Vivo has been making headlines in 2018 due to its unique innovation. First, we saw the company unveil the first smartphone with an embedded fingerprint scanner in the display. Then, the Vivo Apex was shown off, revealing no bezels on all four sides, along with an embedded fingerprint scanner and a pop-up camera.
Well, taking a step back a bit, Vivo has just announced a new device with the Vivo V9. The device seems to be another take on the notch, with a near-bezel-less display, save for the notch at the top.
On the spec sheet, we have a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with an aspect ratio of 19:9. Powering the Vivo V9 is the Snapdragon 626 chipset, which has been coupled with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and Android 8.1 Oreo.
The selfie camera, housed in the notch, features a 24MP sensor. Meanwhile, the rear-mounted camera system features a primary 16MP lens and a secondary 5MP sensor.
Some special features of the Vivo V9 include “AI Face Access”, which is nothing more than an upgraded version of Android’s Face Recognition. Vivo has also included Attention Sensing which monitors whether you’re looking at the display or not.
Unfortunately, Vivo stopped short of revealing pricing and availability information for this device.Which means that’ll we’ll just have to wait and see what Vivo is coming up with next.
