On 10th May, Vivo is going to release a new variant of its X9 Smartphone. The listings on company’s official website reveal that the phone was launched in China earlier this month. The official sources further said that the company would produce the X9 NBA Edition in limited quantity. The handset will release in a far eastern country at the price of 2998 Chinese Yuan ($435/ INR 28,200).

This X9 Smartphone was released towards the end of last year in gold and Rose gold colors. In February this year, the Guangdong-based company released a new variant in Matte Black color. Now, the company is releasing the blue edition of this X9 Smartphone. This would be called NBA Edition, and it will cost $29 more than the other variants of the same model.

The manufacturer has shown in these listings that the Blue NBA Edition ships to the sellers along with many accessories. The customers will receive a Power Bank, a water bottle and a key ring on the purchase of this new X9 NBA Edition. All these accessories will feature official branding of National Basketball Association.

Coming to the detailed specs, the new Vivo X9 NBA Edition will also have 5.5 inches Full HD display with 1080X1920 pixels resolution. It will also have Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC processor paired with 4GB of RAM. The internal storage is 64GB, and there is also a slot for a memory card to extend device memory. The camera department consists of 16MP back shooter with LED flash. On the front, there is a 20MP and an 8MP dual camera setup to take depth images.

There are some differences between X9 and X9 NBA Edition. The first is the back with brand name engraved on it. The bezels on the front are black while the antenna lines on the back are white. Not only this, but there are also a lot of changes in the software running in the Smartphone. The software in this X9 NBA Edition has purely new interface with NBA special themes, wallpapers, and even icons.

Experts are thinking that this new edition will sell great in spite of the higher price tag. This is because of company’s branded accessories coming with the handset.
