Oppo F9 Pro will be officially launched in India on August 21 (tomorrow), but you do not need to wait for the event to know what the new mid-ranger will look like or its key specs. Several reliable leaks and official teasers from the Chinese company have already revealed most of the details about the upcoming smartphone. In this article, you will find all the details revealed by rumors, leaks and official info in a complete OPPO F9 Pro specs rumor roundup.
As you can see in the below official video published by the BBK-owned company, Oppo F9 Pro will share the same design with the already announced F9 for the Vietnamese market. Indeed, it is speculated that it will just be a re-branded version of the F9 launched in Vietnam, for the Indian market, more or less like the famous Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro which is called Redmi Note 5 in the Chinese market (while the standard version of the Redmi Note 5 in India is actually the device known as Redmi 5 Plus in China and the global market).
It will have a stunning waterdrop display with a minimal notch just like the recently unveiled Oppo R17 housing the front camera only. There will be incredibly thin bezels on the sides, an almost nonexistent upper bezel with the earpiece, and a very narrow chin. The back side will be made of glass with a prismatic effect and gradient hues color options available. The color variants which will be launched in India will be Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue, and Starry Purple.
Oppo F9 Pro Specs and Features
One of the most impressive features of the Oppo F9 Pro will be VOOC flash charge, an outstanding fast-charging technology which will be able to provide about two hours of talk time with just five minutes of charging. The handset will also pack an above-average 3500 mAh battery (with AI-backed battery management to make it last more) which should be able to reach the end of the day with decent amount of charge remaining. The presence of its big battery will also be possible thanks to the wide 6.3-inch display. It will show images at a Full HD+ 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood, there will be an upper-midrange hardware side composed of an octa-core Helio P60 SoC by MediaTek running at a max frequency of 2 GHz, up to 6 GB of RAM (there will also be a cheaper 4 GB RAM version) and 64 GB of internal storage expandable with a micro SD up to 256 GB. On the rear side, there will be a dual camera setup with resolutions of 16 and 2 MP and with a f/1.8 aperture. The front camera will have a 25 MP resolution, f/2.0 aperture and it will be AI-backed. It will obviously come with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, customized with Color OS 5.2 user interface. In the software, there will be Google Lens, an advanced video editing tool, and even an emergency SOS feature
Launch event date, time and price
