OPPO Philippines is welcoming the new year with the announcement of a new smartphone. Well, sort of.
This is the new color variant for the OPPO F9 in Jade Green, and you can preorder it from January 5 through the 11th in participating stores in the Philippines. It’s still priced at P17,990 (roughly $347), just like other versions of OPPO’s popular midrange phone. However, if you buy it during the said presale period, you’ll receive a Bluetooth speaker worth P2,990 ($57) as a freebie.

The color gradient itself looks attractive. It’s a looker, for sure, but nothing overly eye-fetching, with the combination of green, white, and gold mixing well together. Unlike the F9 in Twilight Blue and Sunrise Red, however, this model in particular doesn’t seem to have a diamond pattern on the back.
Of course, on the front, there’s OPPO’s signature waterdrop-style notch at the top of the display along with narrow bezels on the sides and bottom, for maximizing the screen space. The F9 has a reputation of boasting one of the highest screen-to-body ratios in the segment, with a display that occupies 90.8 percent of the front panel; this Jade Green version is no exception.
The panel is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6, which is claimed to provide twice the protection from drops compared to Gorilla Glass 5. The notch houses a 25-megapixel camera for selfies, while the rear-facing setup is 16 megapixels coupled with a 2-megapixel depth sensor for portrait or bokeh shots.
Inside, the OPPO F9 runs a capable MediaTek Helio P60 processor with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage, while the 3,500mAh battery supports VOOC fast-charging technology, which delivers 2 hours of talk time after just 5 minutes plugged in. In our review, we said: “OPPO has delivered yet another strong contender in the mid-tier segment, one that has improved well beyond what is expected of its namesake.”
