Oppo F9 Pro India launch event is on and the price is about to be revealed. This includes what is possibly one of the smallest notches seen on a smartphone. The Oppo F9 Pro launch event began with the company touting two-hour talktime via just five minutes of charging. The brand director of Oppo India, Will Yang, took the stage first. The company first spoke about its recent innovations in the smartphone space, starting with a briefing about the Oppo Find X and other smartphones Oppo has launched in its history. Then the company finally began talking about Oppo F9 Pro after this introduction, via its product manager Rishabh Srivastava. Alongside the Pro model, the company has launched the Oppo F9 smartphone in India, with 4GB RAM and 16-megapixel camera on the back.
He called Oppo F9 Pro's VOOC fast charging technology its biggest feature. He said the smartphone can be charged for five minutes to deliver two hours of talk time. You get 11 percent of battery with five minutes of charging. With 30 minutes charge, you get 57 percent of battery. Oppo F9 Pro's VOOC flash chargers come with five layers of protection, which keeps the smartphone's battery safe even with such a high charging speed, Oppo India claims. For the Indian market, Oppo has kept voltage fluctuation in mind, which apparently protects the chargers from voltage fluctuations, and the charging cable also has more pins for this, Srivastava said. The Oppo F9 Pro has AI battery management to deliver better battery life, Oppo claims.

The smartphone features AI scene recognition, and an artistic portrait mode. The phone also has AR stickers, slow motion video recording, HDR mode for photos, Oppo says.
