Vivo X9, X9 Plus With 20-Megapixel Selfie Camera Launched

On: November 16, 2016

Vivo has expanded its ‘X’ series by launching two new phones — the Vivo X9 and X9 Plus, in China. The news comes just a day after Vivo unveiled the Vivo V5 in India at the price of Rs 17,890. Similar to the V5, the X9 and X9 Plus are also made for selfie lovers since both of them equip a massive 20-megapixel front shooter.


Moving on, the Vivo X9 sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 pixels Full HD resolution and 401 PPI pixel density. The Snapdragon 625 octa-core (eight cores) processor which is clocked at 2GHz does power this phone. Under the hood, there is 4GB of RAM for all your multitasking needs. It comes in two memory options — 64GB and 128GB. However, the internal storage is not expandable further by any means. It packs in a 3050mAh battery with fast charging.

The Vivo X9 Plus, on another hand, comes with a slightly bigger 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED screen. Powering this phone is a 1.9GHz octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor paired with 6GB RAM. Memory options in the X9 Plus remain same as its X9 counterpart. However, it packs in a bigger 40000mAh battery with support for fast charging.

Both the phones are Dual-SIM, running Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Funtouch OS 3.0. They house a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus). In addition, there is also a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button. At last, connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

The Vivo X9 is available on pre-order in China starting today, costing 2798 Yuan (Rs 27,700) and 2998 Yuan (Rs 29,700) for 64GB and 128GB variants respectively. Vivo has ensured to reveal the price details of the X9 Plus on December 26th.
