Oppo F9 Announced.... Will this be the design of Oneplus 6T !?

The New OPPO F9

Oppo F9 was launched earlier today in Vietnam which will be released in India, South East Asia and East/North Africa. The Oppo F9 looks gorgeous with a notch design that’s slightly similar to the one we have witnessed in the Essential Phone. But frankly this is the most beautiful notch till now. The notch is very small, designed as a drop and it provides a large screen to body ratio with intruding the viewing experience unlike the present ones. The ear piece is placed just above the front camera.


The Oppo F9 sports a 1080p 6.3″ IPS LCD display with 19/5:9 Aspect ratio. It has a finger print scanner at the back, power button on the right side and volume rockers at the left. It also has a headphone Jack and dedicated micro sd card which supports upto 256GB. Underneath the phone, it has a Octacore Mediatek MT6771 Helio P60 processor and Mali-G72 MP3 GPU with 4GB/6GB RAM+ 64GB storage options. The battery capacity is 3500 mAh  with support for VOOC Flash Charge (20W), via micro USB. The VOOC (Voltage Open Loop Multi-step Constant-Current Charging) technology is same as the Dash Charging bundled with Oneplus phones. Oppo claims to provide 2 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging, which is mind blowing.

Also the Oppo F9 is the first phone to be coming with a Gorilla Glass 6 protection on the front glass which according to corning can survive almost 15 drops from a height of 1 m. Can’t believe? Check out this video.

The primary camera is a dual camera setup with 16 MP and an Aperture of 1.9, a dedicated 2 MP camera at the back is used for depth sensing. The selfie camera is of 25MP resolution and an Aperture of 2.0. Both the cameras have Scene detection and Portrait modes features. The back side of the Oppo F9 has a beautiful diamond like pattern with color gradients and would be available in Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple colors. The phone definitely looks very attractive from the front and back. The pricing of the phone is still unknown.

Oppo is also launching R17 for china that looks exactly like Oppo F9 but with better specs of OLED screen, Snapdragon 670 processor and In Display fingerprint scanner.

Oppo and Oneplus – Similarity:

Oneplus is known to launch phones with a design almost identical to a Oppo phone that was launched few months before. If we see the history, Oneplus One- Oppo Find 7, Oneplus 5- Oppo R11, Oneplus 5T- Oppo R11 S, Oneplus 6 Oppo R15 pro, these all phones were very similar in design though very different in specifications. Its almost 3 months that Oneplus6 was launched and the Oneplus 6T is expected to be launched in couple of months, will the same design of Oppo F9 be implemented in 6T? A tiny dip at the top and small chin at the bottom? If it’s true then the hopes for dual speaker setup will go in vain. It’s too soon to judge though. There’s Oppo Find X too that’s out in the market to inspire Oneplus. Let’s wait and watch if it’s a pop up camera or the tiny notch that’s waiting for us.
