Oppo has officially started teasing the Oppo F9 Pro launch for the Indian market. Even for Malaysia, the company has teased a similar poster noting ‘F9 is coming’.
The official F9 Pro teaser by Oppo on Twitter comes with the tagline “The breaking new vision”, and showcasing a much smaller notch display like the Essential smartphone. The Malaysian teaser by Oppo is also similar for the Oppo F9, but in addition to that it notes Oppo F9 will have “waterdrop screen”. It can’t be confirmed if that’s referred to quality of the display or a hint towards IP67 rating.
Previously, an official teaser poster hinted at a dual rear camera setup instead of 16-megapixel single camera unit seen on Oppo F7 and had noted the F9 is ‘coming soon’.

There are no other details available about the Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro as of now, but considering the smaller notch and dual-rear camera setup, it appears to be similar models as the PBCM00 and PBCT00 that were certified recently in China.
We are expecting these to debut as Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro for global market, whereas these are likely to be called Oppo R17 and R17 Pro in China. As per the listing, these would feature a 6.3-inch display with 19:9 aspect ratio OLED display, dual rear cameras, 156.7x74x7.9mm dimensions, and a 3,415mAh battery. Other than that, these are anticipated to be powered by either MediaTek Helio P60 SoC or Snapdragon 710 SoC, coupled 6GB RAM and 128GB storage along with 3D face unlock like the Apple iPhone X.
