After testing the waters with the ambitious Oppo Find X, Oppo introduced the Oppo R17 with its water-drop notch and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The water-drop notch which bears more of a resemblance to the Essential Phone than the iPhone X was carried over to the Oppo F9, and now, it appears the “water-drop” notch has come to say, as the brand now appears to be preparing a new device still with “waterdrop” notch.
As per a report by Mysmartprice, a new mid-range phone from Oppo could be arriving soon. According to the report, Oppo could be announcing the Oppo A7X with water drop notch display in China on September 20. Renders of the device making the round suggest the device would very much be similar to the Find 9 – featuring a horizontally placed dual rear camera setup with gold accents.
As for the specs, the specs sheet making the rounds matches that of the Oppo F9, fueling speculations that the alleged Oppo A7X could just be a rebadged Oppo F9 destined exclusivelyfor the Chinese market.
Its alleged specs include a 6.3-inch full HD+ LCD screen (19.5:9 screen ratio), MediaTek Helio P60 processor clocked at 2.0GHz paired with the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU , 4GB of RAM, 128GB storage, and a 16MP + 2MP dual rear cmaera setup. However, unlike the Oppo F9, the Oppo A7X uses a 16MP selfie camera in place of a 25Mp camera, while also ditching the F9 3,500mAh battery for a 4230mAh battery with no mention of fast charging support.
The device when launched in China could attract a price tag of CNY 2,099/ $306.
