Those who have been expecting Oppo R9 to feature Snapdragon 820 CPU and 2K Display, we have a bad news for them. Snapdragon 820 may arrive with Oppo Find 9, but R9 series would not feature this for sure and display will be limited to 1080 pixels.
Oppo would release 2 new models in the event that is expected to take place this month on March 17. Oppo R9 will arrive with its Elder Brother known as Oppo R9 Plus. Both the models have already been certified by Tenaa, and this is certain that they both don’t have Snapdragon 820 CPU inside.
On Tenaa Oppo R9 showed up as Oppo R9m, and Oppo R9 Plus showed as OPPO R9 Plustm A.
Oppo R9 Plus
According to Tenaa Certification detail, Oppo R9 Plus will feature a 6-inch Full HD AMOLED Display, 4GB RAM, 64GB Internal Storage (Expandable with MicroSD, up to 128GB), and it will run Android Lollipop 5.1.1 OS. The device will surprisingly feature 16MP Camera on its rear as well as front, and 1.8 GHz octa-core processor. They have not mentioned the processor name, but Snapdragon 820 is a quad-core processor, so this would certainly be Snapdragon 652. And of course a Finger Print Scanner is also there on its front.
Here is the real image of Oppo R9 Plus, and Oppo R9 also looks exactly the same in design, but the only difference is the Display Size.
Oppo R9 is the younger brother of R9 Plus that has also cleared its Certification. These are the Similarities both Oppo R9 Plus and R9 have;
- Design : Same design with little change in dimension because of display size
- RAM : 4GB RAM for both model

- Resolution : Both features 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution

Oppo R9 features a 5.5-inch display, 1.95 GHz octa-core processor (Processor name is unknown) and 32GB ROM. The processor would probably be Snapdragon 625. This model will also run Android Lollipop OS.
At MWC 2016, Oppo introduced its new Fast Charging and Optical Image Stabilization features, but Optical Image would still be absent in Oppo R9 Plus and R9, at least this is what Tenaa Shows.
However, Oppo R9 Plus and Oppo R9 would still feature fast charging VOOC tech according to company’s official teaser image that you can see below.
