vivo V9 Pro arrives on September 26 as an Amazon Exclusive

Yordan, 24 September 2018

Back in June, vivo announced the V9 smartphone with 6 GB RAM for the Indonesian market. The phone received an upgrade in RAM and a faster Snapdragon 660 chipset instead of the initial Snapdragon 626 SoC in the regular vivo V9.

Now that version is finally moving away from Indonesia and will make its way to India under the name vivo V9 Pro. It will arrive on Wednesday as an Amazon Exclusive when pricing will be unveiled.

The vivo V9 6GB has the same size as its vanilla sibling, but the camera setups were quite different. The new phone was listed with 13 MP f/2.2 main snapper and a 2 MP secondary cam for depth sensing, while the selfie shooter was 12 MP. This is way less impressive than the 16 MP + 5 MP setup on the regular V9 that had a 24 MP front-facing cam.

Color availability was another difference between the two devices. Originally offered in Gold, Blue, Red and Black, the vivo 6GB only had the latter two options. The price difference between the vivo V9 and the vivo V9 6GB was about IDR700,000 or $50/€40. If we can apply the pricing scheme from Indonesia to India, the vivo V9 Pro could cost between INR23,000 and INR26,000.

V11 pro for 26k V11 for 23k V9 will be proved around 18-19k not more that

Don't always say "Chinese vendors" for everything bad. Even Apple's official images for iPhone XR show much smaller bezels than the real deal.

As mentioned if it is between 23k-26k then surely it's a flop,, considering v11 pro at 26k with good offers
