Matching the prices of competing phones

OPPO has just reduced the retail price of the OPPO F7 in the Philippines and its close competitor, Vivo, thought of the same move to give way to new smartphones in their pipeline.

Starting this August, the Vivo V9 is almost three thousand pesos cheaper: from PhP 17,990, it now has a retail price of PhP 14,999. If you wish to have a full-screen phone with strong selfie capabilities, then it’s now a good time to grab a V9.

In case you need a refresher, the Vivo V9 is a phone sporting a notched and near-borderless 6.3-inch display powered by a Snapdragon 626 processor with 4GB of memory and 64GB of expandable storage. The phone also has dual 16- and 5-megapixel rear shooters and a whopping 24-megapixel selfie camera.

The phone draws power from its respectable 3260mAh battery and it runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.0 out of the box.
