Oppo has already confirmed the key specs of its next 5G smartphone. There is nothing left for the fans to speculate except for the pricing of the upcoming K9 5G as it has been listed on Oppo’s official website ahead of its May 6 release. In this post, we will be taking a look at the specs, features, and official launch date of Oppo K9 5G.
Oppo K9 5G Overview:
Design and Display

It has a left-aligned punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. Similarly, Oppo has included its sixth generation in-display fingerprint scanner for biometrics.
At the back, there is a rectangular camera bump on the top left corner. The left side of the panel is covered with branding materials. The phone is just 7.9mm thick and weighs around 172 grams.
Performance and Memory
Oppo K9 5G comes with the Snapdragon 768G processor which happens to be an overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 765G. Here, the Kryo 475 Prime core has a clock frequency of up to 2.8GHz instead of 2.4GHz. Similarly, the Adreno 620 CPU is clocked higher at 725MHz. It is also the first chipset in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 700 series to support an updateable GPU. However, it is entirely up to Oppo if it wants to utilize this feature.

The company has not specifically mentioned the purpose of the third sensor but it could be anything between a depth sensor, a macro sensor, or a monochrome sensor. There is a 32MP shooter up front for selfies.
