Oppo F9 is officially announced, arrives with a 3500 mAh battery and VOOC flash chargingAs promised, today Oppo unveiled the Oppo F9 in the Philippines and Vietnam. The device packs a 3500 mAh battery and the presentation stresses strongly on the VOOC flash charging technology that's at the base of OnePlus's DASH charge. This tech gives you 2 hours of talk time only after 5 minutes of charging. It is supported by more than 500 patents and offers a low voltage-high current charging solution. The 5 levels of protection layering from the adapter to the port and the interior of the phone prevents the device from overheating and ultimately extends battery life. Oppo F9 is available in three gradient colours - Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple. As we expected, the "waterdrop screen" does not mean the device is water-repellent but refers to the design of the unit. It creates a "revolution in industrial design" due to its "breakthrough structure backed by 46 patents". The LTPS panel has a 6.3-inch diagonal size, an FHD+ resolution, and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. If has a typical brightness of 450 nits. The notch of the display looks like a part of a water drop, indeed, and houses the front-facing camera of the device. Oppo F9 is the first model from Oppo's F-series to feature two rear cameras. The main camera uses a 5-element lens and a 16MP sensor while the auxiliary one - a 3-element lens and a 2MP sensor. It uses AI for portraits and scene recognition. The selfie camera packs a 25MP sensor and supports HDR plus AI portraits and AI Beauty. It is aided by a front LED flash. The model is equipped with a Helio P60 chipset combined with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It runs on ColorOS 5.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Pricing and availability are TBA.Source
