Ready for the upcoming Christmas and New Year parties? Of course, you are. For lovers, this is the time to spend precious time with your in-laws. For the singles out there, this is the last month of the year to find Mr. Right or Ms. Right (both if you're filled with unconditional love).
Now that you're all geared up for the last events of the year, there is a new upcoming smartphone this December to add in your arsenal for the picture-taking moments with your loved ones and soon-to-be loved ones. What smartphone? The Oppo R9s Plus.
About the Oppo R9s Plus
The Chinese mobile manufacturer Oppo will be launching the Oppo R9s Plus this December. The price of the device is CNY 3,499 ($507). Now you must be wondering why should you buy it instead of the Vivo V5 that is currently labeled as the number one selfie phone. Well, let's talk about its specs and features.
Specs and Features of the Oppo R9s Plus
Network. For its 2G band networks, it is GSM and CDMA. 3G band networks are HSDPA and CDMA. Lastly, for the 4G band network is LTE.

Memory. The card slot is microSD up to 256 GB (uses SIM 2 slot). The internal memory is 64 GB and 6 GB RAM. Personally, I fall easily for smartphones with high RAM. This is a big plus for me.
Camera. The front camera is 16 MP (f/2.0). The rear camera is also 16 MP (f/1.7), but with phase detection autofocus, OIS, and LED flash. For its video, it's 2160p@30fps and 1080p@30fps. As for its performance in low light conditions, I think a 16 MP camera can pretty much deliver positive results.
Battery. The battery is a non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery. Talk time, standby time, and music play is unknown.
Sound. For its alert types, vibration; MP3, WAV ringtones. It also has a loudspeaker and a 3.5 mm jack (Thank God!). It also has an active noise cancellation with dedicated mic.

For its browser, it feature's HTML5. Other features are fast battery charging, MP4/H.264 player, MP3/WAV/eAAC+/FLAC player, Document viewer, and Photo/video editor.
Most people these days use the rear camera for capturing high-quality images and videos, which can really be hard to use for selfies without using a mirror or asking someone to hold the camera for you. With the Oppo R9s Plus, I think you have the best of both worlds. Rear camera and front camera MPs are almost the same that you won't need to worry about choosing between the two cameras. Plus, it is 16 MP on each camera for CNY 3,499 ($507). That alone is pretty awesome.
