Always on the bleeding edge of photographic technologies in smartphones, vivo has just announced their V20 series of smartphones featuring an industry-leading front-facing camera technology in the form of Eye Autofocus. vivo aims to have the V20 series be the choice of many looking for an all-round phone that features a spectacular selfie camera.

vivo V20 & V20 Pro

Both the vivo V20 and V20 Pro features the latest 44-megapixel Eye Autofocus front camera module that is powered by advanced algorithms capable of focusing and tracking on subjects even if they are moving. vivo targets the people who vlogs or takes selfies, with built-in features that sharpen photo and video quality for multi-person photography or videography as well as SteadiFace Selfie Video that stabilises the subject using a face-focused algorithm that crops the edges and centres the frame.

The V20 Pro also has a dedicated 8-megapixel Super Wide-Angle Camera that has a distortion-correction algorithm that creates ultra-wide photos that look natural without undesired distortion at the edges. Both phones in the V20 series comes with plenty of dedicated front-facing camera features including Slo-Mo Selfie Video, 4K Selfie Video and Super Night Selfie. Dual-View Video is also included to allow for creative shooting by combining footage from the front and back cameras.

Continuing on with the V20 and V20 Pro’s array of camera features bring us to the triple rea-camera set-up that sports a 64-megapixel main camera featuring Super Night Mode that supports tripod shooting, wide-angle night scenes and Stylish Night filter. All of that housed within a sleek design that measures only 7.39mm thick for the V20 Pro that gives it the crown of slimmest 5G smartphone currently for sale in the market. The AG Matte Glass with Dual Tone Step is chosen to minimise the sensation of a rear camera protrusion.

Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 700-series mobile CPUs, the V20 and V20 Pro have enough processing power for the majority of users with the V20 housing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G while the V20 Pro has the 5G-capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. Both phones are powered by a 4,000mAh battery that supports vivo’s 33W FlashCharge technology for fast charging that does not compromise on battery health.
