OPPO has released a new variant of OPPO R15 dubbed as OPPO R15 Nebula Special Edition with blue-pink-purple color gradient design. The new design is a joint work of Egyptian industrial designer Karim Rashid and the OPPO design team. The phone even has the designer’s signature engraved on the back.
The Chinese manufacturers have adopted a new trend of hiring a high-profile designer to work on their phones. For instance, Xiaomi did the same earlier by working with a French designer Philippe Starck for its Mi MIX series.
OPPO R15 Nebula Special Edition
Talking about the OPPO R15 Nebula Special Design, the smartphone carries the same glass back design of the regular model but the color gradient design becomes the main highlight that can mesmerize you when tilted under light.
The inner specs of the new variant remain the same as those of the regular OPPO R15; that is a 6.28-inch Super-V display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, top notch with 19:9 aspect ratio and a Helio P60 processor paired with memory combo of 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage with an option to further expand up to 256GB by using a microSD card slot.
On the camera front, OPPO R15 Nebula Special Edition houses a dual camera setup on the rear with 16MP Sony IMX519 being the primary sensor and 5MP as the secondary one. While on the front, we have a 20MP selfie shooter that comes with Face Unlock, AI Smart Beauty and AI Wisdom Beauty features.
The smartphone is a dual SIM device by default (nano SIM only) that runs ColorOS 5.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The device packs a 3450mAh battery supported with VOOC fast charging features.
Pricing and Availability
The OPPO R15 Nebula Special Edition has been made available in China, priced at CNY 3199 (~$502, PKR 58,000) including a pair of JBL custom-made earphones that match the color of the phone. If you have no need for the earphones, you can pick it up for CNY2999 (~$470, PKR 54,400).
We have no official confirmation of OPPO R15 Nebula Special Edition making its way outside of China, as for now, but expect to see its global launch in coming weeks. Stay tuned…
