2. Oppo F7
The Oppo F7 will be launched on March 26 and comes with almost the same specs as the Vivo V9. Oppo presents its phone as a premium product laced with features like face detection and 19:9 screen ratio. Oppo F7 will be priced at Rs 24, 999.

3. Mi MIX 2
The Mi MIX 2 has 18:9 screen ratio and comes equipped with 6GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory. The Mi MIX 2 has been launched and is available at a discounted price of Rs 32, 999.

So as you can see, the competition in the full screen or near full-screen phones is getting intense with every passing day as phones try to imitate the iPhone X notch. But the customers won't be complaining about the phones with 18:9 or 19:9 ratio cost fraction of what the iPhone does.
Which phone to buy depends completely on your need and priority. If premium camera and selfies are what you want from a phone, then opt for Vivo V9 and Oppo F7, they also come with a sleek design but if performance and durability are what you are looking for, then Mi MIX 2 should be in your cart. However, the Mi Mix 2 faces tough competition from OnePlus 5 as they both are priced in the same range.
