Oppo F9, F9 Pro are now official in India with VOOC Flash Charge and tiny waterdrop notch

The Oppo F9 first popped up on our radar a few weeks ago when Oppo teased VOOC Flash Charging. Now, the Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro are official. These devices have a lot in common, but there are some key differences. Let’s start by comparing the specs in the chart below.

As you can see, there are minimal differences. The Oppo F9 Pro has just a few extra features. They have the same MediaTek Helio P60 processor, but the Pro has 6GB of RAM compared to 4GB. The displays are identical as well as the camera setup. They both have 3,500 mAh batteries, but the Pro model has VOOC flash charging.

The VOOC Flash Charging is one of the most noteworthy features of these new devices, even though the regular model doesn’t have it. Oppo promises 2 hours of talk time with just a quick 5-minute charge. Another cool feature is the tiny teardrop notch. It doesn’t take up much space and actually looks nice. The Pro model is also slightly heavier and comes in two extra colors. Of course, it costs a little more too. You’ll pay an extra Rs. 3,000 for the Pro model.

Oppo did not share exact launch dates and availability information. Both devices should be going on sale in India soon.
