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.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
