We recently revealed that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo is in the works to launch a new smartphone in India which will be the first smartphone to be launched by the company in the country this year. As far as Vivo’s latest smartphone is concerned, we have known that the smartphone will be named as the Vivo V9 which will be the successor to the Vivo V7 and V7+ launched last year. As far as the Vivo V9 is concerned, the company has announced the launch date and the event is scheduled to take place on March 27 in India.
The smartphone is expected to include 24-megapixel camera on the front to take selfies. It supports Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. The leaks on GSMArena revealed that Vivo V9 smartphone will involve Rs 25,000 price in Indian markets. The phone is also expected to come with a micro-USB port (in 2018 that seems like an anomaly). Thankfully, Vivo has retained the 3.5 mm audio jack. The phone is also expected to run Android Oreo out of the box along with FunTouch user interface atop it.
On the other hand, Vivo V7 comes with 5.7-inch HD+ IPS FullView display, supports Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core SoC. It has 4GB of RAM and involves 32GB of inbuilt storage. It has 16-megapixel rear camera and on the front involves 24-megapixel camera to take selfies. The handset runs on Android 7.1 Nougat. It supports dual-SIM support, Bluetooth, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm audio jack. It has a cost of Rs 16,990.
