The phone follows the footsteps of Apple flaghship Iphone X. It has ‘near bezel-less display’ and almost edge to edge design. It incorporates in its design ‘The Notch’.  The Notch design is being picked up by quite a handful of smartphone manufacturers like Huawei, Xiaomi, One Plus.


The desgin is almsot identical to Iphone X. Edge to Edge display and near bezel less display are the key features in design.

The similarity extends with the Software too. Although the V9 is an Android smartphone running the latest Oreo 8.1 version, but with Vivo’s custom Funtouch 4.0 OS layered on top, everything from icons to interface looks inspired from Apple’s iOS.


The Vivo V9 offers a big 6.3-inch display with a tall 19:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution. With the ‘near’ bezel-less display, Vivo has managed to keep the screen to body ratio at a staggering 90%.

The feature highlight of the phone is the camera. The 24MP front camera is now AI-powered. Vivo claims its AI face beauty mode is trained using a comprehensive database of million face images which allows detecting the age, sex, skin texture and skin tone of the subject and lighting environment.

The back houses a 16MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera for depth sensing (bokeh effect). There’s an LED flash on the back. One cool feature I liked about the back camera is you can even shoot first and focus late
