Established as one of the top smartphone manufacturers in India, Oppo announced the R15 Pro earlier today. The phone is not to be confused with its higher-end cousin, the R17 Pro.

Starting on the outside, the R15 Pro features dual rear 16- and 20-megapixel cameras and a 20MP selfie shooter. As with a growing number of smartphones, the R15 Pro supports AI scene recognition. The phone can identify 120 scenes and automatically tweak the camera settings to hopefully take sharp pictures.

Meanwhile, the front camera supports several portrait modes and Oppo’s AI beauty mode. We actually tolerated the beauty mode on the R17 Pro, so the same might be said of the mode on the R15 Pro.

The R15 Pro also sports a headphone jack and USB Type-C port at the bottom, a fingerprint sensor around back, and a 6.28-inch AMOLED display with a 2,280 x 1,080 resolution up front.

Under the hood, the R15 Pro features Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a 3,430mAh battery that supports Oppo’s fast VOOC charging. Unfortunately, the phone runs the older Android 8.1 Oreo instead of the newer Android 9 Pie.

Indian residents can pick up the R15 Pro from Amazon India for 25,990 rupees (~$368). The phone is available in Cosmic Purple and Ruby Red.
