OPPO's R9s turns red for Valentine's (updated)

Updated at 10:25 on February 7, 2017: The OPPO R9s Valentine Red Edition will be priced similarly to the standard R9s at RM1,798. It will be up for pre-order at the OPPO Online Store later today, or at the 70 OPPO Concept Stores nationwide. As we’ve mentioned earlier, pre-ordering the R9s Valentine Red Edition online will allow you to personalize the back of your device with a laser-engraved message in either Chinese or English (maximum 15 characters).

Updated at 15:38 on February 3, 2017: The Valentine Red Edition R9s can be pre-ordered from an OPPO Concept Store, by placing an RM100 deposit fee. It can also be pre-ordered online on OPPO's official website, but full payment is required for this method. Those who place their pre-orders online can personalize their R9s Valentine Red Edition with laser-printed engraving (max of 15 characters) on the back of their phones with the choice of Chinese or English characters. Do note that online pre-orders will only start after February 7. 2017.

We were fairly impressed with OPPO's R9s, but its limited color options didn't allow it to stand out from the crowd. Fortunately, there's now an R9s Valentine Red edition.

If its name didn't clue you in, the R9s Valentine Red edition is being released in conjunction with Valentine's Day. And while it may come in striking new color, its innards remain the same - there's a 16MP shooter at the rear with an aperture of f/1.7, while at the front, there's another 16MP camera, but with a slightly smaller aperture for f/2.0. Other features include a home button with integrated fingerprint scanner and a 3,100mAh battery that supports VOOC Flash Charge.

Pricing and availability remain to be confirmed.
