Vivo had managed to surprise quite a few people this year. This China-based company is currently the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in China (as far as shipments go), at least it was based on some recently-released information for the Q2 2016. Vivo had managed to ship quite a few smartphones in China, and even though it’s still trailing behind Huawei and OPPO, the company surely had a great year thus far. Vivo is the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in China, and a 5th largest in the world, at least according to IDC’s latest info, as the company had managed to double their shipments in Q3 2016, compared to the same period last year.
Having that in mind, Vivo is planning to introduce some new hardware soon, and they’ve released a new teaser via social media. The Vivo X9 and Vivo X9 Plus are expected to launch on November 17th in China, and Vivo has just confirmed that the two devices will ship a dual camera setup, as you can see in the provided images. The Vivo X7 and Vivo X7 Plus were introduced back in June, and their successors are already knocking at our door. The company did not only confirm that the two devices will ship with dual camera sensors, but they’ve also said that we can expect to see 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel camera sensors on the front side of these two devices, so we're getting a dual camera selfie setup here, which is quite odd. Chances are that these two phones will also sport an LED flash on both sides.
Anyhow, the Vivo X9 and Vivo X9 Plus will be made out of metal, and chances are the two devices will sport a physical home button below the display. We expected these two devices to ship with a 5.5-inch and a 6-inch fullHD display, respectively, while you can expect to see 4GB of RAM included in the Vivo X9, and 6GB of RAM in the Vivo X9 Plus. The two device will probably ship with the Snapdragon 653 processor, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed here with Vivo’s custom UI on top of Google’s OS.
