OPPO R15 price in India: Expected price at Rs 22,990

The Chinese smartphone maker, OPPO has released yet another smartphone in China, and people in India seems to be excited about it. But will it come to India, well, that is up to OPPO. First, let's talk about the device itself. The device in question is OPPO R15, the new handset in their popular R Series. Let’s talk about the OPPO R15 specifications in detail.

What’s hot?

iPhone X style notch, Bezel-less screen, Dual-rear camera, and Android 8.1 Oreo-based UI.

What’s not?

Low-battery capacity.

Design & Display

Looks like OPPO has been experimenting with the design aesthetics, the reason we said so is that it is the first time that the Chinese brand is offering a bezel-less screen with iPhone X style notch. It may not be the exact copy, but OPPO did take a page from Apple’s playbook. Sporting a 6.28-inches screen with 19:9 aspect ratio and a claimed 90% screen-to-body ratio, it comes with a Gorilla Glass 5. The screen resolution that you see is a 2280 x 1080, which is more than enough to light up your viewing experience.

Performance & User Experience

OPPO has done it again! They have opted for a MediaTek processor and ditched the Qualcomm chipset. Running on the latest Helio P60 processor, which is manufactured on the 10nm fabrication process technology. It allows the chipset to be powerful and energy efficient at the same time. Supported by the massive 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which can be further expanded to 256GB via microSD card. The user interface on this device is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo. So, naturally expect a good user experience.   

Camera

Taking the lead in the camera department is the dual-rear camera setup. The primary camera is of 16MP, which packs a f/1.7 aperture lens. Whereas the secondary camera is of 5MP, which packs a f/2.2 aperture lens. Further, the camera setup is supported by a PDAF technology. Talking about the selfie experience, it is powered by a 20MP camera sporting a f/2.0 aperture lens.

Battery

A 3450 mAh capacity battery is claimed to more than enough for a long battery life on the all-new OPPO R15 smartphone. Considering the energy efficient processor and the low power consumption Android Oreo UI, it will surely offer a good battery life.

Verdict

Everything is brilliant on the all-new OPPO R15 specification sheet, but the primary concern is that OPPO R15 price may be higher than its competition. Taking the processor as a base, it is believed that an Helio P series is considered to be a mid-range chipset. However, powerful it may be, the processor inside the new OPPO smartphone cannot compete with the Snapdragon 800 series chipsets. So, pricing a device similar to OnePlus 5T, or Nokia 8 won’t make it a handset worth investing around Rs 40,000 bucks.
