As you can see in the photo above, CPUz app is clearly showing the change. The upgrade to X23 is an enhanced version of MediaTek’s successful Helio X20 SoC that is clocked lower that its newer version. What’s more, despite the fact that the new configuration should be more expensive, the Hi9 Air will retain its price at just $239.99 on Amazon US and £189.54 on Amazon UK during the flash sale that is scheduled to run on October 14th from 11:15 BST to 17:15 BST. So, same price, better performance!
