vivo can’t help itself, lists the V9 early in India revealing all of its specs

vivo’s upcoming V9 has been the star of a few leaks so far, the biggest of which came yesterday. Now vivo itself apparently wants in on the leaking game, since it’s managed to list the V9 on its website for India, complete with new press renders (though rather low-resolution) and a full list of specs.

The V9 is apparently powered by the Snapdragon 626 chipset, paired with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage (and there’s a triple slot inside so you can even use two SIMs and a microSD card all at once). It’s also got a 19:9 6.3″ notched IPS touchscreen with 2,280×1,080 resolution. These details contradict yesterday’s leak, but since they come straight from vivo’s website it’s pretty clear which you ought to believe. Plus, this screen resolution makes much more sense compared to the 2,160×1,080 talked about yesterday, given the presence of the notch.

The V9 has a 16 MP + 5 MP dual rear camera setup and a 24 MP selfie snapper (all with f/2.0 aperture), the latter with AI Face Beauty, gender detection, AR stickers, Face Beauty Video, filters, and HDR support. The rear shooter gets features such as slow-motion, AI Face Beauty, time-lapse mode, Live Photo, portrait bokeh mode, shot refocusing, UHD video capture, Pro Mode, AR stickers, Smart Motion, Palm Capture, gender detection, panorama mode, and filters.

The device will run Funtouch OS 4.0, based on Android 8.1 Oreo, and it will have a 3,260 mAh battery. Its dimensions aare 154.81 x 75.03 x 7.89mm, and it weighs 150g. It’s got a metal unibody construction and will be offered in black and gold.

The vivo V9 is expected to get officially unveiled in India very soon, with the date reportedly having been moved to March 23 from March 27. Pricing is unknown yet, as the listing on vivo’s website has a funny placeholder of INR 10,000,000 at the moment (that would be $154,100 or 124,591 at the current exchange rates).
