Oppo R15 and R15 Dream Mirror Edition announced: Specs, price, images and more

Featuring a glass back and a metal frame and rear-positioned fingerprint scanners, Oppo's new phones both have notched 6.28-inch OLED displays with a 1:2.1 screen ratio and a resolution of 1,080 x 2,280 pixels. The company's made a decision to go full speed ahead with an iPhone X-inspired full-screen notch design, but has kept the dual cameras at the back horizontal rather than vertical.

The Oppo R15 and Oppo R15 Dream Mirror Edition both have AI Intelligent Scene Recognition technology that is touted to recognise 16 scenes and 120 multi-scene combinations. Both the OPPO R15 and R15 Dream Mirror Edition will become available in China on April 1, and they're already available for a pre-order in the country.

As for the R15 Dream Mirror Edition, it is a different device altogether despite carrying the same display and 20MP front camera from the standard R15 model as well as identical amount of RAM and internal storage.

In the photography department, Oppo R15 DME also has a dual-camera setup of 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensors with f/1.7 aperture. Under its hood, the smartphone makes use of an octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 12nm processor paired with ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space, which can be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card.

The promotional image was spotted by Brick Fan and shows Lego versions of the superhero family and confirms a 2018 release date. This also marks the first time that a Pixar movie has gotten the LEGO video game treatment, so definitely cool to see.

In terms of the software, the Oppo R15 and R15 Dream Mirror Edition run the company's custom-made ColorOS built on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. The glass variant of the OPPO R15 Dream Mirror Edition comes in Red, and is priced at 3,299 Yuan ($520), while the Ceramic Black Edition of the phone has a price tag of 3,499 Yuan ($552). Towards the front, the device includes a 20MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS and USB Type-C. It will be available in color like White, Red and Purple.

In any event, it's unlikely that the West will see the phone, but do expect Oppo stablemate OnePlus to grab a few features for its OnePlus 6. The report mentioned that Oppo's VOOC flash charge can give a talk-time of 2 hours after charging for 5 minutes.

That is (more than likely) your OnePlus 6.

On the other hand, the Oppo R15 Dream Mirror Edition has a Snapdragon 660 SoC, a 3400mAh battery, and a 16MP + 20MP twin lens setup at the rear. Fortunately, OnePlus is expected to swap that chipset out with a Snapdragon 845.
