OPPO launched the latest product F9 in Malaysia. The F9 marks a new starting point on OPPO’s transformative journey. As the sixth generation of OPPO F series, in addition to the well-known great selfie function, the F9 has made breakthroughs in fast charging, dual rear cameras, and appearance.
Breakthrough in charging: Rapid Charge with VOOC
For the first time ever, OPPO F9 ships with VOOC Flash Charge. This technology,independently developed by OPPO, has a charging speed which is four times faster than general charging at 5V1A. For those in a hurry, a quick 5-minute charge is enough to maintain 2 hours of talk time.
In addition to increasing the charging speed by four times, VOOC also boasts an intelligent five-layer protection system from the adaptor to the port and interior of the phone. VOOC has replaced the voltage reducing circuit with a MCU, effectively preventing the mobile phone from overheating while charging, making VOOC a cool fast charging tech. You can also use your phone while keeping the fast charging speed, which high voltage fast charge cannot do.
Breakthrough Design: Waterdrop Screen with Gradient colors
As an increasingly popular smartphone brand among young people, OPPO taps into their taste in fashion and style to design products with mass appeal. OPPO has three gradient color combinations- Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple. The Gradient Spraying Technology and “Frame Gradient” tech used by OPPO provides a perfect combination of gradient design on the back and the user a more unified viewing experience. In the sunlight, the F9 shines like a crystal gem and flowing water in motion. The color design aesthetics of the OPPO F9 reflects both OPPO’s design ideology and insights into what aesthetics appeals to young consumers around the globe.
Another prominent design upgrade in this model is the Waterdrop Screen, which is inspired by a water drop that is about to fall.
The F9 comes with an impressive 6.3-inch bezel-less screen that features a resolution of 2340×1080 FHD+ and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, a super-high screen-to-body ratio of 90.8%.
Breakthrough in photography: From Selfie to Portrait Art
OPPO’s legacy of strong photography which has seen them become the ‘Selfie Expert’ is even further enhanced with OPPO F9. Now, OPPO has begun to focus on capturing all round beauty. For the first time, OPPO F series is equipped with AI-enhanced dual rear cameras (16MP + 2MP). The cooperation of the two cameras helps the processor calculate the depth of field and achieve a great Bokeh effect. When it comes to shooting with the rear camera, F9 is equipped with dual cameras to catch every moment. 16 independent and 800 combined scenes can be recognized by AI Scene Recognition.
OPPO F9’s 25MP front-facing camera also does not disappoint. The re-invented ‘Sensor-HDR’ technology dramatically improves backlight Selfies and allows users to check high dynamic exposure live effects in real-time. Meanwhile, OPPO F9 can now accurately collect 296 feature points for each subject, referencing them against its massive database of facial images, analyzing features before making enhancements, customized for each subject. The AI Beauty Technology can provide users with 8 million of different beautification effects in that personalized – selfies are more attractive while keeping the natural look of each human subject.
Additionally, F9 supports multiple interesting camera features such as AR Stickers, vivid mode and slow motion video.
Breakthrough in experience: ColorOS 5.2 AI Intuitive System
