Phone manufacturer Oppo is set to release a new flagship smartphone soon, and a recent leak of the alleged device seems to show some undeniable inspirations taken from Apple's flagship smartphone.
According to a report from DigitIndia, a leaked render of the Oppo R15 came out on Weibo, showing some interesting details that directly draw elements from the iPhone X. Like Apple's flagship smartphone, the device comes with a bezel-less display, with the bezels given a similar narrow treatment. Moreover, the R15 will also reportedly showcase a notch at the front part.
The rear, however, will allegedly be different, particularly on the camera setup. Instead of applying a vertically-stacked camera sensor, the render shows that the device will employ a camera layout that is similar to that of the OnePlus 5T with a horizontally-stacked dual camera setup, a report from Deccan Chronicle noted. In addition, there will also be a fingerprint scanner placed on the back.
Another interesting detail tied to the alleged Oppo R15 is that it will be powered by the Snapdragon 670 chipset from Qualcomm. The chipset is said to be manufactured with the 10nm LPP process technology of Samsung. Furthermore, it is also geared toward improving the imaging capabilities of the smartphone. As for the device's colors, the leaked renders showed Black, Pink, and Purple to be the possible colors come launching.
Meanwhile, Oppo recently started to offer free replacements for broken screens of the R11s and R11s Plus smartphones in Australia. The offer applies to devices that have been damaged within six months from their purchase date, TechRadar reported. Moreover, users who will apply for the offer should be the first owners of their respective devices.
There are other terms and conditions listed on the offer's official page, though in general, Oppo stressed that the screens of their devices, in this case, the R11s and R11s Plus, are generally durable, CNet reported.
"We have complete confidence that the screens are of the highest standard and durability," said Michael Tran, executive director at Oppo Australia. "However, even with screen protectors and cases, we know that accidents happen, which can be frustrating and costly for consumers. We hope this gives them added comfort, knowing that they're covered and a broken screen won't break the bank," he added.
