Vivo’s slogan such as “20-MP soft light dual camera, illuminate your beauty” and other slogans from time to time, we have to mention it again. The reason is simple: although the product line of Vivo is continuously integrated and upgraded, it always has that one. This product is very excellent in self-portrait performance.
This flagship selfie product series used to be the X series, but now the important task of improving the selfie’s performance is in the hands of the S series. The top front camera, combined with the familiar soft light and a more mature software selfie algorithm, makes the latest Vivo S9 a powerful selfie tool for fashionable boys and girls.
How can weight drag down fashion? Therefore, the Vivo S9 is specially built to be extremely thin and light. The S9 is Vivo’s thinnest 5G phone so far, with a thickness of only 7.35 mm and a weight of only 6.1oz. And the three colors, including Impression Pickup, Midnight Blue and Dew White, are also beautiful. For fashion models, this stunning design is enough to get a high score.
Besides, the Vivo S9 is currently one of the few models on the market that uses small bangs, but these small bangs accommodate high-level front-facing dual-camera hardware, so the small bangs design can also be understood. The straight-edged middle frame design on the body side has too caught up with this year’s retro trend. While the edges and corners are sharp, the middle frame also has a bright metal chamfer design to enhance the texture.
The Vivo S9 uses a 6.44-inch, 2400×1080 resolution AMOLED screen and supports a high refresh rate of 90Hz and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz. Its screen fingerprint can achieve the fastest unlocking speed of 0.32 seconds, bringing fast unlocking performance.
Don’t see the main features and routines of the S9 and think it is a vase. The Vivo S9 is the first 5G mobile phone on the market equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 1100 processor. Dimensity 1100 is one of MediaTek’s flagship series currently in service. It is built on a 6nm process and is equipped with four 2.6GHz Cortex-A78 performance cores and four 2GHz Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. The matching GPU is Mali-G77 MC9.
MediaTek Dimensity 1100 still integrates a 5-core ISP, increasing AI night scene shooting speed by 20% or performing more accurate AI scene recognition and AI object separation. Finally, Dimensity 1100 also supports USF 3.1 storage media, which can significantly increase daily operations speed, such as opening applications and loading games on the Vivo S9.
In addition to the above, the Vivo S9 also has an ultra-thin VC soaking plate to help dissipate heat, and it is equipped with a 4000mAh battery in a thin and light body that supports 33W flash charging.
The rear camera of the Vivo S9 uses a well-received cloud-level design. The rear camera uses a 64-MP primary camera + 8-MP ultra-wide-angle camera + 2-MP black-and-white camera with a rear three-camera module. The front camera is a front dual-camera module with a 44-MP primary camera and an 8-MP ultra-wide-angle camera, of which the 44-MP primary front camera supports autofocus.
To “illuminate your beauty,” Vivo S9 introduces a dual front fill light program. In addition to using the screen to fill up the light for selfies, Vivo also specially installs two hidden LED soft lights at a symmetrical position between the top of the screen and the frame of the S9 body, which can be turned on during selfies.
The Vivo S9 implements a 5-fold super-texture beauty algorithm through face 3D modeling, with a brand-new light and shadow portrait style and fun selfie gameplay in terms of the essential selfie function. These new features can better selfie look and feel for users who want to take good selfies at will.
Vivo S9 is certainly not a product positioned in the online market. It is more targeted at offline users in terms of design features and experience. Vivo S9 may not be the most cost-effective model at this price, but for users who have a strong need for Self Potraits, it may be one of the best models in the same price range for overall selfies, or even the only one.
It is straightforward to create a smart phone that can “illuminate your beauty,” but it takes a lot of persistence and hard work to implement this idea to the end and make selfie models form a continuous series of products.
