Vivo, nearly a month after the launch of their mid-tier flagship, the Vivo V9, has expanded the V series with the V9 Youth. Similar to its pricier version, the new Vivo V9 Youth comes with a 6.3-inch FullView display with a notch that is reminiscent of the iPhone X. Within a month of its global release, Vivo Nepal has released the latest midrange phone in an event held today at City Center, Kamalpokhari.
Vivo V9 Youth Overview
The Vivo V9 Youth offers the same 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD panel with a 1080x2280p resolution with a pixel density of 400ppi. The phone comes with a tall FullView 2.0 Display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch. When it comes to design, the Vivo V9 Youth looks almost the same as the Vivo V9. That being said, the device itself looks captivating with an 85.2% screen-to-body ratio. The phone weighs just 150g which is the sweet spot for a phone.
On the optics, the phone houses a 16MP+2MP dual rear camera instead of 16MP+5MP on the Vivo V9. Note that there’s no 4K video recording! The selfie camera is a new 16MP snapper instead of the 24MP of the V9. The key highlight of the smartphone is a 16-megapixel selfie camera with AI integration and dual cameras at the back. It is also equipped with facial recognition technology.
Under the hood, the V9 packs a 1.8 GHz Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor along with the Adreno 506 GPU. The processor is backed by 4GB of RAM for smooth multi-tasking. Onboard the Vivo V9 Youth is 32GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card up to 256GB. The phone also supports dual-sim cards and is 4G compatible.
Running FunTouch OS 4.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo, the smartphone is backed by a 3260mAh battery. This without a doubt will be enough to get users through a day of usage on a single charge. The 3.5mm headphone jack is still present on the V9 Youth but it lacks the Type-C USB port.
Vivo V9 Youth Price in Nepal
The Vivo V9 seems to be a great smartphone targeted towards selfie lovers, at least on paper. The near bezel-less display and the presence of an iPhone X style notch is another key strength of the phone. The phone is available in two color variants namely Champagne Gold and Pearl Black. The phone is priced at Rs. 29,390/- for the 4GB+32GB variant. What are your thoughts on the phone? Let us know in the comment section down below.
