The OPPO F9 has had huge success, thanks to its gorgeous design and unbelievably good specs, marked by a very competitive price. Now, the tech brand has announced that the device will soon be available in a new color, Jade Green. It’s a tribute to the Philippines’ natural beauty that’s sought by the world, from its white-sand beaches, clear waters, and rainforests.
The OPPO F9 features a 6.3-inch TFT-LTPS panel with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels, or FHD+. At the helm is an octa-core Helio P60 processor, along with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, expandable with a microSD card. It runs ColorOS 5.2 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, and packs a 3,400mAh battery with VOOC Flash Charge Technology.
For imaging, the phone houses a dual rear camera system – a 16MP main sensor coupled with a 2MP depth sensor. With its AI Scene Detection feature, the device can intelligently determine the best settings for a specific subject. Its 25MP front snapper also boasts the company’s signature AI Beauty Technology 2.0, which scans numerous points on your face to determine which effects to use to “Beautify” you.
“We chose to imbue our popular OPPO F9 model in Jade Green in honor of the Philippines’ natural beauty, from the shores of breathtaking beaches to the deepest parts of the country’s rainforests and other natural features. OPPO is inspired to help work towards protecting and preserving the country’s natural beauty and is working out a partnership with Bantay Kalikasan to achieve that goal.”
– Jane Wan, OPPO Philippines VP for Marketing.
