Apart from bringing in the new display concept, these smartphones are known to be the first in series to get the Gorilla Glass 6 protection.

Furthermore, Vivo is even in plans to launch a smartphone with the similar waterdrop display. Another major highlight of the latest Oppo smartphones is Super fast VOOC charging support. Let us explore further to understand the main difference between Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro.
