Vivo X9s announced with Snapdragon 652 SoC, 4 GB RAM and dual front cameras

As expected, Chinese manufacturer Vivo has announced its Vivo X9s smartphone. The Vivo X9s is successor to the Vivo X9 that was announced last year, and, like its predecessor, carries a dual camera setup on the front.


The Vivo X9s is powered by Snapdragon 652 SoC which is laced with 4 GB RAM and backed by Adreno 510 GPU. It sports a 5.5-inch Full-HD Super AMOLED display which is kept on by a 3320 mAh battery. The phone is 6.99 mm thin, weighs 155 grams and boasts a uni-body construction.

The Vivo X9s runs on Funtouch OS 3.0 out of the box which is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The highlight of the X9s though is its dual camera setup on the front. It comes with a 20 MP and 5 MP camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture and flash so that you can take brighter selfies in low light. And of course, there’s a camera at the back as well. For regular shots, you have a 16 MP camera at the back which too comes with f/2.0 aperture.
