We have the opportunity to check out the actual design and looks of the upcoming OPPO F9, special thanks to OPPO Malaysia. Here are the 3 design aspects that you’ll need to know.

Waterdrop Screen Design

OPPO F9 First Look

OPPO Malaysia previously teased an image where the OPPO F9 will feature a rather special display notch. Instead of a big slab notch or ultra-minimalist notch on the Essential PH-1, the curvy waterdrop notch is something that we have not seen on any smartphone.

In person, probably because of the shape, the notch seem less obtrusive and there is more screen real-estate for notification icons. First world problem eh?

2 Colour Options

There will be 2 colours available at launch – Midnight Blue and Sunrise Red. Personally, I’m digging the fiery Sunrise Red colour option. Due to the lighting condition of the room, the photo couldn’t do the colour any justice.

Diamond Underglass Pattern

The reason why I like the red colour option? Isn’t it obvious the special diamond shaped pattern under the glass looks way more attractive on it? This is not the first time OPPO has a special pattern on the phone back. This one caught my attention more than the OPPO F7 Diamond Black.

OPPO F9 Official Launch Date

No confirmation on the tech specs but we are sure that the MediaTek P60 chipset will be used in the phone and expect more Artificial Intelligence features to come along. The official launch date will be on 16th August 2018 and do stay with us for more updates in the coming week.
