OPPO has confirmed that it will be launching a new K-series smartphone called the OPPO K9 on May 6 in China. The moniker of the device suggests that it will be arriving as the successor to the last year’s OPPO K7 5G smartphone.
The official poster that confirms the launch date of the OPPO K9 reveals that it carries support for 65W rapid charging. The company claims that 5 minutes of charging can make the device last 2 hours. The image also showcases the rear design of the smartphone. As it can be seen, the handset is equipped with a triple camera system led by a 64-megapixel camera.
The OPPO K9 smartphone appears to be the OPPO PEXM00 smartphone that was recently certified by the TENAA authority of China. The listing revealed that this device will be sporting a 6.43-inch display, which probably supports a Full HD+ resolution. The absence of a side-mounted or rear-facing fingerprint sensor suggested that the PEXM00 could be featuring an AMOLED screen with an in-screen fingerprint reader.
The TENAA listing further revealed that the device runs on Android 11 OS and it has a 2,100mAh (rated capacity) dual-cell battery. It is speculated that the smartphone is equipped with a front-facing camera of 32-megapixel. The PEXM00 smartphone was also spotted at the Geekbench benchmarking platform recently. The listing revealed that the phone has 8 GB of RAM and it could be powered by the Snapdragon 765G or Snapdragon 768G chipset.
With over two weeks remaining for the launch, OPPO is expected to reveal a few more features of the OPPO K9 smartphone in the coming days. At present, there is no word on the pricing of the K9.
