Dual Selfie Camera Vivo X9 Gets a Matte Black Color Variant in China

Vivo X9

If you love taking selfies, the Vivo X9 smartphone should definitely be high up on your list of phones to look at.

The phone’s dual-selfie camera of 20MP+8MP is a major highlight and in fact, this is a feature you will struggle finding on any high-end phone in the current setup. Up until now, this selfie expert has only been available in two color variants of gold and rose gold, but the tech giant has just unveiled a third and interesting matte black color variant – a color that many Vivo X9 fans will definitely love to be associated with.

The Vivo X9 is priced at CNY 2,798, which is approximately $410. While the price might seem a little difficult to justify, especially when the likes of OnePlus 3T and Xiaomi Mi 5S are in the market, the level that Vivo has taken photography of the X9 can hardly be matched by any of these two flagships. With the addition of a matte black color variant, it only gets better for the company.


As noted, the phone has a dual-lens 20MP+8MP lens on the front. The 20MP lens is a Sony IMX376 sensor that works as the main shooter. As for the 8MP lens, it takes care of color depth so as to ensure that great selfies are always the result. On the back of the phone is another decent shooter with a 16MP lens, PDAF, and f/2.0 aperture, promising to deliver even better photos from the rear end.

The rest of the specs of the Vivo X9 include a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a Full HD resolution, a Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at a speed of 2.2GHz and paired with a RAM of 4GB. There’s internal storage of 64GB, a 3080mAh battery unit, a fingerprint scanner and Android Marshmallow out of the box.

The new matte black color variant should be priced similar to the gold and rose gold variants.
