One of the images clearly shows the waterdrop-shaped notch (housing the selfie camera) on the smartphone s front panel, with reduced side bezels and a thin chin on the bottom. Another image shows two Oppo F9 s and the smartphone s funky-looking gradient paint jobs Red Sunshine and Twilight. The rear panel of the Oppo F9 has an oval-shaped fingerprint sensor in the center of the upper half, with Oppo s logo just below it. At the top corner, there s a horizontal dual-camera setup and LED flash, both of which are surrounded by a common Chrome-plated periphery.
