OPPO F9 is the newest phone from OPPO to be released in Nepal. It was launched about a month ago. For those of you who don’t know, we are working on a review-like video of the OPPO F9. Don’t forget to check that out if you want to know more about this phone and decide if you should buy it or not. If you don’t want to wait for two or three days, read our OPPO F9 launch article, or the OPPO F9 vs Huawei Nova 3i article.
Previously, the OPPO F9 was available in only two colors: Sunrise Red and Twilight Blue. But recently OPPO posted on its Facebook page a gorgeous render of the new color that is going to come out, the Starry Purple.
In my opinion, this color looks the most luxurious of all three renditions of OPPO F9. It doesn’t have the same geometric shimmering pattern as the one found on the Red and Blue version, but it does look better overall. We don’t have the exact date when the new color is going to land, but OPPO’s PR said that it will be released within the first week of October.
With that said, all the three phones have the gorgeous waterdrop notch at the front that makes the screen look so much better. Also, their fast charging claim wasn’t a hoax. The phone charges 70% within 40 min. But once it hits the 90% mark, it charges a little slow, taking the total charging time from 0% to 100% to 1hr and 30min.
Now, I won’t give up many details about our testing here, you’ll have to wait for the video to know about that. What I will say is, if you are on the run for a functional smartphone that is not so expensive but doesn’t perform like a sloth either, then OPPO F9 should be high on your list.
