Vivo India has unveiled its latest flagship phone – Vivo V9 in India. Being a successor to its previous Vivo V7, the V9 features a 6.3-inch FHD FullView display 2.0 with a new 19:9 aspect ratio. The company claims the V9 is the first smartphone to have a 90 per cent screen-to-body-ratio display.
The Vivo V9 comes with a whopping 24MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 16MP+5MP dual rear camera setup. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 chipset with an octa-core processor. It boasts 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 64GB of storage. It is fuelled by a 3260mAh battery. It comes with Android 8.1 out-of-the-box, which is skinned by the company’s FuntouchOS 4.0. The V9 also comes with fingerprint scanner mounted at the back for biometric authentication.
The phone features the heavily inspired iPhone X notch in the front. However, it isn’t using any 3D FaceID-like tech, instead, it relies on a software-based facial unlock system. It boasts a 24MP AI-powered selfie camera. The AI-powered selfie camera features support for gender detection, AR stickers, Face beauty video call and the most popular portrait lighting effect targeted for all the selfie enthusiasts.
