Oppo K9 Pro has a lot of power and a great screen at a mini price

Oppo K9 Pro is official in China: it's an interesting product because it's bold aesthetically and also in terms of value for money

Oppo K9 Pro has been official for a few hours in China, where there are all the conditions for it to conquer a good slice of the market. After all, the smartphone comes with a lot of power, a great screen for balance and a more than reasonable price, at least that practiced in China where the marketing has already started.

The great power of Oppo K9 Pro is ensured by the Dimensity 1200 chip of MediaTek, recent world leader in semiconductors that has brought out a chip really very good, and has demonstrated on board the recent OnePlus Nord 2. There is then a display with a high refresh rate - it comes to 120 Hz - with a diagonal not too small nor, on the contrary, too large, and that promises well in terms of quality great to full support for the DCI-P3 color gamut. In this framework fits a very low price, in light of the technical specifications, although it must be said immediately that if K9 Pro were to arrive in our parts will not do so at the Chinese price converted into euros.

Oppo K9 Pro: what it's like

Oppo K9 Pro boasts a large screen but at a level that might be annoying or difficult to use for most people: it's a 6.43-inch AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution and a form factor of 20:9, so it's long enough than wide to make it easy to grip with one hand.

It has a refresh rate of 120 Hz, so usage should be pretty smooth, and great color accuracy since it supports 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It integrates a fingerprint reader for secure unlocking.

To carry out the daily tasks of customers of the Oppo K9 Pro takes care of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200: it is an octa core chip made with 6-nanometer manufacturing process that can go up to a frequency of 3 GHz, so it certainly does not lack in maximum performance. Supporting it are 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 or 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.

On the multimedia front, Oppo K9 Pro offers three rear cameras: the main wide-angle is 64 MP with f/1.7 aperture, then there are an 8 MP f/2.2 ultra wide-angle with 119 degree field of view and finally a macro sensor - for close-up photos - 2 MP with f/2.4 aperture. On the front surface is a 16 MP f/2.4 camera for selfies and video calls.

No waivers regarding connectivity. Oppo K9 Pro arrives with 5G SA/NSA, Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 6 802.11 ax (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz), Bluetooth 5.1, GPS/GLONASS, USB-C, NFC, as well as stereo speakers and most importantly the 3.5 mm audio jack input that many still regret.

The battery is a 4,500 mAh unit with fast charging at an impressive 60 watts. Oppo K9 Pro is a dual SIM smartphone on which there is Oppo's ColorOS 11.3 user interface that is based on Android 11.

Oppo K9 Pro: how much does it cost

Oppo K9 Pro is currently on pre-order in China, the first units will actually be available from September 30. In China it takes the equivalent of 290 euros for the 8+128 GB variant and 355 euros for the 12+256 GB one.

Still ignore the possible marketing in the West, but if it were to arrive it would certainly do so at higher prices due to taxes and various levies.
