Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo is going to launch the Vivo V9 in india on March 23. In the previous month, the Chinese manufacturer had launched its own online store in India. A listing on Vivo India’s website reveals several details and specifications about the upcoming Vivo V9. Lets have a look over its features and specification.
Vivo V9 Specifications –
Upcoming Vivo V9 features a 6.3-inch full-HD+ IPS display with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels sporting the 19:9 aspect ratio. It measures 154.81 x 75.03 x 7.89 mm and weighs 150 grams. Under the hood, the device has Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 SoC, which is coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The internal memory is expandable upto 256GB via microSD card slot. The device will come with a ‘triple card slot’ where users have the option to add dual micro SIM cards and a micro SD card.
Rear side of the phone is fitted with vertical dual camera setup that includes 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with LED flash. While you’ll get a front camera featuring a 24-megapixel sensor. Both of the cameras have f/2.0 aperture.

As per the company listing, vivo v9 will be available in Pearl Black and Gold colour options. Also this device has a iPhoneX like notch on the display and surprisingly comes with the same type of wallpaper seen on iPhone X. Seems like Vivo knows the best usage of CTRL + C and CTRL + V.
Also the forthcoming V9 is now listed on Vivo India’s online store with its entire specifications and images with an interesting pricing of Rs. 1 crore (10 million). Nothing to get surprised ! It is just a placeholder. Recent leaks have claimed that it could be priced around Rs. 25,000 ($385) in India.
While i don’t see anything much attractive in this Vivo V9. I don’t know why ! But almost every Android Smartphone Manufacturer is just copying iPhoneX’s Notch design. But this one is like a dummy of the iPhone X. Also the processor is not high-end, or you can say other specs are average. And if the above price comes true ! then the price is much high as there’re many better options available in the market. It would be good option if the price is below Rs.15,000 – Rs.16,000. What do you think ? let me know.
