Announcement. OPPO K9s is almost a twin of yesterday's Realme Q3s, also gaming and with weak cameras

Do you still remember that OPPO and Realme are related brands? If you suddenly forgot, then here's a reminder.


OPPO K9s

OPPO smartphone announced today in ChinaK9s. And, by a strange coincidence, it is almost an exact copy of the Realme Q3s smartphone announced yesterday in China. Only the main camera is slightly better, and the screen refresh rate, on the contrary, is slightly lower - 120 Hz versus 144 Hz. Well, the shell. There was realme UI 2.0, it became ColorOS 11.2. I do not see any other differences. Even the weight and dimensions are the same.


Realme Q3s

Chipset.Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, on which such serious smartphones as Honor 50 Pro, Samsung Galaxy M52 5G, Xiaomi Civi are made. Smartphones are not the cheapest, to put it mildly. This chipset is not a flagship, but for half a million points in AnTuTu it is gaining confidently. In fact, this is about the level of the flagships of three years ago. And this level, even now, with a margin is enough for about everything.

There is a lot of memory, but not excessive.6 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage. Realme also has a 256GB version, but not right there. Nothing is said about memory card support. In theory, it should be, since Realme has it. But it is not exactly.

The strongest point of a smartphone is its screen.Which allows you to rank OPPO K9s as a gaming device. Large, 6.59 ″. (Formally, Realme Q3s has a slightly different diagonal, 6.6 ″, but you know, this is purely a marketing error in rounding off). High resolution - 1080 × 2412 (401 ppi). And an ultra-high refresh rate of 120Hz.

The battery is capacious, 5000 mAh. Fast charging (but not super fast) - 30 W.

The cameras, like in Realme, were assigned the role of Cinderella.A modest front camera with a resolution of 16 MP. Behind the budget trio 64 + 2 + 2 MP from the main camera, macro camera and depth sensor. The island with cameras is designed in the same original way as that of Realme.
Initially, it seems that there are four cameras there. But no. A flash is hidden in the fourth eye.

From unpleasant little things. As in Realme, there is no NFC module and no LTE Band 20. Otherwise, everything is fine. Sixth Wi-Fi, side fingerprint reader, standard audio output.

And about the price. OPPO K9s will cost ¥ 1,699 (₽18,800, $ 265) and ¥ 1,899 (₽21,100, $ 297) for versions 6 + 128 and 8 + 128 GB, respectively.

Realme Q3s is slightly cheaper, ¥ 1,499 (₽16,600, $ 234), ¥ 1,599 (₽17,700, $ 250) and ¥ 1999 (₽22,200, $ 312) for the 6 + 128, 8 + 128 and 8 + 256 GB versions, respectively.
