OPPO launches the new K9 TV series alongside a phone of the same name and more
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.
