Back in March this year, OPPO launched the OPPO F7 and F7 128GB smartphones in India. Unlike the China-exclusive OPPO R15 smartphones, the F7 smartphones came with mediocre specifications. While the device came with a modern looking notch display, it only featured a single camera on the rear. Now, the latest news suggests the company to soon launch next-gen smartphones in the mid-range F-series. While there is no official confirmation, the company will be launching the OPPO F9 and F9 Pro smartphones in August.
OPPO F9 & F9 Pro with Dual Rear Cameras to Launch in August
(July 23rd, 2018)
The company will be mainly selling the OPPO F9 smartphones in India and Southeast Asian markets. From the teaser image, the device will be coming with dual cameras on the rear. The devices are also now Bluetooth certified and will be coming Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. We hope the company includes the fingerprint sensor on both these upcoming devices. While the earlier launched OPPO F7 smartphones came with fingerprint sensors, the Realme 1 and flagship OPPO Find X only has face unlock option.
Just like the OPPO F7, the upcoming OPPO F9 smartphones might also come with glass back body. The OPPO F7 sports 6.2″ IPS display with Full HD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. It comes powered by 12nm MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core processor coupled Mali G71 GPU. The device came with the latest Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Talking about the cameras, it sports 25MP selfie camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture. On the rear, the OPPO F7 offers a single 16MP camera with f/1.8 aperture.
With the OPPO F7 devices, the company has included AI-based camera features. As there is no official confirmation, take these details with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
OPPO F9 Pro to Sport New Waterdrop Screen & Dual Rear Cameras
A week after the OPPO F9 and F9 Pro are leaked online, the company now officially teased the OPPO F9 Pro smartphone. The OPPO India’s Twitter handle says “Explore a brand new vision with #OPPOF9Pro.” From the short clip, we can find the small V-shaped notch on the top. This V-shaped notch is one of the few designed which OPPO applied for patents in China. With the Find X, the company introduced a complete bezel-less display with 93.8% screen-to-body ratio.
The company is calling this V-shaped notch display as a waterdrop screen. It comes with glass back body and sports dual cameras on the rear. Just like the earlier launched OPPO F-series devices, the upcoming OPPO F9 and F9 Pro will also come with mid-range specifications. The vertically stacked dual cameras on the rear and notch display on the front make the Android devices look similar. With the V-shaped notch display, the F9 Pro will surely stand out from the crowd.
It will also increase the screen-to-body ratio. The device should be running on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with ColorOS 5.1 laid on top. With the F9 Pro, the company is also introducing the VOOC flash charge technology in the F-series devices. It is said to give 2 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging. The company might also ditch the fingerprint sensor on this device and will completely depend on the face unlock feature.
Latest: OPPO Teases F9 Sunrise Red Smartphone with Patterned Back & Dual Cameras
Earlier this week, OPPO posted teaser image of the OPPO F9 Pro smartphone. The company is expected to launch the OPPO F9 and F9 Pro smartphones by the end of this month. The OPPO F9 Pro is confirmed to come with VOOC Flash Charge support that can give 2 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging. The device also comes with an all-new waterdrop screen with a V-shaped notch on the top.
Now, the OPPO F9 teaser image reveals the complete back design of the device. The device is mentioned to come in Sunrise Red color which is mentioned to be a mixture of Purple and Red colors. Just like the OPPO F7, the upcoming OPPO F9 also comes with a patterned back body, but the design looks different. It comes with a metal frame and sports 2.5D curved glass on the front and rear.
While we expected the company to ditch the fingerprint sensor, the latest image confirms the presence of the fingerprint sensor on this device. Both the OPPO F9 and F9 Pro comes with dual rear cameras and the design also looks exactly similar. The power button is placed on the right edge and the volume rocker is on the left edge.
