Vivo V9 Youth, a toned-down variant of the Vivo V9, was launched in India in late April this year. In a new development, the Vivo V9 Youth has received a price cut and its lone variant with 4GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage will now be available for a new best buy price of Rs. 17,990. The smartphone was launched at a price of Rs. 18,990 and is available across offline and online channels. Key highlights of the handset include a 19:9 display, an iPhone X-like notch, a selfie camera with AI integration, and a vertical dual camera setup on the rear.
The Vivo V9 Youth price cut in India was first discovered by Mumbai-based retailer, Mahesh Telecom, who has been reliable in terms of information around price cuts in the Indian market in the past, and later confirmed by the company to Gadgets 360. The V9 Youth is available for purchase via Vivo's offline partners as well as online partners including Amazon, Flipkart, Vivo E-store, and Paytm Mall.
