OPPO's latest product event was a bumper update for its device ecosystem in general. Not only did it introduce the new K9 smartphone, but it also revealed the new TVs of the same name. The Enco Air TWS earbuds also debuted at the show, as did the Vitality Edition of the OPPO Band.

OPPO's latest launch event revealed several new devices of various different categories, although they can all presumably be used together, perhaps in a single user's home. They include the OEM's newest smartphone, the Snapdragon 768G-powered K9. It has a 90Hz 6.43-inch AMOLED display, 64MP-sensor-headlining triple rear cameras, 8GB of RAM and 65W charging.

This "super performance"-focused device can now be pre-ordered online in China at 1,999 yuan (~US$310) for a SKU with 128GB of internal storage, or 2,199 yuan (~$340) to double this space. It could go well with the new Enco Air TWS earbuds, presented as affordable versions of OPPO's current X flagships.

Nevertheless, the new Airs are equipped with titanium-plated dynamic diaphragms for their 12mm drivers, a low-latency Game Mode and an IPX4 certification. Each bud has a 25mAh battery and can live in a charging case of 440mAh in capacity, for 4 and 20 hours' worth of playback respectively.

They have been priced at 249 yuan (~$39) and can be pre-ordered from OPPO's store or JD.com. Those with more money to spend could also consider a new K9-series TV. They come in 43-, 55- or 65-inch SKUs, all of which are 4K save the smallest.

The K9 smart screens have up to 30W speakers and 16GB ROMs, and are all powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT9652 chipset and 2GB of RAM. They start at 1,799 yuan (~$275) for the base model; 1,999 yuan for the 55-inch variant and 3,299 yuan (~$510) for the top-end SKU - however, there was talk of discounts when bundled with a new K9 phone during the event.

Finally, OPPO fulfilled hype for the Vitality (or "Youth") Edition of its Band at its extensive launch. It has a 1.1-inch display, although it is still AMOLED, and can withstand depths of up to 50 meters. It supports  SpO2 measurements, sleep tracking and continuous heart-rate monitoring.

The OPPO Band Vitality Edition is rated for up to 14 days of battery life, even if the heart-rate sensor is on 24/7. It goes for 149 yuan (~$23) with blue or orange bands from now.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
