After the launch of Find X in June, Oppo is back focusing on other lineups of smartphones. The selfie-driven F-series saw its last launch in the form of Oppo F7, featuring 25 MP front camera.
According to Oppo Malaysia, the successor will be called Oppo F9 and the phone is already being prepared for a launch in August with an even smaller notch.
The image was posted by the Malaysian division on its official Twitter page and said it will have “waterdrop screen”. The message, accompanying the photo also raised some deep philosophical question of how will a waterdrop fall on the screen, whatever that means. We think it is a hint the Oppo F9 will be waterproof with at least IP67 compliability.
The Oppo F3 had dual front cameras and a regular 16:9 ratio screen that evolved into 18:9 when the Oppo F5 was announced. The forehead of the phone switched to a notch by the time Oppo F7 was made official and now it appears the cutout will be the smallest ever in an Oppo device, similar to what Essential did to the PH-1.
