Just a day after launching the mid-range V5 smartphone in India, Vivo has taken the wraps off three new smartphones at an event in China. The first two are the selfie-focused Vivo X9 and the Vivo X9 Plus, which boast a pair of 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel dual-selfie cameras.

Let’s start with the Vivo X9 and the X9 Plus, and the talking point on both the smartphones is the dual-selfie camera up front. This setup includes a primary 20-megapixel snapper with Sony IMX376 sensor, and f/2.0 aperture for capturing images. The second 8-megapixel sensor is meant for capturing depth information, which should allow users to add DSLR-like bokeh effect to their selfies. Other features could include the ability to superimpose yourself on interesting backgrounds, as well as change the focus of the photo after having clicked it. At the back, both smartphones feature a 16-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, Phase Detection Auto-focus (PDAF) support and a single-LED flash.
