Design And Display
The Oppo A9 (2020) comes with new and seductive body design. Of course, there are some changes to the panel. For example, the smooth panel houses the triple camera, the LED flash, the fingerprint, and the branded logo in a vertical order at the center.
It comes with body dimensions of 163.6 x 75.6 x 9.1 mm and weight 195 gram which is not that bad considering the huge battery on the inside. The waterdrop notch is where you will find the camera, and the bottom bezel has been carefully reduced as well.
With the 6.5 inches screen size just like Galaxy A70, users will enjoy watching movies and other entertainment on their new device. The screen has a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and 270 PPI density.
The crown jewel of A9’s larger content display is a redesigned Waterdrop Notch. And because of dynamic pixel adjustment, you can read what is on your screen even under strong sunlight. Plus, A9 filters out harmful blue light to prevent eye fatigue, protect your vision and even help you fall asleep faster.
The Oppo A9 packs a tall 20:9 ratio and it reaches up to 82.5% screen-to-body ratio.

The internal storage on the device includes a 4GB RAM with 128GB of inbuilt storage and another with 8GB RAM and 128GB. You can still expand the memory using a micro SD card up to 256GB.
Working in tandem with A9’s 8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 665 provides faster performances while simultaneously lowering power consumption by 20%. Nowhere is this more evident than with Game Boost 2.0. It combines Frame Boost and Touch Boost for smoother, more responsive gaming.
OPPO A9 2020 (A9) fits five separate cameras into a single smartphone. A 48MP rear main lens for maximum photo resolution. An Ultra Wide 119° rear lens for panoramic pictures. Two rear lenses that provide artistic portrait effects. And a 16MP front lens featuring AI Beautification.

Battery And Network
One of top-selling point of this phone is not only the camera set-up but the massive non-removable battery of 5000 mAh. However, there’s no news if the juicer has support for fast charging technology.
Nevertheless, it comes with Reverse charging, which means you can use it to power other devices as well just like a power bank.
