VIVO had introduced the world to dual-selfie cameras with its X-series smartphones and now the company wants to keep the halo. The X-series smartphones currently comprise of the X9 and X9 Plus and the company is planning to release another model in the line, the X9S Plus. Apart from featuring stellar selfie cameras, the X-series devices focus on providing a premium feel to their devices in the mid-range category with beveled edges and a metal chassis.
The X9S Plus was recently reported to have completed its Radio frequency certification in China which implies its imminent release. From the leaked information that was captured by ITHome.com, it seems the device will be the first to be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 660 series octa-core SoC coupled with an Adreno 512 GPU. With the improved SoC comes support for dual-channel LPDDR4X memory, UFS 2.1 storage, and an X10 LTE modem. The upcoming smartphone is also expected to come with a dual-selfie camera up-front which will make it one of the few devices on the market with dual-camera modules on the front and back.
This puts the X9S Plus in a unique position much like the recently launched Gionee M6S Plus which although not much different from its predecessors carries better ancillary features to differentiate itself. Also, please note that this is not the first time a device has been rumoured to have been packing Snapdragon’s latest mid-range performance SoC inside with the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 also allegedly having been powered by the same before it was discovered to be featuring the Snapdragon 626 SoC. We would be following developments on this story and reporting of any confirmations as soon as they are available.
