Is this the entry level model, like the BDP-103, and are there other upcoming models?

IMHO, there will always be more models in future, but the first is the KISS model - keep it simple, safe and make sure it works well.
Oppo players have evolved, from being merely packed with features, but won't last that long ala Oppo 83's power supply, to solid well built models with good parts ala BDP 105. This should take good things from their parts bin, and make a solid player, but let's wait for the proper specs first, and see what goes into this.
But I think it should be better made than the Samsung.

I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

I would assume they won't be taking anything away from the existing capabilities as its never happened in the past... See the comments ... http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/show/Oppo/Ultra_HD/4K/hdr/ultra-hd-bluray-player/price/cedia-2016/oppo-readies-udp203-4k-ultra-hd-bluray-player-for-499/35160

Lack of the Darbee feature is no big deal as I'm not sure it ever really gained that much momentum or everyone would be using it.

I hope they keep the streaming options over LAN too

But no Dolby Vision?
Let's hope it can come with a region free mod.. cheers
