vivo has just announced the vivo S9 5G and S9e 5G – the successors to the vivo S7 with a similar design but upgraded hardware.

The vivo S9 5G and S9e 5G share most of the spec sheet but differ in chipset, memory configuration, battery, and front sensor.

They share a 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and support for HDR10+. The S9 5G houses a 44MP main front camera joined by an 8MP ultrawide lens in its notch, while the S9e 5G replaces this with a lone 32MP camera.

The S9 5G and S9e 5G have the same 64MP main triple camera unit in the back joined by an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP macro lens.
