OPPO F9 Pro launched in Kenya: Specs, Price and Availability

OPPO has launched the OPPO F9 Pro with 6GB RAM and VOOC Flash Charger in Kenya. The OPPO F9 Pro was actually one of the devices the company talked about when it launched the OPPO F9 back in September.

Just like what we saw on the OPPO F9 model, the F9 Pro brings what the company is calling Waterdrop display, which is basically an edge-to-edge screen with a small notch shaped like a water droplet.

“Once again for the Kenyan market, we introduce a phone that is developed for the discerning customer. OPPO F9 Pro offers our customers high performance and a special design which has become our company speciality, the RAM is an addition to water-drop screen and the VOOC flash charging capability that saves time and allows longer phone usage without the need to charge frequently,” OPPO PR and Communications Manager, James Irungu says.
