Vivo has launched its selfie-centric smartphone V19 in Kenya. The device features a dual punch-hole camera and Super AMOLED FHD plus Ultra O Screen design. The V19 combines extraordinary selfie capabilities and advanced technology, all in an elegant package.
“vivo is committed to innovating with the consumer in mind, and the V19 reflects our deep understanding of consumers’ needs. With industry-leading selfie technology, a beautiful design, and strong performance, V19 is perfect for young consumers who care about the camera and entertainment features” said Arthur Xian, vivo Kenya CEO.
V19’s dual front camera comprises a 32MP main camera and an 8MP super wide-angle camera to allow users to capture their best selfie moments, regardless of time or place. The front camera supports a wide-angle selfie of up to 105 degrees, with a built-in AI algorithm that can independently correct wide-angle distortion between foreground and background for authentic and dazzling shots. The front camera is also equipped with an Ultra-Stable Selfie Video feature, bringing a new level of stability to wide-angle selfie videos.
“V19 is a trendsetting smartphone built to complement young consumers’ lifestyles. Uniquely designed with a dual front camera that offers significant advantages for selfie lovers over other smartphones in its class, V19 is a breakthrough for the Kenyan market,” added Arthur Xian.
V19 has a powerful AI Quad Camera at the rear, made up of a 48MP main camera, 8MP super wide-angle camera, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP Bokeh camera. Along with Ultra Stable Video, V19 is packed with AI image and video features, including AI Video Filters, AI Video Editor, and AI Image Matting for professional-grade editable videos.
Both the front and rear cameras are equipped with special modes to capture stunning photos at night. The front camera’s Super Night Selfie mode – with Layer-Based Beautification, Spatial Merging Denoising, and Multiple Exposure features – allows users to take clear and beautiful selfies set against the backdrop of a night time city skyline or the countryside’s starry sky. The rear camera’s Super Night Portrait mode – with Multi-Frame Screening, Temporal Alignment, and Spatial Merging Denoising – allows users to capture high-resolution photos of all life’s wonders, even at night.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core 712 processor, the V19 offers a fast interface and top computing performance. It is equipped with 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM, allowing users to store everything they need for work, rest, and play.
In addition to industry-leading selfie capabilities and sleek design, V19 brings to the smartphone universe high performance and battery efficiency. For the added convenience of its young and always on-the-go customers, V19’s super-charged capacity 4500mAh battery provides long-lasting durability, while 33W vivo FlashCharge 2.0 technology enables a 0 to 54 percent charge in just 30 minutes.
The device will be available for pre-order at vivo outlets where it will officially go on sale on 2nd July 2020. It will be available in Gleam Black and Sleek Silver options for Kshs 41,000 locally.
