Vivo has announced a new flagship device in India today, the Vivo V9. The Vivo V9 comes with a notch up front and we shouldn’t be surprised from now on and it looks like all the companies are following the ‘Notch’ trend that was started by Essential phone and the iPhone X.The Vivo V9 comes with a 6.3-inch 2280 x 1080 LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and the notch up top helps to achieve a screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent and just 1.75mm bezel. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 626 processor, Adreno 506 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with microSD card support up to 256GB. It packs in a pretty decent 3260mAh battery and is running on Vivo’s Funtouch OS 4.0 skin on top of Android 8.1 Oreo.
Coming to the camera, there is a dual rear camera setup at the rear with the primary 16MP shooter that comes with a f/2.0 aperture and the secondary 5MP shooter with f/2.4 for getting those portrait shots by blurring the background. As seen in many other Vivo smartphone, the spotlight is given to the front camera that comes with a 24MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture with new AI technology to get better selfies. Vivo calls it ‘AI Face Beauty’ which uses machine learning to identify age, sex, skin tone, and texture in order to truly represent the beauty, said the company. There is also a selfie light feature that can capture selfies in low-light conditions, similar to what iPhone X does. Further, Vivo claims that the AI will boost the phone’s performance in general and calls it – AI Smart Engine’. Also, the phone comes with a fingerprint scanner at the rear and also it comes with face unlock feature which keeps getting better and better as the user uses it, thanks to the AI. Other features of the device are Dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, a Micro USB port, and a headphone jack.
