Vivo V9 Youth Coming Soon?

The Vivo V9 has taken away accolades thanks to its camera prowess. A recent leak lists a variant of the said smartphone with the Moniker Vivo V9 Youth. From what’s listed the V9 Youth Edition will be a toned down version of the V9, aimed at the mid-range market. No pictures are reported, but it should sport a design similar to the V9, with changes only in the internals.

According to the list, the Vivo V9 Youth will sport a FullView 2.0 6.3-inch FHD display that has a 2280 x 1080p resolution with 403 pixels per inch ad Gorilla Glass 3 on top which is identical to the V9. The dimensions are same as the V9, so don’t expect a lot of variation in the design. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 clocked at 1.8GHz as compared to the V9‘s Snapdragon 626. On the memory front, it will sport 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, expandable up to 256GB. Another difference is the camera configuration. The V9 Youth will have a dual camera setup of a 16MP and 2MP sensors on the back while a 16MP camera will sit on the front. Other than that, the V9 Youth will be no different than the V9.

Vivo has not talked about another variant of the V9, so we suggest you take this news with a pinch of salt.

    I think it is really stupid to call a scaled-down phone a “youth” edition. It may be that lots of people want a mid-ranger and don’t need a full-blast power device. To say it is for youth is a bit patrononising but it also rules out others who may like the phone but wouldn’t want to be lumped in with “youth”.

      Exactly, I the the word lite would be much better.
