vivo V9 Youth launched in India – toned down V9 for INR 18,990

Vivo is treating Indian fans of its V9 to a cheaper sidekick with the same level of charm but a lower price tag. The vivo V9 Youth shares much of what makes the V9 proper good but reduces its INR 22,990 (~ €280) price tag to INR 18,990 (~ €230).

The vivo V9 Youth uses a Snapdragon 450 in place of the Snapdragon 626 in the V9 and has a 16MP+2MP dual camera in place of its 16MP+5MP – note that there’s no 4K video recording. The selfie camera is a new 16MP snapper instead of the 24MP of the V9. It still does Face unlock to save you the trouble of reaching for the back-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Otherwise the vivo V9 Youth offers the same 6.3-inch 1080x2280px IPS LCD with a tall-aspect 19:9 ratio and a notch to house the front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM and a 3,260mAh battery.

Software-wise the V9 Youth runs Android 8.1 Oreo under Funtouch OS 4.0.
