Oppo R1S Passes Through Tenaa, A Snapdragon Version Of The R1

By 04:53 Mon, 19 Jul 2021 Comments

The Oppo R1, a slim, dual-SIM phone, went official late last year with a MediaTek chipset but Oppo has a Snapdragon version in the works too, which was just certified by Tenaa (the Chinese wireless authority).

Tentatively dubbed Oppo R1S, the phone maintains the slender dimensions of 142.7 x 70.4 x 7.1mm and it's actually a bit lighter at 136g. The phone has a 5" TFT classy screen with 720p resolution (294ppi), just like the regular R1.

Where the phones differ is that the Snapdragon chipset (presumably Snapdragon 400 MSM8926) supports LTE – both Chinese and global. The recent phone is a bit more powerful too – the Central Processing Units (CPU) is still a quad-core Cortex-A7 but it's now clocked at 1.6Giga Hertz (GHz) and there's 2GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) instead of just 1GB.

The Oppo R1S runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, one up from the 4.2 Jelly Bean that the R1 came out with. The Snapdragon chipset should allow for easier updates to newer Android versions over the MediaTek chipset too.

Another upgrade is the capturing camera – the main capturing camera is now a 13MP shooter, up from 8MP. It can record 1080p video. From the Tenaa info we can't quite disclose if the Oppo R1S is a dual-SIM like the R1 or not.
