Vivo launched its X9 smartphone in November, last year. Initially, the device was only sold in two different color variants: Gold and Rose Gold. Back in February Vivo released another Matte Black version of it. Now, after almost 6 months later, the company has come up with a special edition of the Vivo X9. This new edition will be available in a Blue color with NBA's logo housed on its back.
However, the front bezels are black and the antenna lines are white. What's more, not only the design, the user interface of the phone is also NBA-themed, in terms of wallpapers and icons. In addition to this, the Vivo X9 NBA edition will offer a power bank, a water bottle and an NBA key-ring. This special edition will carry a price tag of ¥2998 ($435) and will hit the market on May 10.
The other color variants are priced at ¥2798 ($406). Specs wise, nothing will change in this limited edition. To recall, let's go through the features and specifications of Vivo X9.
