Vivo stole the show at MWC 2018 with its APEX concept phone. With a launch scheduled for next week, Vivo sure has been busy. But it appears that is not the only device they have been working on. A billboard for the Vivo V9 was recently seen and it hints at a launch happening soon.
We guess Vivo is skipping the number 8 for the V-series and jumping straight to 9. We have no idea why Vivo would do this since the Chinese culture considers 8 to be the luckiest number.
The Vivo V9 is shown on the billboard rocking a display with a notch just like that of Apple’s iPhone X. The bezels on the sides are quite thin and the bottom bezel is smaller than that of the Vivo V7.
The Vivo V9 also comes with a 24MP selfie camera like its predecessors but it may not be the exact sensor as the billboard says it is “new”.
There are a lot we still don’t know about the Vivo V9 but there are rumors it will launch with dual rear cameras and be powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor. It is also expected to launch in March.
A few weeks ago, it was reported that Vivo was planning to launch two new full-screen phones in India and discontinue production of the Vivo V7 and Vivo V7+. The Vivo V9 may be one of the two devices scheduled to replace the V7 duo.
