Oppo is reportedly working on a new R series smartphone with a launch expected in coming months. This new phone is said to be called Oppo R19 which will be a successor to last year's Oppo R17. Like other phones in the series, it is expected to be a premium offering with high-end features. And now, a new leak has emerged revealing few details about the upcoming phone.
This new leak is about an alleged Oppo R17 launch tease poster which shows the phone from both the front and back. On the front, one can see that there is nothing except for the display everywhere. There are almost negligible bezels with no selfie camera either. This suggests that Oppo will be offering the pop-up selfie camera mechanism like the Oppo Find X and Vivo NEX lineup.
On the back panel, there is a dual rear camera setup with LED flash. It is said to feature a 48-megapixel primary sensor which should help in clicking sharper and better images. The back panel further has Oppo branding which is expected. It can be seen in the gradient finish which has become the latest trend in smartphone appearances. Since there is no fingerprint scanner on the back, the phone is likely to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.
There is no information related to Oppo R19 launch yet but it set to get official in China first. There are speculations that the upcoming Oppo F11 will simply be a global version of the R19. The Oppo F11 is expected to get official in India sometime next month.
