Vivo S9 series pre-bookings have gone now live through the company's official website in China ahead of its launch. The official listing includes some renders showing the design of the upcoming Vivo phone. Separately, Vivo has revealed on Weibo that in addition to the regular Vivo S9, the new series will also include the Vivo S9e. It could be a watered-down version of the Vivo S9. The Vivo S9 series launch is scheduled for March 3.

The pre-booking page on the Vivo China site gives us a clear look at the back of the Vivo S9. The phone appears to have flat edges, similar to the iPhone 12 series. It is also seen with triple rear cameras housed in a rectangular-shaped module that looks similar to the camera module on the Vivo X60 and some other Vivo phones.

Vivo also appears to offer the Vivo S9 in three distinct colour options with a gradient finish.
