Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo has launched a 4.7-inch display-equipped smartphone with the catchy moniker of the R819.
Anonymous naming scheme aside, the device is solidly specced and includes a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 720p HD display, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 16GB of on-board storage.
While the device will arrive running Oppo’s own ‘Color ROM’, it said that it would also happily run stock Android, if the owner wished.
While many Chinese smartphone devices don’t make it to Europe or the US, potential purchasers can pre-order it now from Oppo’s European website for €269, with delivery expected in early September.
