Vivo has recently launched the Vivo APEX flagship smartphone. The company is also prepping to launch the Vivo V9, a new mid-range phone in the market. It is expected to arrive as a successor for the Vivo V7. The Chinese manufacturer has already started teasing it as it was spotted on a billboard ad in the previous week. A couple of leaked photos showing the actual V9 handset have also appeared this week to reveal its front and rear design.
The front view of the Vivo V9 shows that its design is inspired from the iPhone X. However, it features a smaller notch compared to Apple’s phone. A smaller notch on the Vivo V9 will allow it to deliver higher screen-to-body ratio than the iPhone X.
The image showing the backside of the phone reveals that it has a vertically arranged dual camera setup on the top-left corner. The rear panel also features a fingerprint scanner which indicates that the mid-range phone won’t be arriving with under-display fingerprint reader. The handset seems to be sporting a metallic chassis.
There is no information available on the specifications of the phone. However, it has been revealed through its appearance on billboard that it will be arriving with a 24-megapixel selfie camera. It appears that the Vivo V9 will be retaining the same selfie camera that was made available on the predecessor. However, it may arrive with some sort of improvements. The Vivo V7 is fueled by Snapdragon 450 chipset. It is speculated that the Vivo V9 may include Snapdragon 660 chipset.
