OPPO F9 Starry Purple variant launched at new OPPO concept store at Glorietta 2

The mid-range OPPO F9 – which has a gradient body (that’s nice to hold), a waterdrop screen (that minimizes the notch), 6GB RAM (for fluid user experience), dual rear cameras (for capturing the best moments), and VOOC Flash Charging (5 minute charge equals 2 hours of talk time) – now comes in glamorous Starry Purple. The new variant was debuted at the newly opened OPPO flagship concept store at Glorietta 2 on September 15, 2018. Actress-Singer and OPPO ambassador Glaiza de Castro performed at the new concept store. The F9, launched last month, was initially available only in Sunrise Red and Twilight Blue.
