Two Chinese phone manufacturers, Oppo and OnePlus are expected to announce their latest smartphones in the market within some few days or weeks from now. OnePlus will possibly announce its 2018 flagship device known as the OnePlus 6, while there has been so much speculations about the forthcoming Oppo R15 from the other Chinese brand.
There has been several leaks of both smartphones in these few days, and going by the rumour, you should be expecting both smartphones to feature the Apple iPhone X-like notch at the front. OnePlus has copied several designs from Oppo in the past, as the similarity between OnePlus 5T and Oppo R11s is just so obvious.
While there has been several render leaks and listings around the Oppo R15, some leaked videos have also highlighted the design and functionalities of the smartphone. The leaked video below showed off the multitasking features of the Oppo R15. In it, you can see the popular apps present on one side of the notch, while the other side, you will find shortcuts such as screenshots and “Do Not Disturb” mode.
In the 9 seconds video shown above, you can see a game being played in the forthcoming Oppo R15. When the user taps on either side of the notch at the top, the above-mentioned apps pop up. This feature seems to be working even when the game is played in the background. This is another example of how the notch design can be used apart from just introducing a full-screen display.
Meanwhile, another leaked 30 seconds official video you can watch below, reveals the Oppo R15 will feature a bezel-less display and will also come in Red and Black colour variants. The Oppo R15 is also expected to sport a 6.28 inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels, and 18:9 aspect ratio with thin bezels.
As we approach the launch date, see the full specifications of the Oppo R15 below.
