OPPO is not resting on its laurels after launching their flagship smartphone, the OPPO Find X. The OPPO F7 was a huge success in the mid-range segment last summer, and knowing how this (now) global brand works I expected that a newer F-series model will legitimately outshine its predecessor. The OPPO F9 is packed with several improved features that could make it the hottest mid-range smartphone in the market today.
The OPPO F9 looks even more attractive now thanks to its gradient colors available in Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple. Each angle gives the F9 a stunning image for everyone to envy. Another notable design upgrade in the F9 is the Waterdrop screen. Inspired by the water droplet, it allows users to have better viewing experience with an extremely high screen-to-body ratio of 90.8%. The OPPO F9 also has an impressive 6.3-inch bezel-less screen that features a resolution of 2340×1080 and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
The F9 upped the ante in the mid-range smartphone segment by including a 6GB RAM along with a 64GB Internal Storage with expandable memory. Also, the improved VOOC Fast Charging Technology found in the Find X is back in the F9. Charging the F9 for 5 minutes can let you have battery juice equivalent to 2 hours of talktime. OPPO finally included rear dual-cameras composed of 16 and 2 Megapixels to achieve a great bokeh effect. The phone is still equipped with AI for the rear and selfie cameras to achieve better photos.
