Vivo is preparing to release two new smartphones: Vivo X9S and Vivo X9S Plus. Under forecasts, both should debut for a week – on July, 6th. But the manufacturer was not able to keep information about the upcoming news in full secret. At least, we already know the first of them, and the second model will differ from it only in some details.
Let’s start with the design, although nothing surprises us here. For the Vivo X9S looks the same as the Vivo X9 and also very much resembles the iPhone 7 – both front and rear. The only slight difference is the oval Home button with the built-in fingerprint scanner, two lenses on the front, and the manufacturer’s logo on the back of the smartphone.
If it is a specification, then it will pleasantly surprise you. Vivo X9S is a very good offer from the middle shelf. The smartphone – which is confirmed by two tests – is equipped with a 5.5-inch display with Full HD resolution (1080 × 1920, 401 ppi), 8-core (8 x Kryo 260, 14-nm) Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with Adreno 512 graphics chip, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory and 16 megapixel main camera with the ability to record video in 4K format. Unfortunately, the smartphone does not have NFC.
GFXBench indicates that the Vivo X9S is equipped with a 5 megapixel front camera, but it’s just not possible. Since the Vivo X9 is equipped with a dual front camera: 20 Mp + 8 Mp. And most likely, this is the duet will receive a new model.
Vivo X9S runs under the operating system Android 7.1.1 Nougat. But this system will be covered by the author’s Vivo interface called Funtouch OS. In this case, we will deal with its latest, recently launched version, with the designation 3.1.
As I mentioned, the Vivo X9S Plus should not be very different from the Vivo X9S. Most likely, only the diagonal of the display (closer to 6 inches, but with a resolution of Full HD) and the capacity of the battery. The smartphone is likely to get 6 GB of RAM. The device was certified TENAA some time ago, but it was removed from the database. Why? I have no idea.
Premiere Vivo X9S and Vivo X9S Plus, as you already know, will be held on July 6. The price of the smartphone is not yet known.
