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.
