Check out this cool 'Steph Curry NBA edition' phone

Today is the big day when the NBA finals kick off: the reigning champs, the Cleveland Cavaliers led by the determined LeBron James are facing the super-team of the Golden State Warriors with Kevin Durant and Steph Curry on board.

And just as millions will be tuning in to tonight's game, we learn about a brand new 'NBA edition' phone that looks decidedly cool: a special NBA edition of the Vivo X9.

Never heard of that phone? You are not alone: the Vivo X9 is a handset made in and for China, and it's not even available in the United States or in Europe, but its makeover is definitely something really cool. The phone gets a blue makeover in that signature 'NBA blue' hue, and it features antenna lines along the edges that are painted yellow, so overall it looks a lot like a Golden State Warriors uniform. It carries Steph Curry's jersey number '30' on the back and Curry's signature. It's also got a custom skin with a wallpaper, icons and typography all made to fit this Golden State Warriors / NBA look. 

Of course, this is a limited edition run that you unfortunately cannot buy in the West, but it makes us wonder: wouldn't something like that be a cool idea? And yes, we need a LeBron edition as well, just to be fair. Check it all out right below.

Genuinely thought this was an iPhone at first glance, until I noticed the headphone jack. What a sexy color combination, though. Blue body with yellow antenna lines actually looks awesome. Other OEMs, take note.

Looks like a blue iphone. Hope Steph Curry wasn't fooled into 'signing' this phone thinking it was the iphone.

Vivo is the sister company of oppo which also own one plus. Steps Curry is the official endorser of vivo in Asia.

It is definitely not NBA blue, that would be darker. The blue and gold are color schemes for the Golden State Warriors. And the reason there is only one for Steph is because he signed a big advertising contract with Vivo. Was just in the Beijing airport a couple weeks ago and his face is plastered everywhere.
