Within 2,000 yuan, this is the price range for many people to choose an economical and practical backup machine. However, OPPO recently launched a new OPPO K9s with a pre-sale price of 1499 yuan, but it mainly focuses on powerful game cores and performance stacking, large batteries, high brushes, X-axis motors, and liquid cooling. There are many features, and shouted: “I’m so strong” slogan. Then follow IT Home to see how it performs.
Appearance and Design
First look at the packaging, the usual large quantity and full style.
The long white box contains the mobile phone body, USB-A to C data cable, 30W charger, water sleeve, card needle and warranty card manual, etc. The mobile phone is also pasted with a protective film, which is not environmentally friendly at all.
As a quasi-thousand-yuan machine, the appearance materials and design language of OPPO K9s will definitely be compromised. It uses a 6.59-inch LCD straight screen with a screen-to-body ratio of 90.8%.
In the upper left corner of the screen there is a 1600W pixel digging hole front camera, there is no black overflow around the digging hole, which is OK.Slightly wider chin, bezel and thick black anti-shock rubber ring between screen.
There are also extremely advanced 3.5mm headphone jacks, which are in line with the tuning of the thousand yuan machine. However, the side fingerprint power button next to it is not counted. After all, some belief products that sell for thousands of dollars are also side fingerprints.
The volume keys are placed on the left side of the fuselage, and the Sim card slot is placed above the volume keys to accommodate the headphone jack at the bottom. The right side of the USB-C interface is a set of single speakers, so when holding the game horizontally, There is a certain chance that the speaker will be blocked, and plugging in wired headphones will also have a certain impact on the operation. These are also the products of compromises and trade-offs on the OPPO K9s.
The back shell craftsmanship, feel and screen experience are the strengths of the OPPO K9s. In terms of hand feel, the thickness of the whole machine is 8.52mm, the weight of the bare metal is 199g, the transition part between the rear shell and the middle frame is relatively round, and the parts of the middle frame and the shock-proof rubber ring have also been tightened in a trapezoidal shape to ensure that the phone is more sticky when held. Close palms. The other is the frosted glass material of the back shell. This Obsidian Samurai in my hand adopts the matte coating process, the surface haze is very high, and the hand feel is relatively delicate.
The design of the lens module part is quite satisfactory, using a mahjong-style three-camera arrangement. The three lenses are a combination of 6400W pixel main camera + 800W pixel wide-angle + 200W pixel macro. In order to make it recognizable, OPPO added a matte grille track texture and a laser-engraved model character design on the right side of the lens to make the rear shell more e-sports. Among them, the character design of the 09-Ks model shows individuality, the Super Performance logo shows its main game experience attributes with a hard core, and there is a battery-like icon on the right side of the Super, suggesting that the large battery is always fully charged. A lot of careful thought.
In terms of screen experience, the LCD screen of OPPO K9s has a refresh rate of 120Hz, a touch sampling rate of 240Hz, a resolution of 2412×1080, and can cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The maximum outdoor brightness can reach 600nit. The Display effect can be guaranteed.
OPPO K9s has introduced a 6-speed refresh rate variable adjustment function for different usage scenarios. When watching video resources, the mobile phone will recognize and automatically adapt to 3 refresh rates of 30 frames, 48 frames and 50 frames according to the frame rate of the video itself. The default refresh rate for daily use is 60Hz, and the game is adapted to two gears of 90Hz and 120Hz. Users can also manually select the global two gears of 60Hz and 120Hz. On the one hand, the adaptation of high brush can make the visual look and feel more smooth and silky, eliminate smear, and on the other hand, it can better exert the hardware performance of the mobile phone and save power intelligently.
The 240Hz sampling rate ensures smooth vision and smooth operation with the hands, so that the fingers cannot keep up with the brain’s response, which is the best time to make moves when the game is wrong. This is actually a must-have skill for mobile gaming experience. Another global AI eye protection function, based on the characteristics of the LCD screen, can learn the user’s backlight habits and brightness preferences through AI, intelligently adjust the screen brightness, and optimize the screen contrast at the same time. Experience more comfortable.
Hardware and Gaming
Of course, putting aside the hardware to talk about the experience is a hooligan. Since the main performance experience, then the hardware stacking has to be downloaded. The OPPO K9s is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G processor, which is quite capable in this price range. The storage combination is available in 6+128GB, 8+128GB, supports memory expansion, game 4D vibration, equipped with X-axis linear motor and 5000mAh large battery. In terms of heat dissipation, OPPO K9s adopts a heat dissipation system composed of 7 kinds of thermal conductive materials such as graphite sheet, liquid-cooled heat dissipation copper pipe, high thermal conductivity aluminum, and copper foil to ensure that the heat can be quickly dissipated when the firepower is fully turned on in the game. Hot to the touch.
Before testing the game, let’s take a look at what optimizations OPPO K9s has done for the game at the system level. First, the game space is made more complete and intuitive. On the main page, you can see the current game list and basic information such as performance and battery.
Swipe up the menu, there are three performance modes to choose from, and there are more optimization option switches below, which are very rich in functions, including enhancing the game experience and optimizing the game environment.
Although many functions are very familiar to everyone, the function of this lightning start is quite interesting. When you return to the desktop from the game, but do not kill the game in the multitasking background, the system will automatically temporarily save the game in the background, and you can skip the Loading loading screen and enter directly when you enter the game next time.
As shown in the figure, when I return to the desktop from Genshin Impact, when I enter the multitasking interface, a black mask will appear under the game, and a green lightning bolt will appear to start the logo animation. At this time, click the game to start playing immediately. If you are more dependent on this function, then it is recommended that you open another function, memory expansion.
That’s right, OPPO K9s can open up to 5GB of memory expansion in the settings. Due to the positioning of the mobile phone, it only has a maximum of 8GB of memory, so this memory expansion can be used in the 8GB or even more basic 6GB version.
Then there is the side toolbar after entering the game. There are also many options, but for an LCD screen, this surreal picture quality may be the most useful, it can intelligently enhance the brightness, saturation and contrast of the game screen, making the color of the picture more pleasing.
What about the actual game performance? In the office environment with room temperature of 23 degrees, IT Home defaults to 70% screen brightness and 50% volume, and the Wi-Fi network is turned on as the test environment, and the performance mode selects the gaming mode. The first is the glory of the king. When playing a ranking game with full special effects (about 15 minutes), the average frame rate is stable at 90 frames, the power consumption is 4%, and the surface of the mobile phone is only slightly warm.
Then there is QQ Speed, which sets the picture quality and frame rate to the highest. The average frame rate of the 20-minute prop game is 84.5 frames, and the power consumption is 7%. The frame rate fluctuations are basically cutscenes after the game. The surface of the phone is still only Slightly warm. It can be said that OPPO K9s can fully open firepower in many mainstream mobile games, and play with full blood.
Overall, OPPO K9s still gave us a little surprise. At the quasi-thousand-yuan machine price of less than 2,000 yuan, OPPO provides players with a more personalized rear shell design, an LCD screen that protects the eyes and looks good, and many software and hardware optimizations for the gaming experience.
