Just five months on, and the V9 looks to be a perfect candidate to replace its predecessor. Starting with the obvious increase in size, the 6.3-inch Full HD IPS screen is not only large, but also comes with a Full HD resolution, higher 19:9 ratio and a metal body to boot.

Under the hood of the V9 will then be the much better Snapdragon 626 chipset, a faster octa-core processor, similar Adreno 506 graphics and 4GB RAM.

A huge improvement on the primary camera, where it is now equipped with a dual 16MP+5MP camera setup and is supported by an AI Bokeh algorithm. This algorithm has been optimized based on machine learning of large amounts of data, so it can achieve fantastic bokeh shots that rival DSLR camera results. You can even shoot first and focus later, turning it into a masterpiece. Then there’s the 24MP selfie camera that can turn your every selfie into a work of art. Experience more exceptional brightness, colour vibrancy, clarity and dynamic range, even in the dimmest light. Turn your selfies into masterpieces and shine in every photo.

Storage-wise, the V9 has now doubled to 64GB of internal storage space. Very good to complement the improved camera, since we all know that you will be taking lots of amount of shots with it.

Finally, the latest Android Oreo 8.1 is available right out of the box. This ensures you get the best software experience to smoothen everything out.
