Vivo: Renders of the Vivo X9 and X9 Plus show dual-front camera
A few months ago, Vivo released the X7 and the X7 Plus smartphones but the Chinese company is not stopping there. On November 17th Vivo is expected to release another pair of midrange smartphones, specifically targeted at the selfie snapping generation. Both models will prominently feature a dual-lens camera on the front of the device. According to rumors, one of the two lenses will offer 20 megapixel resolution while the other one will record 8 megapixels. At the back of the phones, Vivo will integrate a dual-pixel capable Sony Exmor IMX 260 sensor, that is also being used in the Samsung Galaxy S7 for instance.
Both the X9 and the X9 Plus are likely to be solid midrange phones. Allegedly, Vivo decided to implement the newly released Snapdragon 653 processor in both phones, together with 4 or even 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of on board storage. We can see from the leaked renders, that Vivo kept the headphone jack and that there will be a USB-C port at the bottom of the phones. While the X9 will most likely feature a 5.5 inch display with Full-HD resolution, the Plus model will have a bigger screen and battery.
