OPPO R1S spotted with Qualcomm Snapdragon inside

It was only the other day that the OPPO R1 was trying to make its way to the US and now it seems that a new variant is already available. It is also entirely possible that this LTE-capable OPPO R1S seen at TENAA is, in fact, the very smartphone spotted at the FCC, retrofitted with a Qualcomm SoC instead of the original MediaTek.

MediaTek’s new octa-core SoC is LTE capable, and heavy on specs

If you’ve been waiting patiently for octa-core, it won’t be long now. MediaTek has announced their latest offering, the MT6595. Though not the first octa-core processor we’ve seen on a device, it’s likely the one with the most attractive feature set. If they can keep ahead of the looming Qualcomm threat, MediaTek octa-core chipsets just might find their way onto more handsets.
