Vivo launched the V9 smartphone in India last month. We already brought you the unboxing and first impressions of the smartphone, here we have the camera samples from the smartphone. The phone has a 16-megapixel rear camera with single LED flash, f/2.0 aperture along with a secondary 5-megapixel camera to capture depth information. It also has a 24-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash and f/2.0 aperture with A.I face beauty and has AR Stickers.
Apart from the standard auto mode, it has Professional mode (to adjust Exposure, ISO (50 to 3200), Shutter speed, White balance and Focus manually), Panorama, PPT mode, Time-lapse, Ultra HD (Capture 63MP images by stitching several shots), Slow motion and AR Stickers. There is also face beauty mode (to adjust skin tone, buffing and whitening) for both the rear front cameras with live preview. It has portrait mode for both front and rear cameras that blurs backgrounds. Even thought it has a single front camera, it uses software to blur the background, which is not perfect. Bokeh for rear camera uses dual rear cameras so that you can adjust the focus (from f/0.95 to f/16) even after capturing the image with the mode.
Coming to the image quality. Daylight shots and macro shots were good, but sometimes the image is not bright. HDR shots were better with improved contrast and saturation. Low-light shots had noise and the phone automatically switches to low-light mode if there is poor lighting. Images with flash were good and the flash is not overpowering even in closeup shots. The front-facing camera is one of the best in the range for capturing selfies. It is also good for video chats.

It can record videos at maximum 4K resolution at 30fps, but the slow motion is recorded only at 480p resolution. Video quality is decent. Check out the sample below.
