Oppo R9s Appears with Android 7.1.1 Nougat Running the Show – Update Coming Soon

Oppo R9s

Not so long ago, the Oppo F3 Plus appeared on benchmarking platform GFXBench showing off a new Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS running the show.

Apparently, it seems this is Oppo’s take on the new update, choosing to skip the original Android 7.0 Nougat update and instead, rolling out the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat to its eligible devices. In a separate report, the Oppo R9s has also made an appearance online with the newer Android 7.1.1 Nougat running the show, but this one is still in beta.

Released in October 2016, the Oppo R9s is the company’s budget phone and it came in with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow running the show. If this new report is to be believed, the R9s and R9s Plus should receive the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat possibly before the end of this month.

The latest development about the Oppo R9s comes from one user who posted photos of the handset with the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat running the show. Since the OS running on the device is still in the trial stage, it means Oppo is getting ready to roll out the OS to the rest of the public in the coming weeks.

Interestingly, the same Oppo R9s device appeared online towards the end of last month, but this time it was Android 7.0 Nougat running the show. In short, it is hard to believe the latest screenshots regarding the newer v7.1.1.

As noted earlier, the Oppo R9s is a 2016 release. At the time, it came with Android Marshmallow out of the box, a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED screen with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 on top, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, Adreno 506 GPU and a RAM of 4GB. The storage is amazing at 64GB and if not enough, feel free to get a microSD card of up to 256GB and insert it into the slot, although this same slot can also be used as SIM 2 slot.

Being a selfie-centered brand, the Oppo R9s comes with a 16MP lens on the front. This lens has an aperture of f/2.0, but this is bettered by the f/1.7 aperture used on the 16MP lens on the back of the phone. The main sensor also comes with support for HDR, face detection, panorama and up to 4K video recording at 30 frames per second. To keep it going is a 3000mAh battery unit that is charged via microUSB port and has support for fast charging technology.
