Oppo has scheduled a launch event in India on 21st August and has sent out media invites for the same. At the launch event, the company is expected to launch the Oppo F9 Pro smartphone in the Indian market.
The F9 Pro will be first launched in Vietnam and the Philippines as the Oppo F9 on 15th August. The specs and features of the device have already been listed online.
The phone features a “waterdrop” notched 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with 2280 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the device is powered by the 12nm MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core processor paired with ARM Mali-G2 MP3 GPU.
It will be available in two variants — 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB onboard storage. There’s also a microSD card slot for further expanding the phone’s storage expansion up to 256GB. However, in India, only the 6GB RAM variant is expected to launch.
