On the day it announced Filipina actress and host Alex Gonzaga as its first-ever A series ambassador, OPPO Philippines also revealed that it will start taking preorders for the OPPO A9 2020.
(Update, September 28: Should you buy this phone? Read OPPO A9 2020 review: A strong midrange contender.)
The smartphone, launching September 19 alongside the OPPO A5 2020, will be up for blind reservation from September 14 to 19. “Blind,” meaning the company’s not announcing the price just yet.
Still interested? All you need to do is go to any authorized OPPO store and make a non-refundable down payment of P1,000 (around $19). Those who preorder will get a free XSound Bluetooth headset worth P2,099 ($40), which can be claimed upon the release of the unit. Availability is scheduled for September 28.
