The OPPO A9 2020 is the newest smartphone from that will arrive in the Philippines soon and it is set to make an impact on the mid-range segment thanks to its powerful specifications inside including a brand new Snapdragon 665 processor inside and also a spanking quad rear camera which is a first in the A-series of OPPO. Want to know more about it? check out our hands-on and first impressions below.
The OPPO A9 2020 does pack a brand new design that strikes a familiar design from their previous flagship smartphone, the OPPO Find X. The one that we got for review is the Marine Green color and it looks damn gorgeous.
It’s not just gorgeous because the OPPO A9 2020 does feel natural in my hand thanks to its curved back and also the premium feel that is being used on the OPPO A9 2020. The smartphone is quite big but it also means that we’re getting a more immersive experience on its display which is a 6.6-inch HD+ display with a weird 20:9 display aspect ratio. Yes, the smartphone is quite tall but it does look good for watching videos but it isn’t really crisp as you can expect.
Thankfully, OPPO has decided to join the ranks of other brands with USB-C as the OPPO A9 2020 is finally using USB-C however, there’s no support for VOOC fast charging on this one.
Going to the camera, the OPPO A9 2020 packs a quadruple lens rear camera. There’s the 48MP main camera, 8MP ultra wide-angle lens that you can use for wider shots and then there’s the 2MP portrait lens and also a 2MP mono lens.
Surprisingly, the smartphone does perform well in the camera department as I was able to get some nice shots on the smartphone with pretty good dynamic range and colors along with the good selfie camera. Check out the shots that I took below:
The OPPO A9 2020 is surprisingly a good smartphone. Not just in terms of design but also because of its hardware inside and also the quad-camera setup of the smartphone that performs well. The OPPO A9 2020 will be available in the Philippines soon.
