“As of now, the Vivo V9 Pro is currently available in the country in a single 6GB RAM model”
Last month, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo expanded its range of V series smartphones in India with the launch of the V9 Pro. The phone arrived in a single variant that offers 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Now, the company is all set to release a slightly affordable model of the handset in the country. As per our retail chain sources, the vendor is planning to launch a new Vivo V9 Pro (first impressions) variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
As per our sources, the Vivo V9 Pro 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant will be priced at Rs 15,990. The smartphone will be available exclusively on Flipkart starting from November 1st. Notably, the phone’s 6GB RAM model was released in the country for Rs 19,990, but is now available for Rs 17,990. The device is exclusively available on Amazon India. It should be noted that the Vivo V9 4GB RAM variant is also available at Rs 15,990 on Flipkart, so it could see a small price cut once the V9 Pro 4GB RAM model hits the market.
Talking about the specs, the Vivo V9 Pro features a 6.3-inch full HD+ IPS display with an aspect ratio of 19:9. The handset has minimal bezels on the sides and notch above the screen, which is home to the selfie camera, the earpiece, and other sensors. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s 14nm fabrication process-based octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC. The device comes with 64GB of native storage, which can be further increased up to 256GB by inserting a microSD card. Software-wise, the handset boots Funtouch OS 4.0, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. For security, the smartphone is equipped with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
In the camera department, the Vivo V9 Pro offers a 13-megapixel primary shooter at the rear with an aperture of f/2.2, aided by a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. For selfies and video calling, the smartphone gets a 16-megapixel secondary camera on the front. The connectivity features include 4G LTE, dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and A-GPS. A 3,260mAh battery keeps the show running.
