With the trend of edge-to-edge screens and narrow bezels, there is nowhere left to place a fingerprint scanner on the front of a smartphone. Device manufacturers these days have found multiple ways to move them to the back or side of a device. But it doesn’t have to be this way. vivo has introduced the in-display fingerprint scanner technology on their upmarket devices, such as the vivo NEX and the vivo X21. But now, this “high-end” feature is available at a lower price point and you can get it on the new vivo V11.
Malaysia’s tax holiday has finally come to an end with SST (Sales and Services Tax) taking effect starting 1 September 2018. If you’re thinking of getting a new smartphone, vivo Malaysia has announced that they are maintaining its current pricing without any impact from SST.
If you’re looking for a new selfie-centric smartphone that runs Android and comes with a “notch” display, the vivo V9 is launching in Malaysia very soon. The local launch event was teased by vivo’s Malaysian Fan Club page on Facebook and it’s happening right before Huawei announces its upcoming P20 flagship.
UPDATE: vivo V9 full hardware specs revealed.
Almost every other Chinese smartphone maker has jumped onto the “notch” bandwagon and the latest participant is vivo. Their next selfie-centric smartphone, the vivo V9, has been revealed ahead of its supposed launch that’s happening at the end of this month. This will succeed the vivo V7/V7+ and it is a major step up in both display and hardware.
