Create the Perfect Shot with AI Photography

The V9 comes with a crystal-clear 24MP front camera and a 16MP+5MP dual rear camera. But the remarkable thing about shooting with the V9 is harnessing the power of AI.

AI Face Beauty identifies age, sex, skin tone and texture, as well as the surrounding lighting environment. A comprehensive database of almost one million facial images from around the world has been used to train the AI algorithm. This allows AI Face Beauty to adapt and apply the ideal algorithm for optimized photos.

Vivo V9's with AI to assist selfies

The new AI Selfie Lighting feature also allows you to create artistic photo masterpieces anytime anywhere without an elaborate equipment setup. The V9’s AI algorithm transforms the facial profile in the original 2D photo into a 3D model to process the light accents authentically. Choose from a range of effects like Natural Light, Studio Light, Stereo Light and Monochrome Background. When coupled with AR Stickers that provides numerous effects to decorate your selfie, the V9 helps you take selfies that reflect your unique style with just a few clicks.

The rear facing 16MP+5MP dual camera of the V9 creates amazing bokeh shots that rival those taken on a DSLR camera using its AI Bokeh algorithm. This has been optimized based on machine learning, so it can achieve high-level precision in identifying the key subject to ensure optimal focus in the photo.

AI-Optimized Mobile Experience

The V9’s AI also ensures the best mobile performance and endurance with Vivo’s AI Smart Engine. By learning your usage habits and preferences, the AI Smart Engine prioritizes processing and storage resources for an optimized experience. Not only does it ensure smooth operation and save power, as the AI picks up on your usage habits, Smart Engine can accurately predict your next move and have your favorite apps launch 20% faster.

With its updated AI Face Access technology, the V9 can detect the reflection of natural skin and the subtle movements of the face to further reduce the possibility of accidently unlocking when shown photos or videos. AI Face Access for App-Lock even helps secure your data and privacy for individual applications.

The V9’s AI Attention Sensing also recognizes when you’re looking at the phone to keep disruption to a minimum by automatically reducing the volume of message alerts, incoming calls and alarms, since you’re already looking at the screen.

Entertainment and Power

The updated Game Mode delivers the hyper-focused environment required for the most dedicated gamers with the ability to block all messages, calls and alerts while gaming. Alternatively, you can set it up to display phone calls from designated contacts only. The new picture-in-picture for games feature means you won’t even have to exit the game to reply to critical messages.

The V9 comes equipped with the latest Android 8.1 OS and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor, 4GB RAM and 64 ROM.
