Oppo A9x now official – more powerful than A9

Yesterday, Oppo announced the A9x – a slightly more powerful version of the A9 that came out last month. The biggest change here is the 48MP main sensor at the back which replaces the 16MP unit present on the A9.

Another difference between these two phones is regarding the battery. Both pack a 4,020 mAh cell, but the A9x comes with support for VOOC 3.0 fast charging which is missing from the vanilla A9.

That said, the A9x retains the rest of the hardware from the A9, including the Helio P70 SoC, 6GB RAM, 6.53-inch FHD+ display, and the 16MP selfie shooter.

The smartphone has 128GB of storage onboard, runs Android Pie-based ColorOS 6, and is offered in Meteorite Black and Ice Jade White colors.

The Oppo A9x costs $289 and will go on sale in China from May 21.
