VOTO V9 with HD+ notch display and 3,000mAh battery launched in India for 6,999 INR
An array of Chinese brands are thriving in the ever-expanding Indian smartphone market. One of them is VOTO Mobiles, which is, of course, less heard of, but already has a bunch of smartphones under its belt since its debut in India in the mid of 2017.
Now VOTO has launched one more brand new smartphone dubbed as “VOTO V9” in India. Priced at INR6,999, the VOTO V9 aims its gun at the buyers in tier 2 and tier 3 cities who appreciate well-designed features-rich devices at a budget price point.
The VOTO V9, which is touted as “Future Ready Mobile” by the company, is powered by a quad-core chipset and features a non-slippery design with a curved back. Another worth mentioning highlight is its notch display. The smartphone is already put up on sale via leading offline channels across the country in Black, Blue and Red color options.
The VOTO V9 flaunts a 5.85-inch 2.5 curve HD+ IPS display in 19.5:9 aspect ratio, which is also marked by the presence of a horizontal notch up front. Thanks to the curvy back the handset feels grippy in hands. The reflective edges and the metal-trimmed camera module as well as fingerprint scanner instantly catch the eyes.
Under the hood, the VOTO V9 makes use of a MediaTek 6739 quad-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz. The processor is aided by 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
It runs the latest Android 8.1 Pie Oreo flavor out of the box and is backed by a modest 3,000mAh battery which, however, lacks the fast charging support.
On the optics front, the VOTO V9 tacks on a vertically aligned dual-rear camera setup that comprises a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor, ensuring bokeh effect for the photographs. For selfies and video chatting, the smartphone is stacked with an 8MP camera on the front with Panorama View Mode.
For the biometrics, the VOTO V9 primarily depends on a rear-mounted circular fingerprint scanner although it is bestowed with a Face Unlock feature as well.
The VOTO V9 supports dual SIM (VoLTE+VoLTE) functionality, 4G, Bluetooth, GPS, OTG, micro USB port, and 3.5mm audio jack amongst other things. Moreover, the company highlights the Google Certification for VOTO V9 that underlines seamless software experience for the users with minimum buggy encounters.
