Oppo's first UHD Blu-ray will reportedly be the $499 UDP-203

Oppo has yet to officially announce it but reporter Chris Heinonen of Reference Home Theater has shared photos, model name, price, and estimated launch date of Oppo’s first UHD Blu-ray player. The player will reportedly be called UDP-203 and sell for $499.

Samsung and Panasonic were the first to launch UHD Blu-ray players but Sony, Oppo and others opted to wait, as reported by FlatpanelsHD in January. Yesterday, Sony announced its first player and details on an upcoming player from Oppo have now emerged, too.

Oppo has not made an official announcement but the player was apparently previewed to select journalists at the Cedia Expo. Chris Heinonen, Editor of Reference Home Theater, says that it will be called UDP-203 and sell for $499, which is a surprisingly aggressive price.

He also shared photos of the player that looks like a classic Oppo design. There is a screen in the center, which will apparently be based on an OLED display, according to a now-deleted post on Oppo’s Facebook page.

In one of the photos you can see that it will feature 2 HDMI output ports (one for video, one for audio), 1 HDMI input port, 7.1 analog outputs, 2 USB 3.0 ports, optical and coaxial digital audio ports, an RS-232C interface, and an Ethernet port. It is also said to support 5GHz WiFi.

The player obviously conforms to the UHD Blu-ray specification, meaning support for 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR (High Dynamic Range), and wide color gamut (up to Rec.2020). It will support the HDR10 format but does not appear to support Dolby Vision (Dolby’s premium HDR format), which makes us wonder why Oppo has opted not to release it earlier.

The launch date for Oppo UDP-203 has not been confirmed but Oppo is apparently hoping to release it later this year, Heinonen said. He adds that it will sell for $499.
