Another smartphone from Vivo is here – the Viva V9 Pro. And the company has even announced V9 Pro pricing for India. Vivo seems to be on a launch spree in India, and immediately after unveiling the Vivo V11 and Vivo V11 Pro, the Chinese brand is in the news again, this time for the India launch of a new handset in the popular V series smartphones.

Vivo India has launched the Vivo V9 Pro and it comes with 6GB of RAM, which is more than its younger siblings. Notably, it is powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor, but gets a regular old display notch.

Other features include a rear fingerprint scanner, just like on the Vivo V9, and the Pro model, which was recently unveiled in Indonesia, will be available exclusively on Amazon India.
