OPPO is getting ready to launch its next F and R series smartphones. Rumors suggest that the upcoming OPPO R17 will reportedly have a smaller notch as compared to that of OPPO R15 and OPPO R15 Dream Mirror Edition unveiled earlier this year. Meanwhile, OPPO Malaysia has shared an image of the upcoming OPPO F9 having a smaller notch in the middle of the front screen.


The OPPO F9 is said to be the successor of OPPO F7 that sacked the market with a gigantic 25MP front facing camera placed inside the top notch earlier this year. However, the teaser of the new entrant reveals to be equipped with a smaller notch than its predecessor.

Moreover, OPPO Malaysia claims in its tweet that the OPPO F9 will be equipped with a ‘water-drop screen’. Although, the new term is not so clear but we think that the company hints a possibility of introducing an IP67 rated chassis for the upcoming device.

Interestingly, OPPO claims that the OPPO F9 will be offering a screen-to-body ratio of 90.8% – only 2% below its current flagship device OPPO Find X that was made official in Pakistan last month with the highest price tag of Rs. 129,999.

OPPO F9 – Specifications and Availability

The arrival of the F9 series could be close at hand as F9 and F9 Pro smartphones were recently spotted with Bluetooth certification. The Chinese manufacturer may announce the OPPO F9 series in the current month in Malaysia followed by India as teased by OPPO India in their latest tweet.

Although, we don’t have any information about the specs sheet of the OPPO F9 as of now but we presume to see the following:

  • A MediaTek Helio P60 chipset
  • 4 GB RAM along with 64/128 GB storage options
  • A 6.3-inch IPS LCD having a resolution of at least 1080×2260 pixels
  • ColorOS 8.0 running on Android Oreo
