Vivo has already announced that it is going to launch its new smartphone — Vivo V9 in India at a launch event that is scheduled to take place on 27th March. The phone is said to be the successor of the Vivo V7, which was launched in India in November last year.
Now, ahead of the official launch, the phone’s live images have leaked online, giving us a clear look at its design. The Vivo V9 will be featuring a full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a notch on the top — making it the first phone from Vivo to have a notch. However, this was confirmed by the teaser image posted by the company.
Apart from the full-screen display with minimal bezels on the sides, the newly leaked images suggest that the phone will also have a dual camera setup on the back. Because of thin bezels, the fingerprint sensor has also been placed on the back panel in the top-center region.
The dual cameras on the back are aligned vertically in the top-left corner along with an LED flash placed just below the camera sensors. Earlier, while teasing the phone, the company revealed one of the highlights of the Vivo V9 is featuring a 24-megapixel front-facing camera.
These newly leaked images also reveal that the phone will have a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom along with a micro USB port. We expect the phone to run on Android Oreo operating system with the company’s own FunTouch user interface on top. Currently, there is no more information available regarding the phone’s specifications.
While the company has confirmed the launch date of the Vivo V9 in India, it is yet to confirm the same for other markets. However, it seems that the Vivo V9 will be soon unveiled in Malaysia soon as the Malaysian Twitter handle of Vivo has been consistently teasing the features of a similar looking phone since the beginning of this month.
As of the pricing of Vivo V9 in India, we expect it to be somewhere around Rs. 25,000, which roughly converts to $385. But, we’ll have to wait for a few more weeks to know the phone’s specifications, pricing and availability details.
