Vivo is set to launch two new phones, the Vivo X9 and Vivo X9 Plus on the 16th of November. News of the upcoming devices have been in circulation for weeks now and one feature that has been confirmed is the use of dual-front facing cameras akin to what you have on the LG V10. However, the full configuration of both phones have been leaked online, confirming previous leaks and revealing new details.
The Vivo X9 will have a 5.5” Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and an unspecified snapdragon processor. The front facing cameras are a combination of a 20MP sensor and an 8MP sensor with soft light, and there is a 16MP shooter on the rear.
The Vivo X9 will have a 3050mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner,and a dedicated AK4376 HiFi audio chip. The bands supported have also been listed as: B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B8, B38, B39, B40, and B41.
Vivo X9 Plus
The Vivo X9 Plus is not only bigger with a larger 5.88-inch FHD screen, but also sports a 6GB RAM, and a larger 4000mAh battery. Storage is the same at 64GB and the processor is Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 653. It has the same camera setup as the X9 but uses dual HiFi audio chips (ES9018+ES9603). Band support is no different too.
Both phones are expected to feature Corning’s 5th generation Gorilla Glass and have narrow bezels. Promotional images have already confirmed the new U-shaped antenna design. The Vivo X9 is presumed to start at ¥2500 ($368) and will be launched at the Beijing Water Cube next week Wednesday.
