“The Vivo V15Pro flaunts an elevating 32MP selfie snapper, a triple-camera module placed at the back and a 6.39″ Ultra FullView™ display with an in-display fingerprint scanner”
2019 appears to be shaping up quite well when it comes to innovation in the smartphone industry with features like full-screen displays and movable cameras becoming the order of the day. We recently conducted a series of polls on Twitter asking readers what they would like to see in a smartphone priced below Rs 30k. It seems that Vivo has perfectly managed to grasp what users are looking for with the soon-to-be-launched Vivo V15Pro. Wondering how’s that possible? Well, we list down not one, not two, but five things that make the V15 Pro a compelling buy.
A pop-up selfie camera with the best-in-class resolution
Vivo is a pioneer when it comes to the elevating front camera mechanism (remember NEX?). Now, the V15 Pro is all set to bring the same technology to consumers at an affordable price point. Even more interesting is the fact that the brand has significantly bumped up the resolution of the selfie shooter. The handset ships with an industry-leading 32MP sensor on the front, which uses four adjoining pixels to take in more light to produce sharper images. Considering more than 50 percent audience voted in favour of a 32MP sensor for the front camera, the Vivo V15 Pro would surely win the hearts of buyers.
Triple rear cameras with a 48MP primary sensor
Dual cameras are passé. In our poll, almost 60 percent of users said that they are looking for smartphones with triple rear cameras. And the Vivo V15Pro, once again, ups the ante by not just offering a trio of snappers on the back, but also utilizing a high-res 48MP lens for the primary camera. The main sensor is accompanied by an 8MP wide-angle and 5MP telephoto sensors. It comes as no surprise that the capabilities offered by these snappers are what users are also looking for from their smartphones.
That’s not all as Vivo has packed the camera app with features like Professional mode, Bokeh, HDR, Panorama, AR Stickers, and Super Wide Angle. There’s a healthy dose of AI-based options too, including AI Face Shaping, AI Selfie Lighting, AI Scene Recognition, AI Portrait Framing, AI Body Beauty and Super Wide Angle.
The first Snapdragon 675-powered smartphone in India
The Vivo V15 Pro is also the launch vehicle for the latest mid-range silicon from Qualcomm – the Snapdragon 675. The octa-core processor is built on the 11nm process and has been designed to complement gaming, cameras, and AI-based functions. The chipset is further backed by 6GB of RAM, which is yet another popular choice. With such powerful hardware, the smartphone is expected to be a performance powerhouse with smart AI-backed features.
A 6.39-inch Ultra FullView™ Display with Fifth Generation In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
The use of elevating camera has allowed Vivo to achieve an impressive screen-to-body ratio, which is evident from the next-to-no bezels around the display. This has allowed the brand to offer a large 6.39-inch Ultra FullView display with the V15Pro, without making it too unwieldy. The Super AMOLED screen bears a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels and gets a layer of 2.5D curved glass on top. The screen has also been equipped with the latest fifth generation in-display fingerprint scanner, which is faster and more accurate than the previous iteration.
Features a powerful 3,700mAh battery with Dual-Engine fast charging
Powering the show on the Vivo V15 Pro is a beefy 3,700mAh battery, which should last a day with ease. Moreover, the Snapdragon 675 chip is quite efficient when it comes to power management, thanks to the 11nm die size. Vivo has also equipped the V15 Pro with Dual-Engine Quick Charging technology, which ensures that the battery juices up in no time.
There’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing a number of budget and mid-range smartphones over the coming weeks, ranging from the likes of the Redmi Note 7 to the OPPO F11 Pro, and from Samsung’s Galaxy M30 to the Realme 3. And while all of them are loaded offerings in their own right, it’s pretty evident that the Vivo V15 Pro comes closest to offering what consumers are actually looking for. Be it a full-screen display minus the notch, a high-res 32MP selfie camera, triple rear cameras with a 48MP snapper, loaded internals with 6GB RAM – the V15 Pro is a complete package. So what are you waiting for? The smartphone is all set to launch in the country on February 20th, and you can catch the launch live here.
