Vivo V15 Pro has been officially launched in India at an event in New Delhi. The successor to the V11 Pro comes with bumped-up specifications including a pop-up selfie camera, much like what we have already seen on the Vivo Nex, but with a 32-megapixel sensor. The Vivo V15 Pro also has a setup of three cameras – the first time on a Vivo phone – comprising a 48-megapixel Quad Pixel sensor among the other two.
Vivo V15 Pro Specifications
The Vivo V15 Pro is touted to be the world’s first smartphone with a 32-megapixel pop-up selfie camera. The front camera on the smartphone has been equipped within the phone’s cabinet which sticks out only when the camera app is opened, or facial scanning is required. This is similar to the pop-up camera available on the Vivo Nex.
There is a combination of three cameras on the rear of the Vivo V15 Pro. The smartphone bears a primary 48-megapixel Quad Pixel sensor with an aperture of f/1.8. The other two cameras include an 8-megapixel Super Wide camera and a tertiary 5-megapixel camera. An LED flash module accompanies the cameras. AI capabilities power the cameras, the company says, will offer features such as AI Portrait, AI Beauty, and body shape correction.
Vivo V15 Pro sports a 6.39-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED Ultra FullView display with a 91.62 percent screen-to-body ratio. There is no notch on the top as the front camera, for which it is required, has been moved within a motorized tray on the top. There are thin bezels on the smartphone along with a narrow chin at the bottom. The smartphone runs Funtouch OS based on Android 9 Pie.
The Vivo V15 Pro is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE processor, making it the first such smartphone in India. The smartphone packs a 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which can be expanded further via a microSD card slot. The smartphone has a 3.5mm headphone jack and an earpiece speaker, which has been retained unlike the one on the Vivo Nex. The Vivo V15 Pro has Dual Engine fast charging on a 3700mAh battery under the hood.
Commenting on the V15 Pro launch, Kent Cheng, CEO, Vivo India said, “Innovation is one of our core values. Besides the industry’s first Elevating Front Camera that gave us the ultimate bezel-less display, we are always looking to introduce game-changing features, such as higher-quality cameras and smarter AI services that take the mobile experience to a new dimension.”
