This is it. OPPO has finally confirmed that the successors to the F7 series — the OPPO F9 and the OPPO F9 Pro — are coming soon.
The F9 was first teased by OPPO Malaysia on Twitter. Clearly, what the company calls “waterdrop screen” on the smartphone is not new; the Essential Phone bears the same display with a small cutout at the top to house the sensors. But it is a first for an OPPO device.
A drop of rain falls on the leaf will shine they say, but how if it falls on the screen?

Every sunrise symbolizes the start of another day. The OPPO F9 Sunrise Red, with the mixture of purple and red brings you a new beginning.

Team Malaysia’s most recent tweet reveals that there will be a Sunrise Red color variant
OPPO Malaysia’s third and most recent tweet finally shows the design of the phone’s back. A dual-camera setup arranged horizontally can be found on the upper-left side, sitting next to an LED flash. Right in the upper-middle part is a fingerprint sensor. There seems to be a pattern on the rear, and the color — at least for the Sunrise Red variant being teased — goes from red to pink to purple.
Meanwhile, OPPO India looks like it will be the first to get the higher-specced unit in the series, the OPPO F9 Pro. The cover photo on its Facebook page reveals that the Pro will soon be launched in one of the world’s largest smartphone markets.

Its tweet also reveals the same thing. Interestingly, the image above shows that the company’s own VOOC fast-charging technology will be present in the OPPO F9 Pro. This means you can talk to someone on the phone for two hours even if you have charged it for just 5 minutes. It’s a comeback for the feature in the F series. If we remember correctly, the last F model that has been equipped with VOOC was the OPPO F3 Plus.

We wonder when the Philippines will have the OPPO F9 and F9 Pro. We bet the local outfit will be teasing them — or one of the two — in no time.
