There’s a rear-facing fingerprint sensor, so you won’t be getting an in-display sensor on this one. Maybe, they are keeping this feature for the F15 Pro. Software side, it runs on Android 9.0 with ColorOS 6.0.1 on top.

The device is relatively thick at 9.1mm, thanks to its big display and it weighs 195g. The color option includes marine green and space purple.

Oppo A9 2020 is priced similarly to the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Vivo S1 Pro. If you are after performance then Redmi Note 8 Pro is the way to go, however, if you care more about the aesthetics of the phone, then Vivo S1 Pro with Super AMOLED display and under-display fingerprint could be the better choice. However, you will miss out on the 5,000mAh battery of the Oppo A9 if you choose any of the latter two.
