OPPO has unveiled its new F9 sub-premium device. The F9 is a solid offering on paper, and continues the new trend of innovative design factors with one of the best notch implementations we've ever seen.

OPPO released its Find X flagship a few months and the device captured a large portion of the headlines—for a while at least—mostly due to its innovative design. The company has finally brought us something a tad more lowkey with the next set of devices in its F series. The Chinese OEM launched the new OPPO F9 in Thailand and The Phillipines today, with the device set to make its way to other markets later.

The F9 sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340. That resolution indicates a notch, although what we have on display is something akin to that of the Essential PH-1, and may just be one of the best notch implementations on the market. A 90.8% screen to body ratio is similarly impressive.

The F9 is powered by MediaTek's Helio P60, an outstanding SoC that goes head to head with Qualcomm's offerings in that segment. Camera-wise, it features a 16 MP (f/1.85) + 2 MP dual camera setup, and a single AI-assisted 25 MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture. Having a selfie camera of that size is no surprise, as OPPO markets its devices as selfie-centric smartphones.

The F9 get its juice from a 3500 mAh battery and comes in two variants: one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, and another with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. There's also OPPO's VOOC fast charging keeping things down, a headphone jack for audiophiles, and OTG for convenience. Surprisingly, the F9 features a MicroUSB port, which is one of the few compromises we can sport on paper.

Considering OPPO's relationship with OnePlus, we wouldn't be surprised to see the OnePlus 6T sport a similar design. Not that we're complaining or anything; the F9 looks gorgeous.
