Quad Camera Equipped OPPO A9 2020 Arriving in September
We're still in 2019 but OPPO may be taking us too soon into 2020 with the new OPPO A9 2020. The phone which is rumored to be arriving this September has just appeared on the company's Vietnamese Facebook page flaunting a quad-camera setup.
The OPPO A9 2020 came as a surprise to us when it popped up on the company's Vietnamese Facebook page with the numbers 2020 in its name. The reason why we were amazed was our assumption that since it has 2020 in its name, it should be coming next year. We concluded that the picture must have been posted too soon. But a closer look at the Facebook pictures gives the impression that it's set and ready to go. As if to add more weight to that impression, a report surfaced claiming the device will be arriving this month, September 2019.
Apparently, the device is the successor, if not a refreshed version of the OPPO A9 released in April this year. Having similar names, it makes us think that both phones will have something in common, and they actually do according to the reports and Facebook pictures.
The OPPO A9 2020 is expected to come with a 6.53-inch HD+ (720 x 1,600p) IPS LCD display with an aspect ratio of 20:9. Its dimensions will measure 163.6 x 75.6 x 9.1mm weighing in at 195g. The device is also rumored to arrive with an impressive 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage which comes with memory expansion via microSD card.
Under the hood, the A9 2020 is expected to sport Qualcomm's 11nm Snapdragon 665 chipset with an Adreno 610 GPU. Camera wise, the device is believed to sport a 48MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad-camera setup at the back and a teardrop notch housing a 16MP front-facing camera.
In addition, the A9 2020 is said to arrive running Android Pie with ColorOS 6.1 atop, a fingerprint sensor placed on the back, NFC support as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Powering the device will be a 5,000mAh capacity battery via a dated Micro USB port. The OPPO A9 2020 will arrive with 2 colorways, namely Space Purple and Marine Green.
Despite being spotted on OPPO Vietnam's official Facebook page, some reports suggest that the OPPO A9 2020 will first launch in Indonesia and China, then eventually make its way to other countries.
In the Philippines though, the OPPO A9 2020 is expected to arrive on September 19th along with the OPPO A5 2020. Official pricing and specs are expected to be announced anytime soon.
