FullView Display for Unlimited Fun

The V9 is as compact in design as a traditional 5.5-inch phone but offers an incredible 6.3-inch display, while still feeling comfortable in your hand. The V9 adopts a 19:9 aspect ratio to increase screen size by 5.2% compared to the previous generation's V+, and the side bezels have been reduced by 19% to a mere 1.75mm. Taking phone design to the extraordinary, every arc and curve on the ergonomically optimized 3D curved cover is carefully polished to ensure absolute comfort in the palm of your hand.

Creating the perfect Shot with AI Photography

New AI-powered camera functions continue Vivo's ambitions to provide smart mobile photography with the V9's crystal-clear 24MP front camera and 16MP + 5MP dual rear camera setup. Based on in-depth research, powerful software, and machine learning, Vivo uses AI to help consumers pursue a great photo that truly represents their beauty.

AI Face Beauty identifies user's age, sex, skin tone and texture, as well as the surrounding lighting environment. A comprehensive database of almost one million facial images from around the world has been used to train the AI algorithm. This allows the AI Face Beauty to adapt and apply  the ideal algorithm for optimized photos. As usage increases, the AI will also learn your customized setting preferences, automatically creating the ideal photo every time and exactly the way you want.

The new AI Selfie Lighting also allows users to create artistic photo masterpieces anytime anywhere without an elaborate equipment setup. The V9's AI algorithm transforms the facial profile in the original 2D photo into a 3D model to process the light accents authentically. Users can choose from a range of effects like Natural Light, Studio Light, Stereo Light, and Monochrome Background. When coupled with AR Stickers that provides numerous effects to decorate your selfie, the V9 helps users to take selfies that reflect their unique style with just a few clicks.

The rear facing 16MP + 5MP dual rear camera of the V9 creates amazing bokeh shots that rival those taken on a DSLR camera using its AI Bokeh algorithm. The AI Bokeh has been optimized based on machine learning, so it can achieve high-level precision in identifying the key subject to ensure optimal focus in the photo.

AI-Optimized Mobile Experience

The V9's AI also ensures the best mobile performance and endurance with Vivo's AI Smart Engine. By learning your usage habits and preferences, the AI  Smart Engine prioritizes processing and storage resources for an optimized experience. Not only does it ensure smooth operation and save power, as the AI picks up on your usage habits, Smart Engine can accurately predict your next move and have your favorite app launch 20% faster. 

With its updated AI Face Access technology, the V9 can detect the reflection of natural skin and the subtle movements of the face to further reduce the possibility of accidentally unlocking when shown photos or videos. AI Face Access for App-lock helps secure your data and privacy for individual applications.

The V9's AI Attention Sensing also recognizes when you're looking at the phone to keep disruption to a minimum by automatically reducing the volume of message alerts, incoming calls and alarms, since you're already looking at the screen.

Entertainment and Power

Updated Game Mode delivers the hyper-focused environment required for the most dedicated gamers with the ability to block all messages, calls and alerts while gaming. Alternately, you can set it up to display phone calls from designated contacts only. The new picture-in-picture for games feature means you won't even have to exit the game to reply to critical messages.
