OPPO initially brought the F9 here in the country in Twilight Blue and Sunrise Red color options. But now, OPPO Philippines is saving the best for last as they finally bring home the Starry Purple variant.
The new OPPO F9 Starry Purple boasts a color gradient back with a hint of Gold in the company’s logo and the metal band that surrounds the fingerprint scanner and the dual cameras.
OPPO also removed the petal-like accent that the other models have, and instead sprinkled the back panel with tiny glitters that mimic the stars in a night sky — hence the “Starry Purple” monicker.
In terms of the specs, it’s still the same OPPO F9 that we have come to know. This thing comes with a large 6.3-inch FHD+ screen, runs on a MediaTek Helio P60 processor, and has a 6GB RAM and 64GB storage configuration.
It also boasts a waterdrop notch, which houses its 25-megapixel selfie camera. While on the back we have a 16-megapixel + 2-megapixel selfie camera.
Lastly, it comes with a 3,500mAh battery, with OPPO’s ultra-fast VOOC charging technology. You can learn more about the device’s overall performance in our full review.
