OPPO have announced the launch of the rather catchy named “R819” which I hope isn’t its final name, the R819 is apparently one of the thinnest and lightest smartphones in the world. Weighing in at just 110 grams, the R819 packs a sharp display, long-lasting battery life, and wide aperture camera into an ultra-thin 7.3 mm frame.
The R819 is available online for pre-order today and ships early September, although us Europeans will probably have to wait for Oppo Find Style to ship them to us first. The above shot shows a Google Play Edition look, who knows what this device will offer.
The R819 specifications are as follows:
– Network GSM:850/900/1800/1900MHz
– Processor 28nm 1.2GHz MT6589 Quad-core
– Display 4.7” 720P HD Display 312 PPI IPS (1280×720 pixels)
– Memory 16GB ROM, 1GB RAM
– Camera Rear: 8 megapixel Sony Exmor BSI with LED flash and dedicated ISP
– Front: 2 megapixel
– Connectivity 800.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
– Features Android 4.2.1 (Jellybean)
– Dual SIM card support
– Wide angle front facing camera
– Battery 2000mAh
So spec wise it’s more mid range than the Find 5. Although no doubt this will be a whole lot more affordable.
SHENZHEN – August 19, 2013 – OPPO today announced the launch of the R819, one of the thinnest and lightest smartphones in the world. Weighing in at just 110 grams, the R819 packs a sharp display, long-lasting battery life, and wide aperture camera into an ultra-thin 7.3 mm frame.
Let Nothing Weigh You Down

R819 was built to simplify and improve your life; to offer you an impossibly thin and light smartphone without sacrificing the craftsmanship or functionality you’ve come to expect from an OPPO device.
Let Convenience Compromise Nothing
Using this smartphone is simpler than ever before. Gestures let you control waking, answering and silencing your device with the slightest movements. You can wirelessly view your screen’s content on any other TV, tablet or device with Wi-Fi display and DLNA. And the 2000 mAh battery supports a long-lasting charge to get more out of your phone. R819 also has dual SIM card support so you can use two numbers at once and get more use out of just one device.
The R819 is outfitted with an f/2.0 aperture 8 megapixel Sony Exmor BSI back facing camera for great shots in low light conditions. The dedicated Image Signal Processor enhances the color of all of your pictures making them more vivid and lifelike. And the front-facing camera has an incredible 88 degree viewing angle to capture more background than ever before.
Your Device. Your Choice.
OPPO believes in having the freedom to run the operating system of your choice to get the experience you want from your R819. Use the original ROM, or install OPPO’s Color ROM, which will soon be available, for a completely fresh take on Android that was developed with OPPO fans and is frequently updated. R819 can also run Stock Android, the Android experience as Google intended, for a fast, smooth user experience with familiar Google apps.
You use your phone every day. It should be able to do everything you need with style, and without ever getting in the way. The R819 offers a stunning screen, great camera and a long battery life. A unique fusion of function and design, the R819 is convenience without compromise.
