It’s a high-resolution 24 MP camera on the front end, hence, it takes crispier selfies.
It’s worth mentioning that the Vivo is backed with its beauty features which also works for its rear camera, the Portraits mode is available for both the cameras (front and the back). Moreover, the AI features, AR Stickers, and Lighting Effects wholes-up its camera features.

Vivo V9 Camera Features Explained [Quick Camera Overview]
We didn’t find any dedicated flash which was supposed to be present since the Vivo V5 Plus with dual selfie cameras had it. The AI-powered cameras click bokeh style shots, detects the face of the person, determine the age, sex and skin tones, and apply the bokeh effects with a better edge detection. Only that, the front camera can’t adjust the depth like the dual cameras. The shots taken with rear cameras have the ability to adjust the focus and depth after taking pictures.
The AR Stickers comes with loads of cool stickers, however, you need to download separately. Thanks to AI, the images look great with AR Stickers. The AR Stickers add effects in real-time just as you have seen on the Instagram and Snapchat. The Lightning effects are similar to what you might have seen on iPhone X, it adds different lighting modes like adding light on the face, or removing the colors in the background without losing the colors of the face.
The 24 MP selfie camera is impressive, delivers sharp and crisp images, when in good lighting conditions whereas the dual-camera takes decent shots as far as the lights exist.
