OPPO has released its latest and greatest in the mid-upper range R series. The R15 and R15 Pro join the notch club with a 6.28-inch, 19:9 AMOLED screen and all new Sony camera sensor.
These phones retail for $659 and $779 respectively. I know I have said it before about OPPO, but these punch well above their weight.

As such, we continue to invest in our camera technologies to provide them with an exceptional photography experience, which will have them taking shots like a pro”, said Michael Tran, Executive Director at OPPO.
They are almost full screen with a small notch at the top and a tiny bottom bezel of course.
