OPPO F9 goes on sale today via Flipkart for Rs 19,990


The OPPO F9 that succeeded the OPPO F7 in a very short time in India will be available to buy online from today. The handset will be sold exclusively on Flipkart as well as retail stores across the country for a starting price of Rs 19,990. The OPPO F9 comes in two colours – Mist Black and Stellar Purple.

Announced before the OPPO F9 Pro, the F9 comes with the same MediaTek Helio P60 chipset that sits in the OPPO F7. The display, however, receives a change in design ridding itself of the old notch. The OPPO F9 has a 6.3-inch Full-HD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio due to the water-drop notch on it. There’s only one version – 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage with expandability up to 256GB.

It’s got three slots which means there is one dedicated to the microSD card. The F9 has dual rear cameras – a 16MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 2MP sensor with a f/2.4 aperture which can record slow-mo at 120fps up to 720p. The front has a single 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and HDR. The OPPO F9 has dual SIM dual 4G VoLTE, micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack too.

The software side of things is run by Android 8.1 with ColorOS 5.2 with power being drawn from a 3,500mAh battery. There’s no VOOC Charge though as it’s only on the F9 Pro which costs Rs. 23,990.
