VIVO has kick-started the year with a bang, literally. First the news of Aamir Khan, the perfectionist becoming the brand ambassador and then announcing the most feature-rich mid-range smartphone of the year – VIVO V9.
Before we talk about the Vivo V9 let’s look at the perfectionist playing around with the smartphone –
Now weren’t they awesome? Well now that you have had a glimpse of the device and its camera features let me share things you need to know about the VIVO V9 –
- VIVO V9 is a Top Notch device that is heavily inspired by iPhone X on both the front and back. But that’s a great thing as iPhone design has been a Gold standard since the launch of iPhone 4 in 2010. I have been using the Vivo V9 for a few weeks now along with my iPhone X and trust me the 6.3″ FHD+ screen with a 90% Screen-to-body ratio makes the V9 a stunner. The 19:9 FullView 2.0 Display with those narrow bezels makes it a really immersive experience. Flip it over and you’ll find a streamlined 3D curved back, ergonomically optimized and lightweight for absolute comfort in the palm of your hand.
- Just like the Display, the V9 takes the Selfie game a notch higher with its AI-powered selfies. Now, VIVO is known for its Selfie Camera prowess and just when we thought that there is nothing more we can do with selfies. The V9 surprises us with features like – AI Face Beauty, AR Stickers and AI Face Lightning. Let’s understand these features one by one –
- AI Face Beauty refers to a database of almost one million facial images from all over the world, it detects your gender, age, skin tone, and texture, as well as the lighting environment, and uses this information to deliver astonishingly clear, beautiful selfies. It can also learn your customized setting preferences and apply these settings automatically each time you take a photo. Think of it as your personal make-up artist, ready to make you look naturally perfect in every shot.
- AR Stickers features numerous stickers that you can use to decorate your selfies and show off your cute side. Set your style to super-sweet, funny or punk, and transform your look with just a single click. Get ready to be playful and enjoy some serious photo fun.
- AI Face Lightning With every photograph, the V9’s algorithm transforms the original 2D photo into a 3D model in order to process the light authentically and artistically. It can allow you to choose from a range of light effects to create model-style pictures. Get ready to transform any environment into your own professional photo studio.
- Like I mentioned in the last point that Vivo leads the Selfie smartphone race that every smartphone makers have tried to conquer. And with the V9, the company is on the right path to make a dent in the primary camera competition. In fact, it already is way ahead of its closest competition the recently launched Oppo F7. With Vivo’s latest innovation – AI HDR, you will never be frustrated by backlight again. Enjoy clear, natural and richly detailed photos every time. Here are some samples –
- Unleash this dragon with the Qualcomm. The V9 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor, and equipped with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, delivering amazing performance for even the most intensive gaming and social media tasks. It also features the latest Android 8.1, which boosts battery life and operation speed, and improves security. The updated FunTouch OS 4.0 adds powerful tweaks and gestures to make the User Experience flawless. Even with the 64GB of ROM users get a dedicated MicroSD card slot and two 4G SIM slots.
- Last but not the least, this beauty and the beast is also one of the most secure smartphone thanks to a various way to lock and unlock the device including AI Face Access. With the all-new AI Face Access technology, the V9 scans your facial features and unlocks instantaneously upon activation. It also identifies unauthorized access attempts by detecting light-reflected surfaces and subtle facial movements, helping prevent phone unlocking through use of photos or video.
