It’s currently available for pre-order in China, but the Chinese tech company hasn’t revealed any details about its global availability. OPPO is advertising its 65W fast charging support, which is available on a number of flagship Android smartphones and will compete with Xiaomi and Realme’s offerings in the lower mid-budget category. Check out all the details before it enters the Indian smartphone market.
Oppo K9 5G Price in India
Customers can choose from two storage models, one with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage and another with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage and two colour choices including Black and Gradient. In China, OPPO K9 5G price for the base variant is 1999 Yuan (Rs. 22,800) and for the higher variant, the pricing is 2199 Yuan (Rs. 25,100). There is no news yet for the Indian launch.
However, if you don’t want to wait and your budget is around 20K, you can go with the Realme X7 5G if you wish to experience the superfast 5G or you can go with the Realme 8 Pro or the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
Speaking of the design, then the rear side along with the camera housing appears very unique with the smartphone K9 branding imparting a unique look to it. Also, the rear panel is made of glass, while the frame is made of plastic. OPPO K9 5G measures 7.9mm in thickness and weighs just 173 grams. With the thin and lightweight design, it will be comfortable to hold single-handedly.
The front appearance is not that special as the rear is. There is a normal punch-hole design along with a small chin. However, the hole size is quite small. On the bottom, there is a Type-c charging port along with the speaker grille and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The power button is on the right side, while the volume rocker is there on the left edge and the SIM tray on the top.
It is interesting to see an OLED display at the given price tag since almost all the smartphones from this price category come with an AMOLED panel. Also, there is a 90Hz refresh rate along with a 180Hz touch sampling rate and the screen features FHD+ resolution. With the OLED display, the colours are going to be punchy and bright. However, there is no support for HDR10+ here.
The performance section is quite solid with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G processor along with the Adreno 620 GPU. Not only this, for efficient gaming, there is a 3D liquid cooling system installed under the hood and you can play any game at higher graphics settings.
As for the RAM and storage, there is 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB UFS2.2 internal storage. On the software front, OPPO K9 5G runs on the Android 11 with ColorOS 11.1 skin on top.
The camera section is one of the highlighting features of the OPPO K9 5G. Oppo has done something amazing by bringing the 64MP triple rear camera setup along with a 32Mp selfie camera on the front, that too when they are providing 5G connectivity at the same time. The primary rear camera can shoot videos in 4K resolution at 30fps while the front camera support Full-HD recording
The rear camera is composed of a 64MP wide lens, followed by an 8Mp ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro lens. The overall photography is going to be very nice with the OPPO K9 5G since OPPO is known for its cameras and they have maintained that here as well.
One of the main highlighting features here is the 65W fast charging that you’ll see mostly in the flagship or premium range devices. So the refill time is going to be very less here.
Under the hood, OPPO K9 5G comes with a 4300 mAh battery, which is sufficient for managing the power backup throughout the day. For connecting the charger, there is a Type-C charging port.
In a nutshell, if you are ok with waiting for the global launch of the OPPOK9 5G, then the wait will be worth it. There is some serious stuff available in the device, be it the liquid cooling system or the 8GB RAM, be it the 64MP rear camera setup or the 32MP selfie camera. OPPO K9 5G comes equipped with the best configuration in all the sections. However, if you don’t want to wait, we have given you the best alternatives as well in the price section that you can check out.
