TP-Link announced the latest entry under its Neffos smartphone brand. The new Neffos X9 boasts an advanced dual-camera system around the back and a large Full-View Display on the front – and incorporates them into an attractive polycarbonate body with a premium metallic look and feel.
With the Neffos X9, sophisticated elegance and superior durability combine with excellent everyday features for the ultimate value-for-money smartphone experience.
The Neffos brand was created by TP-Link to provide customers around the world quality and affordable smartphones. Its founding company has been recognized as the undisputed global leader in wireless-network products, operating in more than 170 countries and regions worldwide throughout its 22-year history.
TP-Link has earned the loyalty and trust of hundreds of millions of satisfied customers, thanks to product lines that are high-performance, cost-effective, and reliable.
Jason Xu, Chief Executive Officer, Neffos said, “The belief that excellent smartphones need not be priced over-the-top lies at the foundation of our success, and the new Neffos X9 is designed to prove that. We believe in our continued efforts and hope to drive the brand’s sales and share growth in Malaysia and across the globe.
Cameras made for moments
Built for capturing moments that matter, the Neffos X9 is equipped with 13- and 5- megapixel rear cameras that work together to produce stunning portrait-style photos with a sharp subject and blurred background, effectively mimicking what a professional camera is capable of.
Phase-detection auto-focus leads to faster and more accurate focusing, while the f/2.0 aperture lens allows for greater depth of field, resulting in a more dramatic effect.
The 8-megapixel camera on the front ensures crisp details and realistic colours and features a wider field of view for taking group selfies. It also comes integrated with image-enhancement algorithms from ArcSoft, as well as an AI Beautify mode that enables a live preview of the many beautification choices at the camera’s disposal.
Big and intelligent Full-View Display
Sporting and massive 5.99-inch Full-View touch display, the Neffos X9 sets the standard for immersive and expansive viewing and gaming experiences in its price range. It runs at HD+ resolution with a trendy aspect ratio of 18:9. It’s also manufactured using in-cell technology and engineered to deliver a sharper and more vivid picture.
At 1.9mm, the bezels surrounding the Full-View Display mode are about as thin as they get, while the 86.4 percent screen-to-body ratio maximises the panel coverage and allows the bigger display to fit onto the device without much impact to its size.
For night owls, switching to the X9’s Night Display mode intelligently dim the screen’s brightness as lighting conditions change, for an easier-on-the-eye viewing experience at night. Eye Protection mode, meanwhile, further reduces eye strain by minimizing blue-light emission by up to 89 percent. Users can set a time to automatically activate the function for all-day eye care.
Convenient and safe to use
Designed with user comfort and convenience in mind, the Neffos X9 has a fingerprint sensor on the back for unlocking the phone within the fraction of a second. Face Unlock is also onboard, with the latest AI technology incorporated into the feature. Face Unlock verifies the user’s identity by scanning over 100 different facial details to pixel-level accuracy.
The X9 is also powered by Android 8.1 Oreo, which brings in a bunch of new changes to the platform, not the least of which are security updates that fix vulnerabilities that could be exploited.
Impressively fast and efficient
The Neffos X9 has an octa-core processor inside, complemented by dual-core Mali T860 graphics and either 3GB / 4 GB of RAM. The high-end processor that is integrated with a powerful GPU and plenty or memory offers butter-smooth navigation and consistently fluid gaming experiences on the phone.
The Neffos X9 will come in two variants, 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage. Both variants will be available in two colours – Space black and Moonlight Silver. The Neffos X9 3GB with 32GB internal storage variant is now available in stores in Malaysia at an amazing retail price of RM649, meanwhile the Neffos X9 4GB and 64GB internal storage variant will be available at the end of August for RM799.
