If infusing new technology on smartphones, you could say Vivo is always at it. When new full-screen displays are the trend, Vivo turns out to be just as prepared to meet and offering their own brand with the latest in display technology. Now different brands has their own versions of the notch inspired from the iPhone X from Apple and so does the upcoming Vivo V9. From the fullView display to the dual-sensor cameras on the back that’s also coincidentally similar to the iPhone X and now the notch is also in.
Teased since last month, the Vivo V9 has gained quite the popularity even though this isn’t like the concept that the company have shown in MWC 2018 floors where the fingerprint sensor was integrated on the display. With the Vivo V9, the fingerprint scanner is still strategically and ergonomically located on the back.
What make this new leak more important the previous ones is that these aren’t renders but the actual device together with its retail box. In addition to that, the alleged specs for the Vivo V9 is also available online from one of the online retailers.
The Vivo V9 is said to feature a 6-inch AMOLED display with a full-HD+ resolution screen and is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
For photography, the handset will also compete in the Selfie-centric category with its own 24 Megapixel Selfie camera on the front. On the back, users will get a dual camera setup that includes a 12 Megapixel main sensor supported by an 8 Megapixel depth sensing camera and LED flash.
Weighing at around 159 grams it includes a 3250 mAh embedded battery that keeps its lights on and boots Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with FunTouch OS 4.0 on top. The Vivo V9 will be introduced in Thailand this March 22nd with a price of around $349.
Apart from the image leaks, Vivo Indonesia’s YouTube channel can’t seem to wait for the official announcement of the handset that they have already posted the official promotional video of the Vivo V9 ahead of launch. This seems to be intentional as the channel haven’t removed the said promotional material since then.
