Design and Display

One of the selling points of the Oppo A9 is its design language. We’ve seen it quite often amidst smartphones recently, so it might not seem special. Yet, it’s beautiful. A dewdrop notch sits at the top, thereby interrupting the free flow of the edge-to-edge screen. The screen’s base is rounded up with a small chin.

Using the IPS LCD panel, the touchscreen commands a 10-finger multi-touch capability. The 6.53-inch panel works with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels for clarity of texts and inputs. At the screen’s disposal are 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 84.9% screen-to-body ratio.

Battery and Camera

What makes the Oppo A9 tick for several hours and even a full day is the non-removable 4,020mAh energy in its battery pack. This power can be used to refill other devices as USB On-The-Go is supported.

In the camera department, there are three shooters positioned in a ratio 1 to 2 with respect to the front and the back. The front’s 16MP shooter captures clear shots in daylight for social media folks. At the rear, 16MP and 2MP sensors control anything photography with assistance from AI and LED flash.

Hardware and Software

I love the MediaTek Helio P70 that sits on the throne of Oppo A9. This chip is spearheaded by an octa-core processor with a  speed of 2.1GHz. In association, there’s the Mali-G73 MP3 for graphics handling. Meanwhile, Android 9.0 Pie tags with ColorOS 6 to run the software activities. Memory-wise, the RAM and ROM partners are 6GB and 128GB respectively.

Oppo A9 Price and Availability

The smartphone is available at the price equivalent of 80, 000 Naira depending on the deal and your location.
