OPPO released the A9x in May 2019. It is a mid-range device with a 6.53-inch FHD+ display, a 4020mAh battery and the MediaTek Helio P70 CPU. This phone was released in only 1 RAM/storage configuration (6GB/128GB). However, it appears that the OEM has decided it's time for a second option.
Accordingly, the TENAA certification authority database entry for the A9x has been amended. It now shows that "8GB" has been added to the field for its RAM capacity. However, the same information for internal storage specs has remained unchanged. This suggests that OPPO intends to make and sell new units of the A9x with 2GB more working memory, albeit with the same fixed storage.
It is not clear why the OEM has taken this decision; perhaps the A9x is proving popular in its existing markets. It has its advantages, particularly its large battery. Then again, it is restricted to dual (48MP+2MP) cameras, whereas some new offerings in its general bracket boast 3. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how OPPO prices its putative new 8GB version of the A9x.
