Oppo has unveiled its newest smart TV lineup named Oppo K9 in China. There are three different smart TV models available in the lineup that also differ in specifications and features. This is a slightly different approach from the company as other brands usually launch the same set of features and specs across different display sizes.
The Oppo K9 smart TVs are available in 43-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch display size options. The first one sports a Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) panel with a 60Hz refresh rate, low-light Blue mode, and a typical brightness of 230 nits. The other two models feature a 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) panel with a 60Hz refresh rate, 93% DCI-P3 color gamut, and a typical brightness of 300 nits.
The 65-inch model has support for 60Hz dynamic MEMC compensation. However, you will get HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG support with all three smart TV models. Oppo has packed the 65-inch model with dual 15W speakers and the other two models have dual 10W speakers but there is Dolby Audio support for all the models.
In terms of performance, Oppo K9 TVs are powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT9652 processor with 2GB of RAM and G52 MC1 GPU. The smaller 43-inch model comes with 8GB of onboard storage and the other two models have 16GB storage space. All the TV models will run ColorOS TV 2.0 operating system out of the box.
The connectivity options include three HDMI ports, two USB ports, an Ethernet port, Bluetooth 5.0, and dual-band WiFi. You do get HDMI 2.1 port with the biggest model and only an HDMI 2.0 port with the other two. Oppo has priced the K9 smart TVs at CNY 1,999 (about $309), CNY 2,799 (about $433), and CNY 3,999 (about $618) for the 43-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch models respectively.
