OPPO invited us to an exclusive showcase of their new F9 Jade Green smartphone, where we got some hands-on time. Here is our hands-on preview of the limited-edition OPPO F9 Jade Green smartphone!
Why Jade Green?
It has become an OPPO trend to introduce a smartphone model with limited colour options, and dribble out additional colours over time.
Just 3 months ago, OPPO introduced the F9 Starry Purple. Now, to kick off 2019, they are introducing the limited-edition OPPO F9 Jade Green.
Why? Because Chinese New Year is right around the corner, and they believe the Jade Green colour would be popular with Chinese users.
According to OPPO, this is a limited edition, with a single production run of a few thousand units.
