“The Vivo V11 Pro comes with the fourth-generation under-display fingerprint scanner and a waterdrop notch display”
After much anticipation, Vivo finally went ahead and launched its latest smartphone, the V11 Pro, in India on September 6th. The brand has recently established itself as one of the forerunners in the smartphone industry by bringing features such as an under-display fingerprint scanner on the Vivo X21 and the first self-elevating camera on the Vivo NEX. Now, the phonemaker is bringing the former feature to its mid-range V series of smartphones. The newest launch from the brand comes loaded with some nifty features, which is why it should be your next upgrade. If you are curious to know what makes us say so, read on to know about the top features of the Vivo V11 Pro.
A fourth-generation in-display fingerprint scanner
While Apples and Samsungs of the smartphone world were thinking of incorporating fingerprint scanner into the display, Vivo actually went ahead and did it. This allowed the handset maker to launch smartphones with impressive all-display fascia such as the NEX and X21. Now, Vivo is bringing the same technology to the mid-budget segment with the V11 Pro. Interestingly, instead of sitting on its laurels, Vivo is continuously working on improving the performance of the fingerprint reader, which is why we’re seeing the fourth-gen under-display fingerprint sensor on the latest offering from the brand’s stables. This makes the optical scanner more secure, accurate and faster than previous generations.
That’s not all, the smartphone also comes with an IR face unlock module, which can unlock the phone even in dark conditions.
The Vivo V11 Pro flaunts a dual camera module on the rear, featuring a 12-megapixel f/1.8 camera backed by a 5-megapixel f/2.4 secondary shooter. The larger aperture size on the primary camera ensures better images in low-light situations. And if that’s not enough, Vivo has armed the dual camera module with AI-enabled scene detection, which can automatically recognise the frame you are trying to capture and adjusts camera settings accordingly for an enhanced output. Vivo has also loaded the camera app with features like bokeh mode, pro mode, slow motion, AR stickers and integrated Google Lens.
For selfies, you get a powerful 25MP sensor on the front, which also comes with AI-enabled features such as gender detection, face beauty, Portrait framing, Face Shaping and more.
A spec sheet to reckon with
The V11 Pro comes equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. The processor comes with a die size of 14nm and Kryo 260 cores, which results in a superior performance, with equally good battery efficiency. The SoC is further backed by 6GB RAM, which ensures that you open multiple apps without worrying about the fact that they are running in the background. Further, you get 64GB of built-in storage, which can be further expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card.
Vivo’s V11 Pro also comes with what the brand is calling Halo FullView Display 3.0, which refers to the teardrop-shaped notch on the top. The Super AMOLED display measures 6.41-inches diagonally and offers a screen resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels.
AI features across the board
One of the biggest advantages that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset brings to the table is a dedicated AI Engine. This enables the phone utilising the chipset to offer AI features at both the software and hardware level. We’ve already talked about the AI camera features, and the brand has also integrated its own Jovi AI assistant on the device. Vivo’s Jovi assistant has been designed to learn from the everyday usage and suggest apps and tasks accordingly.
There is also an AI Game Mode on the handset with Gaming Assistant, which enables features like Floating Call Alerts, Background Calls and the game keyboard to ensure distraction-free gaming experience.
A beefy battery with smart charging
Vivo has equipped the V11 Pro with a powerful 3,400mAh battery to keep up with the loaded spec sheet. However, if you’re worried that the phone will take longer to charge, then the company has addressed this issue with the inclusion of Dual-Engine Fast Charging. This proprietary technology comprises the parallel connection of the two charging chips to charge faster. The method is completely secure as well as there are nine different safeguarding features for protecting the battery and smartphone.
With a price tag of Rs 25,990, the Vivo V11 Pro is a solid offering in the upper mid-range segment. And if the aforementioned points don’t sway you, then the phone’s stunning design most definitely will, available in interesting colour options of Starry Night or Nebula hue.
