OPPO F9 launched in India with 6.3-inch “Waterdrop Screen”, Helio P60 SoC and Dual 4G VoLTE

More than three weeks ago, Chinese smartphone brand OPPO launched the OPPO F9 Pro in India with a price tag of ₹23,990. Alongside launching the F9 Pro, OPPO had also announced the F9 in India. And now today, OPPO has finally launched the OPPO F9 for the Indian market.


The OPPO F9 and OPPO F9 Pro are actually the same phones in terms of design and the underlying hardware. But, there still are some differences between the two. Both the F9 and F9 Pro are powered by MediaTek’s Helio P60 SoC, however, the F9 Pro comes with 6 GB RAM whereas the F9 comes with 4 GB RAM.

Another difference between the F9 and F9 Pro is in the camera department. While both these smartphones come with dual cameras – 16 MP and 2 MP – at the back, the front cameras on both of them differ. The OPPO F9 Pro comes with a 25 MP camera whereas the F9 comes with a 16 MP camera.


The OPPO F9 and F9 Pro both ship with a 3500 mAh battery, but, unlike the F9 Pro, the F9 doesn’t come with VOOC Flash Charge. Furthermore, the F9 Pro comes with single VoLTE whereas the F9 comes with Dual 4G VoLTE, which means you can continue enjoying the benefits of VoLTE on both the SIM cards. Apart from these differences, everything else remains the same across the F9 and the F9 Pro. You can check out full specifications of the OPPO F9 down below.
