Oppo’s F9 Pro makes an impression with five minutes of VOOC Flash Charge

Though the looks don’t do much to tingle our senses

.In the constantly evolving smartphone market, the mid-segment is bursting with choices and improved selfie cameras take the cake. The five minute VOOC Flash Charge that comes with Oppo’s latest presentation, the F9 Pro is the clear winner here. The fast charge claims to juice up the phone for up to two hours of talk time. Launched along with its sibling, the F9, the two phones come with almost-similar features - 6.3in bezel-less screen, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 1080x2340 resolution, 25MP front camera, dual rear camera (16MP + 2MP), 3500mAh battery, 64BG storage (expandable up to 256GB). The fast charge, talk-time and an extra front cam sensor are reserved for the Pro version. So far everything sounds perfect, right? It’s the Sports gradient colour and Waterdrop design that didn’t make us go weak in the knees. The bling level is as high as an imaginary scenario where Michael Jackson’s diamond glove and Dr. Strange had a love child, named it ‘Blingy Jean’ and then abandoned it at Elton John’s doorstep! We’re sure this minor bias of ours won’t discourage users from indulging in its performance. There are three gradient colour combinations - Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple to choose from. The F9 is priced at 19,990 and the F9 Pro at 23,990 and can be pre-ordered through Flipkart before its official release on August 31.
