Oppo F9 Expected Specifications, Features, Price, Launch Date

OPPO is an innovative manufacturer that launched its mid-range F-series line-up two years ago. The Chinese phone manufacturer keeps its F-series photography focus and is known for its selfie-centric devices. The company launches F-series smartphones in a 6-month cycle and is set to launch a new one soon. The OPPO F9 is the successor to the OPPO F7, launched in March this year. The company will also launch a higher variant called OPPO F9 Pro with slightly more advanced and powerful specifications than the regular variant.

The OPPO F9 and the F9 Pro recently received  Bluetooth certification (version 4.2) on July 18 with model numbers CPH 1823, CPH 1825, and CPH 188. The device with model number CPH1823 will be called OPPO F9 Pro, while the other two will be regular variants with different memory configurations. OPPO also launched a teaser revealing some key details about the optics department. Unfortunately, the teaser didn’t mention the launch date or other specs.

OPPO F9 and F9 Pro Specifications & Features

OPPO F9 sports the same Bluetooth module as OPPO A3, OPPO A 73s, OPPO F7, OPPO F7 Youth, OPPO R15, and Realme 1, which hints that it will be powered by the same MediaTek Helio P60 chipset (MT 6771). Other specs were not mentioned except for cellular connectivity standards like GSM/GPRS, WCDMA, and FDD-LTE.

The teaser revealed that the OPPO F9 will sport a dual camera setup on the rear stacked horizontally with an LED flash in the top left corner. This is a big upgrade from the single rear camera on the F9. Also, there is a possibility that the front will sport a dual camera setup, too.

Being a selfie-centric device, we can expect it to come with AI-packed beauty-enhancing features like AI Beauty, scene detection, and object detection. Like the F7, it will have gender and age detection and self-learning capabilities from user inputs. There will be more Augmented reality stickers and other features.

OPPO F9 and F9 Pro Price and Launch Date

Since the OPPO F7 made it to international markets, including India, we can expect the OPPO F9 and the F9 Pro to do too. The timeline indicates the OPPO F9 will be released in October or November, but rumors indicate that the company will launch it early in August. Now, seeing if there is a major upgrade other than the optics department will be interesting.

As for the pricing, the OPPO F7 came at a price tag of $320 and $291 for the higher and lower variants, respectively. We expect it to be priced similarly since it is a direct successor with a very small time gap.

We expect the company to give an official word soon. The smartphone will turn up in benchmarking sites as we approach the launch date, revealing other specifications.
