Although these two devices come with different price points, they provide similar features with the R15 Dream Mirror Edition packing more flagship features. Both phone models come with a 6.28-inch display with OLED panel and Full HD resolution. They also have a notch at the top, similar to the iPhone X, and a 19:9 aspect ratio that is a popular trend among mobile phones these days. The notch may discourage some buyers but it’s a trend many phones are going for. It also sports powerful cameras – two at the back and one in front.
Oppo R15 and the R15 Pro
The Oppo R15 runs on Mediatek MT6771 chip with 6GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage which can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. For the price point, the specs are pretty competitive. The phone gets its juice from a 3450 mAh battery which is slightly bigger than the R15 Pro with 3,400 mAh. Furthermore, the Oppo R15 also features fast-charging technology that fills its battery with juice in less time than some other mid-range phones on the market. The dual cameras come with 16-MP and 5-MP sensors while the front shooter is loaded with a 20-MP sensor.
The Oppo R15 Pro, on the other hand, houses a Snapdragon 660 chip coupled with a 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage which is expandable up to 256 GB using a microSD card. As mentioned, its battery capacity is smaller compared to the core R15, which is unusual for a “Pro” variant. In addition, the R15 Pro packs better dual cameras with 16-MP and 20-MP sensors and a 20-MP selfie snapper.
