Oppo held a big event today, introducing a new smartphone, simply called Oppo K9 5G. The company also unveiled new TWS earphones called Oppo Enco Air, a band called Oppo Band Vitality, and new series of TV under the name Oppo Smart TV K9 – yes, just like the phone.

Oppo Enco Air

The wireless audio accessory comes as a lighter alternative to the Oppo Enco X. The buds come with a 12 mm driver with a composite titanium-plated diaphragm moving coil. They have 25 mAh batteries, while the case brings 440 mAh to the table, totaling the music playback up to 24 hours, 4 of them on a single charge.

The Enco Air also has a designated Game Mode that lowers the Bluetooth to 47 ms. Other specs include IPX4 certification against water ingress, 3.75 g weight of a single bud (40.4 g is the case), and touch controls for volume, calls, and track changes.

The price of Oppo Enco Air is set at CNY249, which is about $39. It is already available for pre-order on JD.com and Oppo China’s website in four colors – Black, Blue, White, Green.

Oppo also teased Enco Buds, however, there weren’t any specs. The company simply said the buds will be launched on May 20.

Oppo Smart TV K9

The K9 lineup of smart TVs is entirely new in Oppo’s portfolio. The TV comes in three sizes – 43”, 55”, and 65”. They have some differences, but here’s what is common between all three of them – an MT9652 chipset with quad-core CPU and 2 GB RAM.

The smallest of three TVs has 1080p resolution and a DLED display with 230 nits of brightness. However, the other two come with 4K and 300 nits of brightness, as well as a 93% DCI-P3 color gamut and the 65” supports MEMC dynamic compensation of the picture.

The 43” model has dual 10W speakers and 8 GB internal storage, while the 55” and 65” variants are upgraded to 15W speakers and double the storage for movies and pictures.

Price-wise, the 43” goes for CNY1,799 ($275), the middle sibling is CNY1,999 ($310), while the biggest diagonal costs the most – CNY3,299, or about $510. The prices can get a bit lower if a customer purchases an Oppo K9 smartphone.

Oppo Band Vitality

The “vitality” in the moniker is machine-translated, but also could be translated as “Youth”, which is generally a Lite variant of the vanilla model. In this case, we have a smart band with a 1.1” AMOLED display. There is a continuous heart rate, real-time SpO2 monitor, and sleep tracker. The device also has a water resistance of up to 50 meters.

According to the official website, the Band Vitality can live 14 days on a single charge, even with 24-hour heart rate tracking.

Available in Blue or Orange, the wearable can be pre-ordered now at CNY149 which is just $23.
