Last month, Vivo expanded its “X” lineup with two new phones — Vivo X9 and Vivo X9 Plus. The biggest attraction, however, is their whopping 20-megapixel selfie camera, similar to the Vivo V5 which costs Rs 17,890 in India. The Vivo X9 is already up for sale since then with a starting price of 2798 Yuan (approximately Rs 27,700). However, pricing and availability details of the Vivo X9 Plus were kept hidden.
The Vivo X9 Plus comes with a 5.88-inch AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 pixel Full HD resolution. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 653 octa-core processor clocked at 1.9GHz coupled with 6GB RAM. It further embraces 64GB of internal storage with no support for storage expansion. On the camera front, the Vivo X9 Plus features a 16-megapixel combined LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and (Phase Detection Autofocus) PDAF.
