now equipped with an NFC chip which can make payments more mobile and hassle-free, whether it is payment using Android Pay, bank card, or transport card.
I shot the 2 sets of photos below using the Oppo R15 Pro. The ones on the left on normal mode and the ones on the right using bokeh mode. Very impressed with the astounding low light photography which is great for shooting portrait/ people (although quite expected since its an Oppo).
