In keeping with what could be described as the common theme as of late among smartphone vendors operating in the Philippines, Vivo has discounted the Vivo V9 at retailers nationwide.

The midrange phone now costs P14,999 (roughly $281) after the price cut, from P17,990 ($337) at launch in March this year. The decision to make it more affordable comes just after OPPO and Huawei announced new retail prices for the F7 and Nova 2i, respectively.

Price-cut announcement for the Vivo V9

The OPPO F7 will currently run you P14,990 ($281), while the Huawei Nova 2i can be bought for as low as P9,999 ($188), as we had reported earlier today. Its regular price is P11,990 ($225).

As for the Vivo V9, the phone features a glossy design sporting a notch display and two back-facing cameras. The front camera, meanwhile, is impressively sharp, with 24 megapixels on the sensor.

And while there are faster options in the local market that sell for around the same price or less, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor mated to 4GB RAM inside the Vivo V9 can handle most tasks thrown at it with grace. The 3,260mAh battery easily gets the phone through a day and charges over a microUSB connection.
