Vivo V9 expected to sport iPhone X-Like design

Chinese smartphone maker Vivo recently showcased its concept phone at the Mobile World Congress 2018, in Barcelona, Spain. Now, the company has posted a teaser on Weibo, which hints that the manufacturer is working on its next flagship smartphone V9.

The Vivo V9 was recently spotted on billboards in Indonesia and is considered to be the successor of the Vivo V7 smartphone. It is also expected that the Vivo V9 is also said to sport an iPhone X-Like design. The smartphone is expected to come with a screen notch and an enhanced front camera.

The Vivo V9 is expected to come with edge-to-edge display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The front of the device is said to house a 24MP front camera for selfies. The rear of the device is also expected to sport a dual rear camera setup.
According to a report by GizmoChina, the Vivo V9 is said to come with a higher price tag and it will not sport the in-display fingerprint sensor which the company showcased at CES 2018. It is also expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor.

Last month, Vivo showcased “FullView” concept smartphone named APEX at MWC 2018. It is said to be that the smartphone has the world’s highest screen-to-body ratio and half-screen in-display fingerprint scanning technology.

“We are committed to bringing in technology and innovation in every new product that comes out of our stable and APEX is not an exception. The futuristic design innovations in APEX are only a fraction of our innovation pipeline,” Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo, said in a statement.

Vivo APEX features top and side bezels of 1.8-mm — the thinnest in the industry and a 4.3-mm bottom bezel and a screen-to-body ratio exceeding 98 per cent.
