Or extend the battery life of the old one.

In terms of image quality in low light, both of those models are about a stop better.
You'll see slightly more noise in low light at high ISO's with the GX9 compared to the other two but as a M43 user myself, you can still push ISO's up pretty high. I've gone up to 5000 ISO with great results at night.
Below is a comparison between the GX9 and the two models you mentioned so you can see how they compare in low light. Also threw the Canon 80D which has about the same performance as M43 sensors in low light. Link added as well.

I had the a6000 and it took amazing pictures, but a few things led me to selling it and looking for something better. The menu was horribly designed, it just seemed awkward in my hands and the lens selection was slim to none without spending as much as the camera cost. Here are a few reviews of the Panny compared to other cameras... https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/...-dc-gx9/10
Compared to other cameras

Sony a6300: The 24MP APS-C sensor in the a6300 comes with more resolution and dynamic range than the GX9, and a kit with a lens is around the same price. It's a better camera for demanding uses, such as landscapes or sports, but the GX9 handles better, has better controls (including a touchscreen) and a more responsive interface. For outright image quality, the a6300 wins, but for the most engaging experience as well as a broader selection of lenses designed for it, the GX9 comes out on top.
Olympus PEN-F: The PEN-F comes with the same 20MP sensor found in the GX9 and, though it comes with a high-resolution image stacking mode, the GX9 comes with better video capture. In the end, your decision is likely to come down to price (the PEN-F is more expensive) and which one you think looks better (we lean toward the PEN-F in this regard). The PEN-F's viewfinder is higher quality but it doesn't tilt. All told, both are solid Micro Four Thirds options.
Panasonic GX85 / GX80 / GX7 Mark II: The older GX85 still has a lot going for it, especially considering its lower price point. The GX9 will have more detail from its higher-resolution sensor, and of course includes the tilting viewfinder. Panasonic has also made significant strides in its JPEGs in the time between these two options as well. We'd recommend the GX9 if you can afford it, but for those on a budget the GX85 is also a lovely camera to use and still offers good image quality, particularly in Raw.
Panasonic GX8: Whether you prefer the GX8's articulating screen to the GX9's tilting screen is a personal preference, but the better viewfinder on the GX8 is sure to find universal praise. Overall though, the newer sensor, JPEG engine, shutter mechanism and updated controls on the GX9 make it a more compelling option in our eyes than the still-more-expensive (and larger) GX8.
