OPPO is all set to bring out the F9 Pro in India on August 21, 2018. The company is not likely to launch the OPPO F9 in the country while it has already been launched in Vietnam. The phone has been in the news for quite some time, thanks to the leaks and videos that kept following it. Now, in the latest development, OPPO itself has outed the TVC for the upcoming F9 Pro. The ad does not reveal the pricing but focuses heavily on one feature of the phone i.e. VOOC charging.
OPPO F9 Pro: First TVC Premieres With Deepika Padukone, Siddharth Malhotra
The first TVC of the OPPO F9 Pro was posted by the brand on its official Twitter handle. In India, Deepika Padukone and Siddharth Malhotra have been the brand ambassadors of OPPO for quite some time now. Yet again, the latest TVC of the brand features these two tinsel town stars. The TVC heavily promoted the VOOC flash charging feature of the phone, which is touted by the company to offer 2 hours of talktime with just 5 minutes of charge. In the TVC, we see Deepika Padukone leaving her house after charging the F9 Pro for 5 minutes. She later spends 2 hours talking to Sidharth Malhotra over the phone while she commutes to his house in the car. The TVC quite clearly shows that the F9 Pro lasts for 2-hours on 5 minutes charge.
When life moves at a fast pace, why should a discharged phone slow us down? #OPPOF9Pro comes with #VOOC Flash Charge Technology: 5-minute charge, 2-hour talk. Here's how VOOC helped @S1dharthM & @deepikapadukone stay connected, just like it does for you and your loved ones. pic.twitter.com/TcNMCjgYdI
