Oppo recently took the wraps off the Oppo A9 – a budget-oriented smartphone for the Chinese public that fits premium specifications over a big screen for just CNY 1,799 ($267). Now, even if that amount of money is way too much for you, the Chinese firm will now introduce a toned down version for a lower cost.
The standard variant of the Oppo A9 comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of Internal Storage, while the new variant will come with 4GB of RAM and the same 128GB of Internal Storage. So, if you don’t need extra 2GB of RAM for heavy multitasking, you can choose to pay a little less for the new variant. After all, 4GB of RAM still is more than enough to run Android perfectly, even with Oppo’s standard ColorOS running atop.

The new variant costs CNY 1,399 ($206) and is currently up for pre-order with shipping starting on May 10 in China. In the case you’ve missed the A9 launch, the new midrange ships with MediaTek’s Helio P70 and has a 6.53-inch display with 2340×1080 pixels of resolution. On the camera department, the handset is composed by a dual 16MP+2MP on the rear, while a 16MP snapper takes the show at the front. The handset counts with a 4020mAh battery which is charged via a standard micro USB port.
