Vivo, one of the Chinese companies that stands out today, has just introduced two new devices in China. Both the Vivo X9s and the Vivo X9s Plus are two mid-to-long phones with good looks on paper.
BBK Electronics is an impressive business conglomerate. They have OnePlus, Vivo and Oppo among others, and have managed to be the second manufacturer that most smartphones have sold in early 2017. They have advanced Apple and are on the lookout for Samsung in the figures, something that is not mucus Turkey.
Vivo is one of the companies that is under the power of BBK Electronics, which contributed most to the achievement of that second position. It may not ring your name at first glance, but it’s all about a giant in your home country, China. And there have today introduced two new devices with good specifications on paper.
I live Vivo X9s and Vivo X9s Plus, datasheet and specifications
- 5.5 inch screen (5.85 inches in Plus) Full HD resolution
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor (Snapdragon 653 in Plus)
- 4 GB of RAM
- 64 GB internal memory
- 16 Mpx rear camera
- 20 + 5 Mpx Dual Front Camera
- Battery of 3.320 mAh (4.015 mAh in the Plus)
- Android 7.1 Nougat
- 4G with voice support over LTE and dual SIM
- Colors gold, black and pink
As you can see in the list of specifications, what stands out most in the set is the double front camera. We find a curious combination, because one of the sensors is 20 megapixels and the other is 5. It is not specified how you will take advantage of both lenses to get better pictures, although we could expect functions such as wide angle or better performance at night.
The rest of specifications are quite common in the field between mid-range and high-end. Powerful processors that do not end up being beasts, enough memory, a good amount of battery and the latest available version of Android. The rear camera is just a sensor, we did not find a double lens as in the front camera.
The price accompanies these mid-range devices in any case. While the Vivo X9s will cost about 403 dollars with the current change, the Vivo X9s Plus stands at 448 dollars. They have not commented on availability details outside of China, so we will have to settle for import right now.
