Oppo A9 2020 Will Feature 48MP Quad-camera, Snapdragon 665 SoC, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, 5000mAh battery, Type-C port
According to the teaser page, the A9 2020 will have a quad-camera setup consisting of a 48MP primary camera, 8MP ultrawide camera, and two 2MP depth-sensors. The smartphone is teased to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC paired to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That being said, I am sure, there will be other memory configurations on offer. Oppo also reveals it on the teaser page that the A9 2020 will have a massive, 5000mAh battery along with USB Type-C port and reverse charging capability.
Oppo A9 2020 Will Be One of The Few Smartphone in The Segment to Feature Stereo Speakers
However, none of that is as impressive as the next feature of the Oppo A9 2020, and it is the dual stereo speakers. Yup, we will soon have a lower mid-range smartphone with stereo speakers. This feature is usually found in high-end devices, but it looks like Oppo is offering it in more affordable smartphone to have a competitive edge. The teaser page shows the A9 2020 from quite a few angles, and that reveals a few things, such as the device will have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a display with a V-shaped notch. The rear panel seems to have a glossy finish, and the teaser page suggests that the A9 2020 will be available in two gradient color options.
Oppo A9 2020 Will Cost Between INR 15,000 and INR 17,000
The Oppo A9 2020 will come as the successor to the A9 2019. Therefore, the A9 2020 will most probably carry the same price tag as its predecessor. The A9 2019 launched at INR 16,990. However, it is currently being sold at INR 15,490. Considering this, I think the A9 2020 will cost somewhere between INR 15,000 to INR 17,000. At that price point, the A9 2020 will compete directly with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro and the Realme 5 Pro.
