Vivo last week announced that it would add a Matte black color variant to the X9 which was launched last year, coming in just gold and rose gold variants. Vivo has now officially listed the Vivo X9 Matte Black version up for sale and sales is already on, with the new version still clutching the same 2798 Yuan (around $406) price tag the earlier color variants launched with. As if that isn’t enough, Vivo is also offering a Bluetooth headset along with each purchase.
On the looks, the Matte Black color variant of the X9 comes with a refreshed, premium and sleek look. The display seems to have been changed from the Super AMOLED screen on the gold and rose gold versions to a JDI display on this new color version. The thickness of the device has also seen an increase of 0.27mm but that doesn’t affect the feel of the phone as it still has a compact build.
On the specs angle, the Vivo X9 Matte Black still features a 5.5-inch Full HD display and is powered by a 2.0GHz Snapdragon 625 chip with a 4GB RAM providing some support. The X9 also comes with 64GB of internal storage and packs a built-in 3050mAh battery under its hood.
