Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo is on the verge of launching two new handsets in its homeland. The company recently sent out press invites to an event scheduled for July 6 where it is expected to unveil the Vivo X9s and alongside its high-end counterpart, the Vivo X9s Plus. However, the OEM has reportedly jumped the gun and released the official press renders of the the Vivo X9s Plus, revealing external details as to how the device could look like.
According to official press renders, the phone will boast of a dual front-facing camera, something Vivo has experimented previously with its predecessors X9/X9 Plus in China and V5 Plus in India. That aside, Vivo is likely to place the fingerprint scanner on the front and retain the same old design principles. If the press renders are to believe, the X9s Plus will arrive in multiple colour variants such as Gold, Pink, and Black.
Recently, a new Vivo phone–allegedly the Vivo X9s Plus–was found listed on a certification website TENAA, revealing some key specifications. According to the listing, it flaunts a 5.8-inch display featuring 1080p Full HD resolution and 4GB of RAM. It is powered by an unknown octa-core processor ticking at 1.9GHz. However, reports indicate that Vivo X9s will be powered by a Snapdragon 652 SoC whereas the X9s Plus will sport a Snapdragon 653 SoC.
Both these phones will likely feature a dual front-facing camera unit for selfies and run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. Interestingly, the set of specifications being reported online and listed on TENAA have many commonalities i.e. both the phones are expected to arrive with 64GB of expandable storage. Both Vivo X9s and X9s Plus are up for pre-orders on an e-commerce website in China and will be available to grab starting July 8.
