The smartphone game is now going beyond just the techie side of things. Aesthetics – from bezel-less screens to bold colors – are catching the attention of style enthusiasts who also express themselves through the colors of their phones. Cases are usually the go-to solution, but if a phone is as dazzling as our latest find, there’s a huge chance that clear cases will do! OPPO dares everyone to be unique with the recent release of its most expressive and uniquely designed smartphone to date— the OPPO F9 in Starry Purple.
The Starry Purple was officially introduced to the public at the OPPO concept store at Glorietta 2, Makati City last Saturday (September 15, 2018) with actress-singer and OPPO ambassador Glaiza de Castro, who also entertained the visitors to a lovely song number.
“I’m very happy with my Starry Purple OPPO F9—it charges super quickly, it takes great photos, and its design is such a head-turner. What makes it different from other smartphones is that it adds that special touch to my personality and makes me unique, which is important for me as an artist—and surely important for every individual as well,” shared Glaiza about her new phone.
Unlike the other F9 variants with petal-shaped patterns and gradient colors, the Starry Purple follows the appearance of the night sky studded with twinkling stars. The back cover starts from a glossy indigo at the top, and seamlessly transitions to a deep purple finish downwards. While the top portion is sprayed with small beads to achieve the starry effect and resulting to a gradient finish that definitely stands out.
Launched last August in Sunrise Red and Twilight Blue, OPPO F9 introduced a highly beneficial VOOC Flash Charge technology in the mid-range category, giving its user around two hours of talk time after charging for just five minutes. This can save users up to 2 hours of charge time as compared to the standard 5V/1A charger. The phone also takes pride in its waterdrop screen, 6GB RAM, and dual rear cameras that provide high value for money.
