This may feel like a bit of a deja vu, but today is the official unveiling of the Oppo F9. It boasts a 90.8% screen to body ratio, its 19.5:9 screen covering most of the front and featuring a small V-shaped notch. That notch houses a 25MP selfie camera with hardware support for HDR.
The other camera, the one on the back, is a 16MP + 2MP dual shooter. The second sensor is used for bokeh effects while the 16MP sensor does most of the work (it has an f/1.8 aperture).
The Oppo F9 is powered by the Helio P60, which specializes in AI tasks. This extends to the camera, of course, with AI Beautification 2.1. The chipset is hooked up to 4GB of RAM (with a 6GB option) and 64GB storage. It runs Color OS 5.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
The screen measures 6.3 in diagonal and has a 2,340 x 1,080px resolution. Its a LTPS TFT panel that promises a solid 450 nits of brightness. No word on scratch resistance.
The F9 packs a relatively large 3,500mAh battery with VOOC flash charge support. The charging is done over an outdated microUSB port, though.
The back of the Oppo F9 has a gradient paint job with and is available in three colors: Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple. The first two feature a tessellated pattern while the Starry option is speckled with gold stars.
