- Post Report, Kathmandu

Oppo has launched the latest addition to their popular F-series, the Oppo F9 in Nepal. The company has priced the device at Rs 41,590 for the 4GB variant and Rs45,590 for the 6GB variant.

According to the press release issued by the company, the Oppo F9 will be available in gradient colour combinations—Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple.

Equipped with a 6.3-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, the Oppo F9 is expected to provide an immersive and amazing visual experience. Powering the device is an octa-core processor and Android 8.1 Oreo running out of the box.

Photography duties are handled by dual cameras on the rear, a 16MP 2MP combination while the selfie camera is a

25MP unit. Another notable feature on the Oppo F9 is VOOC Flash Charging, expected to slash charging times, up to four times faster than a conventional 5V/1A charger. This method of fast charging comes with five layers of protection from the charging adapter to smartphone, including low temperature and voltage.  

The new Oppo F9 is billed as the first handset to sport a unique ‘waterdrop screen’ design. According to the company, the design allows the Oppo F9 to achieve a staggering 90.8 percent screen to body ratio. This is

made possible due to the notch, which houses components such as the camera, light sensor and more to give the smartphone a symmetrical look.

Oppo explained the design as two drops of water attracted to each other, hence the moniker ‘waterdrop screen’. The company is aiming to make the Oppo F9 more comfortable to hold while looking graceful, states the release.

Aside from the eye-catching design, Oppo claims to have designed the F9 with industry pioneering flip-LED technology, receiver TOP steering sound conduction, light sensation horn-shaped light conduction, gap approaching design and more.

CEO of Oppo Nepal Bobby Zhao was effervescent about the Oppo F9’s launch and said, “Delivering our valuable customers with the best solution for their requirement has always been our first priority at Oppo. With the F9 coming with VOOC Flash Charging, customers will be able to get two hours of talk time with just five minutes of charge.”

“We truly believe that we will succeed in our conquest of providing customers with the best solutions through technological innovations and advancement in a beautifully packaged design that is the Opp F9.”
