In an event in China, Vivo today unveiled the Vivo X9 and X9 Plus smartphones both of which feature dual front cameras, 20MP f/2.0 with Sony IMX376 sensor and another 8MP f/2.0 camera. The smaller 8MP camera is used to capture depth information for better selfies.

At the back, you have a 16MP f/2.0 camera on both phones with LED flash and phase-detection autofocus. Clearly, Vivo thinks that people are more interested in taking selfies. There is a subtle change in design at the back, where the antenna bands have been pushed to the periphery in a U-shaped curve.
