Oppo F9 has been one of the most popular mid-range offerings from the company in Nepal since it arrived in Nepal in 2018. Though the Oppo F9 is already an outdated device, it is still available in the market at hefty price tag. So you buy this or should you be looking for something more up to date?

Oppo F9 Overview
The Oppo F9 is the successor of the popular F7 smartphone which managed to create quite a buzz last year. The F9 has quite a few improvements over the older device. The major improvement is definitely the camera, as Oppo has listened to its customers and added a secondary camera on the back for taking portrait shots. Also, the phone is now VOOC flash charge enabled. If you take Oppo’s words into consideration, this technology will provide users with 2 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charge.
Design and Display
The new smartphone from Oppo now comes with a glass back. It has a petal pattern design which makes the design stunning to look at. Also, buyers might like the fact that the front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
The Oppo F9 now comes with a revamped notch, that looks like a water drop, i.e. the name Waterdrop Screen. This screen is 6.3-inch tall and has a Full HD+ LTPS IPS LCD display of 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, the F9 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor aided by 4 or 6 GB of RAM, according to a user’s choice. In terms of storage, the device comes only in a single model – a 64 GB variant. However, it would have been better if Oppo had included a 128 GB storage variant, but hey, there is an option to expand it up to 256 GB.
On the optics front, the Oppo F9 is equipped with a 25-megapixel camera with Sensor HDR and f/2.0 aperture. Like the F7, this phone also manages to capture AI-enabled selfies. The back, as I mentioned before, has dual lenses measuring 16- and 2-megapixels of f/1.8 and f/2.4 aperture respectively. According to Oppo, the rear camera setup is now capable of intelligently detecting its subject to apply proper picture settings to make the images better.
Battery and others
The Oppo F9 features a 3,500 mAh battery which is VOOC flash charging enabled. We will test out the battery in our full review of course. It comes with dual SIM slots and is available in three colors variants – Sunrise Red, Starry Purple, and Twilight Blue.

Oppo F9 Price and Availability in Nepal
The price of Oppo F9 in Nepal is Rs 37,990 for its 4/64GB variant and Rs 45,5990 for the 6/64GB variant. At this point in time, I feel like Oppo Nepal has forgotten about updating the price of Oppo F9. For the price of 4/64GB variant, one can get the Oppo Reno 2F which is superior in all aspects.
