Vivo is the latest company to copy the iPhone X design, in its latest high-end V9 phone. It has a 90% screen-to-body ratio, with a notch at the top.
Design and Display
The display at the front is a 6.3” IPS LCD, with an unconventional 19:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD+ (1080 x 2280) resolution.
As mentioned earlier, it looks like the iPhone X, albeit with a smaller notch and colored accents on the cameras and the sides of the phone.
Internals and Storage
Powering the phone is Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 626 processor, with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB expandable storage.
Running the phone is Android 8.1 Oreo, which features Vivo’s Funtouch OS on top of it.
At the back is a dual-camera setup, with a 16 MP shooter plus a 5 MP shooter, likely to create the bokeh effect. It is accompanied by a dual LED Flash and a fingerprint rounding things off at the back. It also comes with AI beautifying features.
The front instead comes with a 24 MP shooter, with support for Face Unlock. It can also sense when the user is not looking at the phone and provides iOS like portrait mode features.
The battery capacity of the phone is set at 3260 mAh, with no word on fast charging or wireless charging.
Pricing and retail availability hasn’t been revealed yet.
