Vivo has launched yet another smartphone in China, the Vivo Y9s. The smartphone comes with a 48-megapixel quad-camera setup at the back, a 32-megapixel selfie cam up front and it is powered by the Snapdragon 665 processor. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest mid-range smartphone from Vivo.
Vivo has also announced to launch a smartphone in India on December 9, 2019, which is expected to be the Vivo V17. However, the teaser for the phone suggests that the upcoming device will have a punch-hole display and not a waterdrop notch. So, it’s possible that Vivo is not only rebranding the V17 in India but also redesigning it as well.
The Vivo Y9s has been priced at Yuan 1,998 in China that converts to around Rs 20,000 for the lone model of 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The phone is available in three color variants in the country– Glazed Black, Nebula Blue, and Symphony of Light. The device will go on sale starting December 6, 2019.

Vivo has provided a 4,500mAh battery on the Y9s that supports 18W Dual Engine fast charging technology. Besides, the phone measures 159.25×75.19×8.68mm and weighs 186.7 grams.
