OPPO F9 debuts in the Philippines: Specs, Price, Availability

OPPO F9 debuts in the Philippines at Php 17,990. This is a very aggressive move from the company that gave us three mid-range hero devices in less than a year. The OPPO F9's defining feature is the improved VOOC Flash Charging which could give users two-hour talk time in just 5 minutes of charging session.

 6GB RAM, Dual-rear Camera

On top of that, the OPPO F9 also beefed its hardware with 6GB of RAM. Though, it still comes with the MediaTek Helio P60 as the F7, it promises to have a smoother interface due to the optimization of Color OS and Android 8.1.

The OPPO F9 also ups the ante when it comes to mobile photography. It boasts a dual rear-camera module (16MP + 2MP sensors) which are "AI-enhanced" for great depth-of-field and Bokeh effects.

On the front, the 25MP front camera still manages to cloud other selfie smartphones. The front camera is also re-invented with "Sensor HDR" for dramatic back-lighted selfies and real-time dynamic exposure effects.
