Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has launched its next flagship phones, the Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro in the Indian market and the sale has already begun.
As can be made out from the nomenclature of the two variants, the Oppo F9 Pro will come with better features or higher specs while the other phone will be deemed the standard or regular variant.
The Oppo F9 is a 6.3-inch display phone. The Full HD+ display with a screen resolution of 2,340x1,080pixels is complemented by a bezel-free screen with just the notch in it and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. This means that the screen to body ratio is 90.8% and the pixel density is a sound 401ppi.
The processor is also common to both the variants and it will be the MediaTek Helio P60. Its an octa core processor that clocks a speed of 2GHz. The Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro will run on the Android Oreo version 8.1 with the Color OS version 5.2 riding on it as the UI skin. The RAM will be 4GB on the Oppo F9 and 6GB on the Oppo F9 Pro while the internal storage will be 64GB on both. The provision for a microSD card to take the storage up to 256GB will also form part of the specs.
The variation comes in the camera section with the front selfie camera fitted with a 25MP sensor in the Oppo F9 Pro and a 16MP sensor in the Oppo F9. The rear dual camera setup is however common to both the variants with 16MP+2MP sensors in it.
The battery is 3500mAh. Oppo has included its in-house VOOC flash charger only in the Oppo F9 Pro variant and not on the other. This technology allows the phone to retain a 5-minute charge to run the phone for 2 hours. This is a dual SIM phone with a dedicated slot for the microSD card.
The two variants will be available in 3 colors; Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple.
The Oppo F9 will be sold on Flipkart at Rs 19,990 while the Oppo F9 Pro will cost Rs 23,990.
