Oppo may be busy with the Oppo Reno series and even with the development of the Oppo Find X4 series, but nothing can’t prevent the company from launching a new Oppo K9 variant. Well, the brand has launched a set of K9 series smartphones this year. There’s a vanilla Oppo K9, a K9s, and even a K9 Pro variant. Now, it seems that a fourth member of the family is coming soon, at least for the Chinese market. A new device with model code PGCM10 has been certified by China’s TENAA. Thankfully, the certification reveals some of its specifications in the process.
New Oppo K9 variant (Oppo PGCM10) specifications
The new Oppo K9 variant will come with a large 6.5-inch LCD screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. Despite the low quality of the images, we can see a top-left punch-hole for the selfie camera. That’s a common spot for Oppo smartphones, so no surprises here. The device will draw its powers from a 5,000 mAh battery with 33 W fast-charging. It still runs Android 11 OS with ColorOS 11 on top and comes in three variants. There are 4 GB, 6 GB, and 8 GB RAM variants with 128 GB or 256 GB Storage options. For now, we don’t know how Oppo will configure each variant. However, we suspect that the 256 GB storage will be exclusive to the 8 GB of RAM version.

The Chinese authority also reveals brief details about the camera setup. The selfie snapper is a 16 MP shooter which should provide decent photos and video calls with great quality. Moving around to the back, there is a rectangular camera island comprising a 64 MP camera and two 2 MP units. We can easily determine that the latter two sensors are for macro and depth shooting. The smartphone’s rear panel also has a “09-K” written, which basically confirms its identity as a Oppo K9 smartphone.
The images further reveal that the Oppo PGCM10 smartphone has a volume rocker and a SIM Card slot on the left side frame. The power button is placed on the right and its form factor basically confirms it also works as a fingerprint scanner. The handset is 8.8 mm thick and weighs 191 grams. Unfortunately, the listing didn’t reveal if it will come with a MediaTek or Qualcomm chip at the helm. However, we expect this to be confirmed soon through a leaked Geekbench benchmark or even through another certification.
