The notch on top of the front display screen first seen on the iPhone X appears to have become the norm and many other models have adopted it. The latest to report a similar feature is the next flagship from Vivo, the Vivo V9 slated for an exclusive Amazon launch in India on March 23. The phone is already appearing on Amazon’s site and is open for pre booking by the buyers and luckily, one doesn’t have to speculate about the specs and features of the phone. The company had carried most of these on its website itself earlier.

The Vivo V9 will have a large 6.3-inch edge to edge, full HD+ display and it will have an aspect ratio of 19:9 and as mentioned, the notch to accommodate the selfie camera. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core SoC will be the processor on the new Vivo phone. The phone comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The Android Oreo, version 8.0 will be the processor and Vivo’s FunTouch OS 4.0 will be the UI skin on top.

There is some similarity in the camera setup style between the Vivo V9 and the iPhone X as well. Vertically stacked in the rear are the dual 12MP+5MP cameras and the front selfie camera is a much larger 24MP, in line with Vivo’s positioning its phones as selfie specialist smartphones. A 3260mAh battery rounds off the hardware specs on the new phone. There is also a mention of an AI camera giving a hint that the user can expect AI to play a key role in the technology behind the operation of the cameras as well.

The expected price of the Vivo V9 is Rs 24,000 and Amazon may include some offers to signify the launch of the device.

Vivo has also appointed a new brand ambassador for the Indian market, with actor Aamir Khan replacing Ranveer Singh, another actor.
