Oppo F9 revealed: I guess waterdrop notches are Oppo’s thing now

Oppo's erstwhile sub-brand, RealMe which recently went independent has been off to a positive start with its first product, the RealMe 1 which has been a success both critically and commercially. The device was listed on the company website which also gave a glimpse of its design. Of course, these additions also mean the RealMe 2 certainly won't be as affordable as the RealMe 1. Although there has been no official announcement of this phone from the company, below are the pointers that we have collected based on rumours and hints. From the image, it is clear that Realme 2 will come loaded with a notch at the top. The poster was taken down soon after it was seen on the website. The render was titled "A Notch Above", which confirms that the Realme 2 will have a notched display. However, the phone maker has already begun gearing up for a successor. However, this new teaser poster did confirm some of the speculations about the new phone. The phone also comes with a taller form factor. Apart from that, the company revealed a blue colour variant for this new phone. For starters, multiple users complained about the lack of fingerprint sensor in Realme 1 and no presence of dual rear cameras, which becomes a hygiene feature in the smartphone industry, especially, at this price point. Furthermore, the device seems to feature a diamond-cut rear panel finish which is identical to that in the Realme 1. Given that Realme 2 is a budget offering, it is expected to come with a slight improvement compared to its predecessor. However, it's probable to expect the Realme 2 to run Oppo's ColorOS user interface just like the Realme 1. The price has been pegged given its similarity to the Oppo F7 which retails for Rs 19,990 for the 64GB variant.
