Chinese phone maker Oppo is launching two new phones with big screens, dual cameras, and plenty of RAM and storage.

The Oppo R15 and R15 Pro both feature 6.3 inch, 2280 x 1080 pixel displays (with a 19:9 aspect ratio), 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. They both have 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, dual rear cameras, and 20MP front cameras.

So why two models? Because the $475 Oppo R15 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 processor, while the $525 Oppo R15 Pro has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chip.

A few other differences: The Oppo R15 Pro has a 16MP + 20MP rear camera system, a ceramic back, and a 3,400 mAh battery, while the regular Oppo R15 has a 16MP + 5MP camera, a metal back cover, and a 3,450 mAh battery.

Overall, these are both phones with specs that straddle the line between mid-range and premium.

They don’t have the fastest processors, the highest resolution displays, or the best cameras. But they do have some nice features including support for portrait mode and time-lapse photography, and dual SIM support (or you can use one of those SIM card slots for a microSD card).

The phones have micro USB ports rather than USB Type-C, and they support Oppo’s VOOC fast charging systems. Oppo put the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phones, and went with the increasingly common notch-and-slime-bezels design for the front.

Finder and Android Headlines both got a little hands-on time with the phones, and report that they’re nice looking devices (if you can stand the notch) with relatively zippy performance.

  1. And BTW SD660 is more of a 25$ SoC, P60 should be bellow 20$, maybe well bellow and there is the SD636 that in theory should be even cheaper but unclear if Qualcomm can afford that since it’s same silicon as SD660.
    4 big cores+ 4 small are finally replacing the 8xA53 in the 10 to 20$ price range, this is the new mid range going forward.

  2. Everybody talks about how a few companies are transitioning to the unsightly and unnecessary notch. The bigger transition is toward the 2:1 aspect ratio and worse (ie, narrower as in this case). Oppo appears to have embraced two deal-breakers for me. Honestly… very bored with what manufacturers are coming out with.
