Poster leaks Vivo X9 and X9 Plus hardware specs
Whoops, it appears that someone has given the game away about the upcoming Vivo X9 and X9 Plus smartphones. A promotional poster has been spotted out in the wild revealing almost a complete rundown of the phones’ hardware specifications.
According to the poster, the Vivo X9 will come with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and is powered by an unlabeled octa-core Snapdragon processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal memory. There’s also a reasonably sized 3,050mAh battery on board, and a soft LED flash to accompany the camera.
As the name suggests, the Vivo X9 Plus will be a larger model, boasting a 5.86-inch display with the same 1080p resolution. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s 8976 Pro, aka the Snapdragon 653, and some additional RAM, bringing the total up to 6GB. There’s the same amount of internal storage as the regular X9, but the Plus model also receives an upgrade to a 4,000mAh battery. Overall, the design and hardware will be almost identical to the X7 series released earlier in the year.
The poster also reaffirms Vivo’s earlier teaser that the X9 series will come with a dual front facing camera configuration, which appears to be the range’s most notable new feature. The front facing camera will be built from one 20 megapixel and one 8 megapixel sensor, but we don’t know anything about how Vivo intends for this configuration to be used yet. We could be looking at a wide-angle option like the LG V20, or a monochrome sensor technology from the likes of Huawei. This powerful looking selfie setup is accompanied by a 16 megapixel camera on the handset’s back.
The Vivo X9 and X9 Plus are scheduled to be unveiled at a launch event in China on November 16th. What do you think about the hardware?
