Here’s hoping for Xiaomi to compete with a cheaper SD660 phone (maybe the Mi A2).
Vivo’s pricing are getting ridiculous, all for their fancy marketing.

karooko, 29 Jun 2018Vivo v9's "chin" - 3mm
iPhone X's "chin" - 5mm
Sorry Apple fans. Your "chin" argument is n... moreafaik no chin means that the bottom bezel has the same thick with the side bezel one. If you say iPhone X @5 mm, it would be so thick that it can't being considered as a bezelless phone. I have a Redmi Note 3 and it have 2.5mm of side bezels and i think the iPhone X would be the same.
So please check your facts, not only by one source. Maybe i haven't hands this phone but i know the logic is.

But as you said Vivo never get bigger than 1/2.55". So, we can conclude new Vivo V9 6gb have inferior camera.

These phone uses even much smaller sensor than that phone, i never heard these two selfie expert (that's what they say) companies have ever used any bigger than 1/2.55" sensor, even the 1/2.55" one is kinda rare from them, they mostly used a 1/2.8" sensor in their phone.
Luxor, 29 Jun 2018Did I point out only to the 2mp camera? No. Im talking about the ENTIRE camera. All of it. Bot... morewell 24MP and 13MP isn't that much different for a small 1/3" or 1/2.8" sensor, only file size differs so you could save some free space lol

This SD660 version only has 12mp front facing camera but with dual pixel tech.
Other than that it basically has the same spesifications.
Same rear cameras

The explanation is right. So if they give you better SoC and memory, they cut other hardware quality with cheaper one to maintain the profit. And that if the price is still similar, which is still to be seen.
WNR, 29 Jun 2018LOL I guess this is their way to ask for an apology to Indonesia, because V9 Indonesian Editio... morelol, actually since the beginning, all the V series are insanely-overpriced phones in Indonesia
Jamesschwarz987, 29 Jun 2018That's a 2MP depth sensing camera. Nothing to do with the primary camera. 13MP is large alread... moreDid I point out only to the 2mp camera? No. Im talking about the ENTIRE camera. All of it. Both rear and front cam. Yeah, even the depth sensing is lower res now. -_- And there no way you can defend 24mp front cam dropped all the way to 12mp.
The cameras on the standard V9 are worse than the ones on the 6Gb with better SoC, typical chinese logic. The profit must be fixed so if you add a better SoC and more memory cut here and there too, for maintain the profit. 13 MP (f/2.2, PDAF) + 2 MP (no AF) vs 16 MP (f/2.0, PDAF) + 5 MP. Horrible aperture in the main camera for low light photos in the SD660 version. And in the selfie: 12 MP (f/2.0, 1.28µm) vs 24 MP, f/2.0, 1080p. So the V9 with SD660 worse again, the 24 MP let you do the trick os 4 in 1 pixels at low light if necessary with 12 MP you can't due to get a too low resolution output.
This is vivo answer to redmi note5 (5 pro in India), and zenfone5. The selfie cam is actually better with dual pixel. New soc and bigger ram are also a nice welcome. Price is not that different from the base version. Only $60 pricier.

Whats the point in bringing the same kind of devices with most of identical looks and hardware... Atleast give some time to first models to sell a bit...
> picks 24MP 1/2.8" sensor for front camera, even worst smaller 1/3" 16MP sensor for back camera.
> Vivo, "selfie expert and leader".
