  • Oppo Enco Air TWS earbuds are the latest ones from company with affordable price.
  • Oppo has launched its second series of smart televisions in China.
  • Oppo has launched the products in China as of now.

Oppo pulled a Realme today when it launched a flurry of new products, including a new smartphone, a new fitness band, a new smart television, and a new pair of truly wireless earbuds. They are called K9 5G, Oppo Band Vitality Edition, Smart TV K9, and Enco Air. The brand new products are primarily for the buyers in China and Oppo has not said anything about bringing these products to India or other markets. The highlighted product from the lot is the new Enco Air truly wireless earbuds that come with a translucent lid on the charging case, and a promise of 24-hour battery life.

There is a new Oppo K9 5G smartphone that we have covered separately. It essentially forms the basis for all the other products -- with one of them taking the name even. Oppo's new smart television is called the Oppo Smart TV K9 after the phone, and it comes in three sizes. This is the second range of smart televisions from Oppo. The first TV models debuted in China last year. For now, all the television models from Oppo are available in China, and there is no way to tell whether they will be headed to India anytime soon.

Oppo Enco Air TWS earbuds specifications, price

The Oppo Enco Air is a new pair of affordable, truly wireless earbuds. It comes with what Oppo calls a transparent lid so that you can see the earbuds inside. But, in reality, this lid is translucent but you can still see what is inside the lid. The Enco Air comes in white, green, black, and blue colours and they all look peppy. The Enco Air earbuds use a 12mm dynamic driver with a titanium-plated diaphragm moving coil for producing bass-rich sounds. They have an in-ear fit with silicone ear tips. Each earbud weighs 3.75 grams, which makes them pretty light to use. There is a long stem on the Enco Air, which reminds you of the Enco Free that the company launched last year.

According to the company, the Oppo Enco Air can offer a total playback time of 24 hours with a charging case, where the 25mAh battery inside each earbud can give around 4 hours of playback time. The charging case alone has a 440mAh battery inside, along with a USB-C port for fast charging. Oppo says the Enco Air can offer 8 hours of playback with 10 minutes of charge. The earbuds use Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless connection and support AAC and SBC codecs on both Android and iOS devices. There are dual microphones for call noise reduction on the earbuds but they lack active noise cancellation, and rightly so. There is a 47ms low-latency on the earbuds and support for the deep neural network (DNN) to simulate the human binaural hearing system. This algorithm also helps in producing better sound quality.

The Oppo Enco Air earbuds cost CNY 249, which is roughly Rs 2,800.

Oppo Smart TV K9 specifications, price

The Oppo Smart TV K9 is the latest smart television by the Chinese company. They come in 43-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch sizes. The 43-inch model comes with support for Full-HD (1080p) resolution while the resolution on the other two maxes out at 4K Ultra-HD resolution. There is support for HDR10+ on the 55-inch and 65-inch models, with the latter only supporting MEMC dynamic compensation up to 60Hz to make transitions seem smooth. Oppo is touting 93 per cent of DCI-P3 colour gamut and 1.07 billion colours on the 4K models, as well as a colour accuracy of less than 2 on Delta E.

The 65-inch and 55-inch 4K models come with 15W full-range speakers, while the 43-inch 1080p model has 10W stereo speakers. All three models support Dolby Audio with the feature to play music with the screen turned off to save power. Oppo has also given the Tencent START cloud gaming platform on the televisions. There is 2GB of RAM on all TV models. Storage-wise, however, the 4K models come with 16GB while the 43-inch model has 8GB only. There is an MT9652 quad-core A73 processor with a G52 MC1 GPU inside all models. The TVs run ColorOS TV 2.0. Their remote control is Bluetooth-enabled with far-field recognition technology.

The Oppo Smart TV K9 43-inch costs CNY 1,799 (roughly Rs 20,500), the 55-inch version is priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs 22,800), and, finally, the 65-inch model costs CNY 3,299, which is roughly Rs 37,700. Oppo will also sell webcams separately with 4K models for video calling.
