Last month, along with the Oppo F9 Pro, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer had also announced the Oppo F9. The Oppo F9 is the same phone that was recently launched in China as Oppo A7x with a few changes in specifications.

While the Oppo F9 Pro soon went on sale in India after the announcement, the Oppo F9 was listed as ‘Coming Soon’. Now, Oppo has finally announced the availability of the phone in India.

Oppo has announced that the Oppo F9 will be available for purchase in India from September 15 through Flipkart and offline stores across the country. The phone is priced at Rs. 19,990 which roughly converts to $279. It’ll be available in two color options — Mist Black and Stellar Purple.

The phone packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot for expanding the storage capacity up to 256GB. Coming to the camera, there’s a dual-camera sensor with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. On the front side, the phone comes equipped with a 16-megapixel shooter for taking selfies.

There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and the company has decided to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack. Connectivity options on the device include Dual SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Bluetooth 4.2, FM radio, MicroUSB 2.0, and GPS.

 

 

It runs Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s own custom interface ColorOS 5.2 which comes with some advanced features such as Smart Bar, in order to offer a smoother experience to users. The phone is fuelled by a 3,500mAh battery but doesn’t come with the VOOC flash charging support.
