A few days back, it was revealed that Chinese smartphone maker OPPO will be launching a new A series smartphone in China later this month. The smartphone, dubbed A7X, has now been listed on the company’s website in China, confirming its key features as well as pricing.
OPPO A7X: Price, Availability
The OPPO A7X listing on the OPPO Shop China website reveals the smartphone will be available in a single configuration with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It has been priced at 2,099 yuan (Rs.22,000 approx.) and will be available in two colors – Star Purple and Ice Flame Blue. While the previous leak had suggested the A7X will be launched in China on September 20, the official listing confirms the smartphone will go on sale for the first time on September 14th at 10:00 AM. Reservations for the smartphone are now open in the country.
OPPO A7X: Specifications, Features
The OPPO A7X features a 6.3-inch display with a waterdrop notch and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. While the listing does not confirm the display resolution, it does reveal that the A7X has a 90.8% screen-to-body ratio. The resolution of the panel, going by the previous leak, could be 1080 x 2340. Both the screen size as well as the screen-to-body ratio of the A7X are identical to the OPPO F9. Under the hood, the A7X runs on a 12nm MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. In the memory department, the A7X will feature 4GB of RAM, coupled with 128GB of internal storage. While the amount of RAM is identical to the F9 sold in India, the A7X has twice the storage.
For selfies, the A7X is equipped with a 16MP AI selfie camera with AI Smart Beauty that boasts intelligent recognition of 296 facial features to beautify your selfies. At the rear, OPPO A7X features a dual-camera setup with the primary sensor being a 16MP unit. The resolution of the secondary sensor has not been mentioned in the official listing. However, seeing how the A7X is very similar to the OPPO F9, we can expect it to have a 2MP secondary sensor for depth-sensing. The rear cameras offer an AI portrait mode with 5 kinds of portrait lighting. In terms of software, the OPPO A7X will be running on the Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColorOS 5.2 out of the box.
While the OPPO A7X has hardware specifications more or less identical to the OPPO F9 sold in India, it is rumored to pack a significantly bigger battery. While the OPPO F9 packs a 3500mAh capacity battery, the A7X is rumored to feature a 4230mAh capacity battery. The previous leak did not mention anything with regards to fast charging support, so there is a chance that the A7X may not come with the same VOOC Flash Charge technology as the OPPO F9 Pro. As can be clearly seen in the renders above, the A7X will feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as well.
OPPO A7X: Expected Price in India
As we mentioned above already, the A7X is very similar to the F9 and F9 Pro smartphones that were launched in India last month. This suggests the A7X will not be launched in the Indian market.
