Chinese phone maker Vivo launched V9 last month, and now the company has silently launched V9 Youth, a cheaper version of the smartphone. The V9 Youth is priced Rs 18,990 and will be available from offline retailers across the country. Similar to the V9, the V9 Youth features a Full View display with pretty thin side bezels and almost 90% screen-to-body ratio. It sports the same 6.3-inch FHD+ (1080×2280 pixels) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top.

The 2.5D curved glass display on the front also has a 19:9 aspect ratio and a screen notch. Though similar to iPhone X, the notch on V9 Youth is much shorter and houses the selfie camera and a speaker.

Under the hood, the Vivo V9 Youth is powered by a 1.8GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 450 14nm processor with Adreno 506 GPU. It has 4 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage with an option to expand storage up to 256GB. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have 6GB RAM option and also there’s no information on a higher storage variant.

As for optics, the V9 Youth has a dual camera system on the rear. A 16MP primary sensor with LED flash and a secondary 2MP sensor combine to form the dual camera module. The device also has a 16MP front camera with soft LED flash. The cameras support bokeh mode, AI Face Detection, beauty mode, 4K video recording and high dynamic range (HDR) imaging as well.

Connectivity options of the phone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS + GLONASS. The phone has a built-in fingerprint sensor on the rear for security purposes. Fuelled by a 3260mAh battery, the Vivo V9 Youth runs Funtouch OS 4.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. It is a dual sim device with dual standby support.

Vivo V9 Youth is priced at Rs. 18,990 (Rs. 19,990 MRP) and is available from offline retailers across the country. The smartphone comes in Pearl Black and Champagne Gold colour options.
