Stickers, Face beauty video call, Camera Filter, HDR and Portrait lighting effect providing enough options for users to experiment with selfies.
AI-Optimized Mobile Experience
The Vivo V9’s AI Smart Engine ensures the best mobile performance by learning users’ habits and preferences. The AI Smart Engine prioritizes processing and storage resources to provide a fluid and optimized experience. In addition to ensuring smooth operation and save power, the AI Smart Engine can accurately predict user’s next task and launch favorite apps 20% faster. The V9’s AI Attention Sensing also keeps disruption to a minimum by automatically reducing the volume of message alerts, incoming calls and alarms.
Always Game on
The Vivo V9 enhances the experience for gaming enthusiasts with the new ‘Game Mode’. The feature allows users to block all interruptions such as messages, calls and alerts, thereby providing an uninterrupted gaming experience. Alternatively, one can change the settings to display phone calls from designated contacts only and choose to respond by swiping up on the screen.
