Oppo to unveil Oppo F9 Pro with Waterdrop screen in India on August 21
Oppo to unveil Oppo F9 Pro with waterdrop Screen in India on August 21. Oppo has started sending out invites for an event on August 21 in Mumbai, India. The event will see the launch of the Oppo F9 Pro, a brand new smartphone that touts an edge-to-edge Waterdrop screen, dual cameras and VOOC flash charge, among other things. Although the company hasn’t explicitly mentioned the name of the phone on the invite, the F9 Pro has been teased and revealed quite a bit over the past several days.
The Oppo F9 Pro is being launched with the tagline “Breaking New Vision” thanks to a full-screen display and a notch that Oppo is referring to as a Waterdrop screen. This is because the notch in question is in the shape of a water droplet and is as small as the notch on the Essential Phone. Oppo has already posted tons of teasers and more recently a video of the F9 Pro, giving us a pretty good look at the design of the phone.
The upcoming smartphone touts a 90.8 per cent screen-to-body ratio, which is a little less compared to the Find X that was launched in the country last month. Oppo has also revealed that the F9 Pro will come with a gradient colour design on the back and in three options – Starry Purple, Sunrise Red and Twilight Blue. Additionally, the Red and Blue colours will also get diamond-shaped patterns on the back, while the Purple colour option will have a star-studded pattern to reflect the night sky.
The Oppo F9 Pro will bring a dual rear camera setup, but the configuration of it is still unknown. The company has, however, revealed that the front camera housed in the notch will have a 25-megapixel sensor with AI support. Additionally, the camera will support what the company calls Sensor HDR, which is a feature that is found in the Oppo F7. Oppo has also confirmed VOOC flash charge support that will give you 2 hours of talktime with just 5 minutes of charge. As for the rest of the internals, things are still a bit of a mystery.
