  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 chipset, Octa-core (4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A72 & 4x1.2 GHz Cortex A53) processor, Adreno 510 graphics and 4GB RAM
  • 16MP primary camera with phase detection autofocus and LED flash
  • Dual 20MP+5MP secondary camera with LED flash
  • 64GB internal storage with no microSD expansion slot
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3320 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
  • Funtouch OS 3.1 based Android Nougat 7.1
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • July 2017 expected release date
  • $2,698 Chinese Yuan or ~$399 USD estimated price tag

Under the hood of the X9s will be the mid-range Snapdragon 652 chipset with a decently fast octa-core processor, good graphics and a cool 4GB RAM. This combination is more than enough to power through most apps and games that you throw at it. Definitely fast enough for your daily use.

Even though Vivo is focusing on giving you a great selfie experience, don’t forget that the X9s will still be equipped with a 16MP primary camera with all the bells and whistles. Then only comes the highlight of the show which is the dual 20MP+5MP selfie camera with LED flash. No matter morning or night, all your selfies are set to look great. Go on ahead to experiment with the bokeh effect which really is amazing.

By taking lots of pictures, a word of caution though. This is because the X9s does not have an expansion slot, so you have to make do with its 64GB internal storage. Even though it is large enough for you to install your favorite apps and games, but when it comes to storing tons of photos that you will be taking with its camera; it will get full in no time at all. Therefore, you will have to do lots of housekeeping every now and then to clear up some stuff.

With a 3320 mAh battery supplying juice to the X9s, it should be more than enough to power up the smartphone for at least a full day in between charging.

Finally, it will be running on Funtouch OS 3.1 that is based on the latest Android Nougat 7.1 once it is released. This means that it gets to experience all the new features and functions that come with the latest operating system. It can only mean good things for this device.

Vivo X9s is expected to be released later in Q3 2017 with an estimated price of $2,698 Chinese Yuan or ~$399 USD. You can choose from Gold, Rose Gold or Black color.
