Oppo refreshes their Oppo R1 smartphone, having unveiled it all the way in South East Asia in the middle of this week in the form of the Oppo R1L. While it is considered to be a refreshed handset, plenty about the smartphone has more or less remained the same, including retaining the 5” display alongside 720 x 1280 resolution, although the quad-core MediaTek silicon has been replaced with a quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU.
In addition, the smartphone will also feature a metallic body that sports an extremely slim 7.1mm thin footprint. Keeping it company would be 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory, although there is no more way to expand upon that since there will be no microSD memory card slot that comes with it. The rear camera has received an upgrade however, hitting 13MP image quality now from 8MP. As for its pricing, it ought to retail for approximately $370 after conversion.
It looks like the UEFA Champions League has kicked off earlier this week, and Real Madrid have let loose their frustrations on the continental stage with poor FC Basel being on the receiving end of five goals. It is not a good day for my favorite team Arsenal either, as they were on the losing end of business to boot. Ah well, at least we know that there is a new edition of the flagship HTC smartphone, where it is called the HTC One (M8) Champions League Collector’s Edition.
Everything about this handset is similar to that of the vanilla version of the flagship device, other than the fact that it will feature the UEFA Champions League logo engraved on its back, in addition to another engraving of the iconic Champions League trophy that teams have sought after to be the champions of Europe each year. It seems that this special collector’s edition handset can only be picked up as a prize in a competition, bummer.
