“I am honoured to be the Product Ambassador of the OPPO F9. I really love the VOOC Flash Charging technology as it saves a lot of time from phone charging. On the other hand, OPPO F9 is the first F-series which has gradient colour design with flower petal pattern for all range of colours which amazed me a lot. The outstanding Waterdrop screen design stands me out from the crowd always and I love it very much. Not only that, with the 16MP + 2MP dual-rear camera I can easily take beautiful scenery photographs. The 25MP front camera that coupled with Sensor HDR will make sure that I have a vivid and non-excessive light exposure selfie,” said Neelofa.
“I am happy that OPPO F9 is finally released! The Gradient colours with Flower petal pattern design is truly a gem, the sunrise red is like dawn of the day and the twilight blue is like the serenity of night river. I fell in love to the OPPO F9 straightaway upon I seen it for the first time. I hope Malaysian will love it as much as I do.”said Hebe Tien, Taiwanese singer who is also representing OPPO F9.
Another celebrity team member, Eric Chou, the Taiwanese singer who also attend the Press Conference event also shared his experience that he was thrilled to work alongside OPPO and to be selected as the product ambassador of the F9. He thinks that the VOOC Flash Charging Technology comes in handy as he doesn’t always have the time to keep charging his phone.

Their charming personalities and cheerful sense brings positive vibes to attract our consumers. Our aim is to always put our users first and we do this by improving our existing technology to bring them something fresh and new every time, so with these ambassadors and the amped-up technology, we hope to attract more consumers through the OPPO F9 as we are certain to provide our users an extraordinary user experience.”
Breakthrough in charging: Rapid Charge with VOOC
For the first time ever, OPPO F9 ships with VOOC Flash Charge. This technology,independently developed by OPPO, has a charging speed which is four times faster than general charging at 5V/1A. For those in a hurry, a quick 5-minute charge is enough to maintain 2 hours of talk time.
In addition to increasing the charging speed by four times, VOOC also boasts an intelligent five-layer protection system from the adaptor to the port and interior of the phone. VOOC has replaced the voltage reducing circuit with a MCU, effectively preventing the mobile phone from overheating while charging, making VOOC a coolfast charging tech. You can alsouse your phone while keeping the fast charging speed, which high voltage fast charge cannot do.
Breakthrough Design: Waterdrop Screen with Gradient colors
As an increasingly popular smartphone brand among young people, OPPO taps into their taste in fashion and style to design products with mass appeal. OPPO has three gradient color combinations- Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue and Starry Purple.
