Event: OPPO F9 Launching with ambassador Neelofa and Eric Chou
Venue: VE Hotel, Bangsar South
Date: 16 August 2018
Time: 3:00 pm
Oppo Malaysia launched its latest Oppo F9 smartphone at a media and dealer launch event held at VE Hotel in Bangsar South, 16 Aug 2018. Event together with OPPO ambassadors – Malaysian actress, television presenter, commercial model and entrepreneur Neelofa, and rising new Taiwanese singer-songwriter and actor Eric Chou.
The F9 brings OPPO’s renowned VOOC Flash Charge technology that allows the phone to charge up to four times faster. OPPO claims that a quick five-minute charge is enough to enable two hours of talk time. Apart from VOOC, the F9 also now has dual rear cameras: a 16- and 2-megapixel combo. VOOC also boasts an intelligent 5 layer protection system that prevents the phone from overheating and also allows you to use the phone, while charging. The selfie sensor is still a 25-megapixel shooter with all the AI-enabled features from other OPPO selfie phones.
The stylish and fashionable new F9 also comes in 3 gradient combinations – Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple – using Oppo’s Gradient Spraying Technology and “Frame Gradient” on the back for a more unified user viewing experience. It shines like a crystal gem in the sunlight and flowing water in motion, aesthetics which will appeal to younger consumers.
The display of the F9 is slightly increased to 6.3 inches and has a taller 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Another change to the F9’s display is the smaller notch which OPPO calls “waterdrop.” This enables the phone to have a better screen-to-body ratio of 90.8 percent.
Eric Chou thinks that the VOOC Flash Charging Technology comes in handy as he doesn’t always have the time to keep charging his phone. With VOOC Flash Charging, he can enjoy 2 hours of talk time just by charging it for 5minutes. Another thing he loves most about the OPPO F9 is the gradient colour design with the flower petal pattern as he thinks it represents hi fashion choices and also his unlimited possibilities.
“I’m honoured to be the product ambassador of the OPPO F9. I really love the VOOC Flash Charging Technology as it saves a lot of time from phone charging. On the other hand, OPPO F9 is the first F-series which has gradient colour design with flower petal pattern for all range of colours which amazed me a lot. The outstanding waterdrop screen design stands me out from the crowd always and I love it very much. Not only that, with the 16MP + @MP dual-rear camera I can easily take beautiful scenery photographs. The 25MP front camera that coupled with Sensor HDR will make sure that I have a vivid and non-excessive light exposure selfie.” said Neelofa.
The F9 is equipped with AI enhanced dual rear cameras (16MP + 2MP) to help achieve a Bokeh effect. 16 independent and 800 combined scenes can be recognised by the AI Scene Recognition. It also comes with a 25MP front selfie camera, with re-invented “Sensor-HDR” technology, which improves backlight selfies and allows users to check high dynamic exposures live effects in real time.
“I’m happy that OPPO F9 is finally released! The gradient colours with flower petal pattern design is truly a gem, the sunrise red is like dawn of the day and the twilight blue is like the serenity of night river. I fell in love to the OPPO F9 straightaway upon I seen it for the first time. I hop Malaysian will love it as much as I do.” said Hebe Tien, Taiwanese singer who is also representing OPPO F9.
