The R9 Plus comes equipped with a crisp new rear camera, which boasts a high resolution 16mp sensor and f/2 aperture, a stunning 6-inch Amoled display, and longer battery life thanks to its 4120 mAh battery.

The R9 Plus is ideally positioned as the ultimate media companion, Oppo believes. With 64GB storage as standard (plus the screen and the extended battery life) it is billed as the perfect device for streaming Netflix on the morning commute or reliving your captured moments on the vivid screen.

You can pick one up for $699 from JB Hi-Fi and Oppo's online store.
