The dual-SIM smartphone will run the FunTouch OS 4.0 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. The teasers have revealed an edge-to-edge display, with a 6.3-inch full HD+ IPS display, with resolution of 1080x2280 pixels.
The new Vivo V9 is scheduled to be launched in the Indian market on March 23. This is earlier that was previously expected, with reports around a possible March 26 date. That day is still big, since that’s when Oppo F7 is being launched.
Vivo has released some specifications of the V9 on its Indian website, ahead of the launch. This has only added to the excitement and interest around the product.
