We’ve been praising China-based smartphone manufacturer Vivo of late for breaking new ground in both biometric recognition and borderless designs, but just like the bulk of its domestic rivals, it seems the BBK-owned brand is also looking to follow Apple’s suit.
At least one of the company’s impending mobile devices is pretty much guaranteed to adopt an iPhone X-style notch, specifically the Vivo V9 that’s apparently coming to India on March 27.
We already have a good idea of how the new “full screen” handset will look, offering a “perfect view”, as well as the “perfect” (frontal) shot, thanks to a 24MP selfie camera. Compared to the V7, the V9 will naturally be pricier, at around 25,000 rupees ($385), also boasting trendy dual rear-facing shooters.
Hopefully, the otherwise mysterious phone will pack a significantly speedier processor than the Snapdragon 450, but if it doesn’t, you can definitely count on the Vivo X21 to provide higher-end specifications.
Unfortunately, that, and the fact the X21 is expected out in China on March 19, are the only details we have at the moment. No idea if a razor-thin top bezel will be retained or if the notch is supposed to get further support, and nothing on the rest of the specifications. At least not yet.
