It is going to be raining water-drop notches for the next couple of months. OPPO kicked off the trend with its F9 and F9 Pro and we have seen phones from Honor and Vivo with a similar design. Now OPPO is back again with another phone, the OPPO A7X.
Official renders of the OPPO A7X have surfaced on the web and they show a device with a near identical design as the OPPO F9. Apart from having the same notch design, they share the same screen size and processor.
The OPPO A7X has a 6.3-inch 2340 x 1080 screen. It packs 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage while MediaTek’s Helio P60 chipset powers it. Just like the F9, it has dual cameras on its rear in a 16MP + 2MP configuration. However, it swaps the 25MP front-facing camera for a 16MP sensor.
The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo. It has the same dimensions as the OPPO F9 (156.7 x 74 x 7.99 mm) and even has the same weight (169 grams) even though it has a much larger battery capacity at 4230mAh. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back but it should also have Face Unlock. A MicroUSB port sits at the bottom along with a 3.5mm audio jack.
According to the source, the OPPO A7X will be launched on September 20 and will sell for ¥2099 (~$307). Based on the renders, the phone will be available in two colors – purple gradient and purple-black with a diamond design.
