The OPPO F9 has officially landed in the Philippines. Unveiled during the grand launch at Shangri-la at the Fort, the OPPO F9 has made breakthroughs in fast charging, dual rear cameras, and design. The event was also graced by OPPO’s celebrity endorsers Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto and influencers Robi Domingo, Glaiza De Castro, Sanya Lopez and Gretchen Ho.
Oppo tried to veer away from the notch by minimizing it to almost just as big as the camera. Dubbed as the “Waterdrop” screen, the display is a 6.3-inch FHD panel.
Inside the Oppo F9, we see the same processor as the F7, Helio P60 chip. There’s 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB storage expandable with a microSD card. Another noticeable change woul be the brand’s latest ColorOS 5.2.
The OPPO F9 has a dual camera set up at the rear, consisting of a 16MP + 2MP f/1.85 with Dual LED Flash. The secondary 2MP sensor function is for the depth of field. Known for being a selfie phone, the latest addition to the Oppo F-series is composed of a 25MP f/2.0 selfie camera.
The biggest change we see is the addition of Oppo’s VOOC charging, allowing the Oppo F9 to charge the 3,500mAh battery to be charged within 5 minutes giving the user 2 hours of talk time.
