Breakthrough charging: Rapid Charge with VOOC
OPPO found that the most common problem of Indian and Southeast Asian users is their smartphone’s battery life. These consumers often land in some awkward situations where they are running out of battery. Keeping these in mind, OPPO F9 Pro comes with VOOC Flash Charge. This technology, independently developed by OPPO, applies low voltage charging technology and has a charging speed which is up to four times faster than general charging at 5V/1A. And if you’re in a hurry, a quick 5-minute charge is enough to maintain 2 hours of talk.
