The colour black has many meanings associated with it. It can stand for authority, elegance, sophistication and mystery – among other things. But it can sometimes mean its simplicity is lost among the noise of other vibrant colours such as gold and amber. That seems to be the case when it comes to the OPPO R9s. The device initially launched in January with only Gold and Rose Gold colours available. However, OPPO has been diligent in providing more colour options albeit in limited quantities.
Enter the new OPPO R9s Black Edition. A new colour variant of the R9s that stands out in its simplicity and silently steals your attention. The new colour evokes a sense of intrigue and mystery like none of the other colours that we’ve seen the OPPO R9s in before. The Black Edition brings with it a sense of exclusivity and authority that was lacking in the previous colours. It also brings versatility for those who are style and Fashion conscious. The black of the OPPO R9s Black Edition blends in effortlessly into any outfit and can even steal the limelight as a standout accessory or statement piece.
But all this style isn’t without substance. The OPPO R9s Black Edition brings along with it a user experience that has both been proven and continues to hit functionality and style notes. The main experience the self-proclaimed “Selfie Expert” is lauding is the pixel dense 16-megapixel front-facing camera. Being one of the first manufacturers to focus on the selfie, OPPO has managed to not only shoehorn features into the software, they’ve also made sure that the camera lens and module are made for the “perfect selfie”. The front camera comes with features like beautify which allows you to hide any blemishes. But aside from that, the camera module comes with dual Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) which allows it to get the best picture even in extremely contrasting scenarios. What’s more, the OPPO R9s doesn’t just focus on the front facer. It also brings a power packed 16-megapixel sensor to the back of the device. The back camera of the OPPO R9s is able to produce impressive pictures even under low light.
That said, the focus of the OPPO R9s Black edition isn’t the camera functionality, it’s the company’s take on a colour which simply steals the spotlight. The matte black finish allows the emblazoned OPPO logo to stand out like a symbol of opulence. With its versatility and unique intrigue, it is bound to convince many people to get the OPPO R9s. It wouldn’t be too surprising if OPPO suddenly sees a change in their main demographic after the release of the OPPO R9s black edition. The black edition does away with the demure, ladylike feel that OPPO devices have had for the longest time.
