Vivo X9 and X9 Plus to come with 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel dual front cameras


The launch of Vivo’s latest flagship devices, the Vivo X9 and the X9 Plus, is just round the corner. And because of its impending launch, we’ve been getting to know more and more bits and pieces of information regarding these phones’ specifications. Just yesterday, we got to know that both these devices would be getting dual cameras. We came to know this through the company’s post on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, wherein it posted a picture that confirmed a phone with a dual camera setup.


Another teaser was released today giving out some more details. As per the teaser, the X9 and the X9 Plus will be getting a dual front camera of 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel. While we don’t know any more details either about the camera or the phone, we suspect that it might come with Sony Exmoor IMX 260 lenses.

If these specifications are to be believed, these new flagship devices will boast of having the highest camera specs on the front camera on any smartphone as yet.


Regardless, the rumours doing the rounds hint that the Vivo X9 might come in a full metal body. Under the hood, it is rumoured to have an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 with 4GB/6GB of RAM. There might be 64GB of internal storage space. It could come with a physical home button that has the fingerprint sensor integrated on it, and also have a USB Type-C port.

The phones come as successors to the Vivo X7 and the X7 Plus which were released in June this year. These new flagship devices are expected to be launched on November 17 at an event in Beijing, China.
