Last week we saw some of the first smartphones to launch locally for the year 2017. They were upper mid-range devices from two of the top 5 smartphone manufacturers in the world and are designed to give you a flagship-like feel for below RM2,000. These devices are the Samsung Galaxy A (2017) and the OPPO R9s.
Despite the rather different marketing skews, these smartphones actually share quite a lot of specifications in common — chief of which are their selfie-centric 16-megapixel front-facing cameras and premium build. But which should you get if you wanted one?
Let’s see if we can help you decide.

Another year, another selfie-centric smartphone from OPPO. Only this time, they’re not calling it a Selfie Expert, probably because it doesn’t bear the F1 badge. Instead, OPPO Malaysia is shifting the focus onto their new R9s smartphone to the 16-megapixel primary camera at the back.
But, when the R9s also comes with a 16MP selfie shooter up front, you’re gonna wanna take some selfies too.
OPPO will be kicking the new year with the launch of the OPPO R9s. If you can’t wait to get your hands on one, OPPO Malaysia has started pre-orders where you can book your unit for RM100.
This could be the first local smartphone launch in 2017. OPPO Malaysia sent out invites for the R9s launch that’s happening next week on 5th January 2017.
After pushing its lineup of selfie smartphones, OPPO is now turning its attention to its main camera. Announced few months ago, the OPPO R9s promises great clarity with 16MP cameras for both front and back.
Prefer something darker? The OPPO F1s selfie expert is now available in Classic Black. Pre-orders are now open and it will be available in Malaysia on 17th December.
OPPO’s Selfie Expert F1 series of smartphones are designed with the selfie generation in mind. Today, the company launched its third Selfie Expert in Malaysia, the OPPO F1s.
OPPO’s new selfie expert smartphone, the F1s will be revealed next Wednesday on 3rd August. Ahead of its official announcement, Malaysian artist, Nora Danish has shown off the device in a behind the scenes video.
Despite not having a flagship device, OPPO has been doing rather well with its mid-range smartphones. Following its F1 and F1 Plus smartphones, OPPO is about to introduce its 3rd selfie expert, the OPPO F1s.
The OPPO F1 Plus FC Barcelona Edition is now available in Malaysia. To kick things off, an even special edition that’s signed by Messi, Neymar and Suarez will be up for auction.
