After the successful launch of the flagship V9 smartphone, the Chinese company Vivo, unveiled two new smartphones, namely the V9 Youth and the entry-level Y71 in a media launch event at the Faletti’s Hotel in Lahore.
V9 Youth offers a similar design as to the V9 and packs high performing hardware at a price that’s more affordable for masses. The new phone looks aesthetically pleasing from every angle, with subtle accents of champagne-gold around the camera and fingerprint pad. This blend of colors creates a trendy look with a touch of sophistication.
Zohair Chohan, Brand Manager Vivo Pakistan, says,
“With the launch of Vivo V9 Youth, we are bringing the best features of our flagship V9 in a new avatar for our young and modern consumers, this device is for consumers who want a holistic and powerful smartphone experience at a competitive price.”
The V9 Youth has a state-of-the-art 19:9 aspect ratio FullView Display 2.0, with an amazing screen-to-body ratio of 90%. The super-sized 6.3-inch display fits perfectly in a compact body no larger than a traditional 5.5-inch phone, offering an incredibly immersive experience for watching videos and gaming.
The 90% screen-to-body ratio and 1.75mm thin bezels, make this phone stand out of the clutter while delivering the best viewing experience. The V9 Youth features two rear cameras, a main 16MP camera for extraordinary clarity and a 2MP secondary camera that captures depth-of-field. These are further supported by an AI Dual Rear Camera algorithm which has been optimized based on machine learning using a large database of images. It can achieve amazing bokeh shots to rival even the results of professional DSLR cameras.
With every photograph, the AI algorithm creates a 3D model to disperse the light authentically and artistically. Choose from a range of light effects to create model-style pictures. Get ready to transform any environment into your own professional photo studio.
AI Face Beauty is smart mobile photography at its best.

It can also learn your customized setting preferences and apply these settings automatically each time you take a photo.
