Announcement. OPPO K9 5G Smartphone - What Does “09-K” Mean?

I love riddles, but not being able to find the answer is a little unnerving.

In China, the OPPO K9 5G smartphone has appeared on sale. Nice middle class. And not even a double of any of the previously presented smartphones.

Well, it appeared - and appeared. Two colors.The first is something light iridescent. The second is black. And this second one has the inscription “09-K” on the back. Apparently, it is also present on the box with the smartphone. What does it mean? I do not know. For five minutes of searching, I could not find the answer. I completely forgot how to google.

About the smartphone. Bouncy iron, super-fast charging, solid screen. In order about everything.

The chipset is rare, Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G.And there is not a single international smartphone on it. Quite a few Chinese, which you can't even find on AliExpress. The performance is good. In the region of 450 thousand points in AnTuTu9. There is a lot of memory. 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage. Memory card support is not mentioned. It looks like she's not here.

AMOLED screen, diagonal - the usual 6.43 ″. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2400 (409 ppi). The refresh rate is not extreme, but still higher than the standard - 90 Hz.

But what can be called extreme is the charging speed. Charging here as much as 65 W, i.e. close to record. The battery capacity is currently average, 4300 mAh.

Cameras. A fairly standard set of a front camera with a resolution of 32 MP and a rear trio of 64 + 8 + 2 MP - the main module, wide-angle, macro.

Fingerprint scanner built into the screen, NFC moduleno, there are no our LTE bands either - neither the seventh nor the twentieth. Even if OPPO K9 5G appears in Chinese stores with delivery to us, there is no point in buying it.

The price is not bad, not too high. ¥ 1999 (₽23100, $ 309) for the 8 + 128 GB version and ¥ 2199 (₽25400, $ 340) for the older version 8 + 256 GB.
