After launching the Vivo V9 smartphone in India, the Chinese company had introduced Vivo V9 Youth as a toned-down variant of the V9 at a lower price point. Now, the phone’s pricing is further lowered by Rs. 1,000 and is now available at a price of Rs. 17,990.
However, it is not yet known if the price drop is limited to the offline retailers only as the online listing of the Vivo V9 Youth still reflects old price tag of Rs. 18,990.
The Vivo V9 Youth comes with a 6.3-inch IPS LCD Full View 2.0 display with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ screen resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch on top. It is powered by Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz.
The device packs 4GB RAM along with 32GB of internal storage. Further expansion is possible using a microSD card that can accept up to 256GB. There’s a fingerprint sensor on the back and the phone also supports Face Unlock.
The V9 Youth sports a dual camera setup at the back, featuring a 16MP sensor placed alongside a vertically stacked 2MP sensor and an LED flash. These features include AR stickers, Bokeh mode for DSLR-like effect, and an AI Face Beauty mode. On the front, it has a 16MP selfie camera situated inside the front notch, along with a soft LED flash.
