In recent years, mobile phone companies are focusing on promoting their series, aiming to offer different models of the same smartphones at different price tags. Along with Apple, other smartphones are releasing regular and pro models of the phone. Vivo has already launched the Pro models of its smartphones but now the first time, Vivo has come up with a special edition or SE with the launch of Vivo V20 earlier this month. The smartphone is placed below last month's regular model of Vivo V20 with modest hardware specs while playing big on design and camera.
The Vivo V20 SE is going to cost you Rs. 20,999 which makes it a direct rival of Poco X3, Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, Realme 7 Pro, Samsung Galaxy M51, and even the Vivo V20. The phone looks great just like the other phones in the series. The V20 SE features a plastic body and a mirror-like rear panel which is way too reflective and looks expensive. This also makes the rear a fingerprint magnet. The smartphone comes in two color options - Gravity black and Aquamarine Green. The Vivo V20 SE back panel houses a triple camera setup within a thin module.
You get two physical buttons for power and volume rocker on the right side of the phone. The SIM tray slides on the top and a 3.5mm headphone jack rests at the bottom part of the phone. When it comes to color variations and brightness, the SE didn't compromise a good and did a great job in both areas. The display is sharp and bright. Although there isn't much configuration option for display refresh rate.
The phone uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset processor, which is usually found in low-priced smartphones in 2020. The phone comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which can be further extended to 1TB using a microSD card. With this smartphone, Vivo isn't surely promising you a powerful phone but it is one of the smartphones available in the market that does what it is supposed to do.
The phone has a triple rear camera system with a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel depth camera sensor. The phone is powered by a 4,100mAh battery bundled with a 33W flash charge charger.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has not hit the European smartphone markets for the first time. They are targeting consumers in the premium and budget-category of the smartphone industry there. The company is one of a few Chinese manufacturers who went international after achieving the considerable success in their homeland over the past decade. China is a huge market due to its population and is considered the second biggest hub of the smartphone manufacturers. Vivo isn't the biggest in China yet but doing good in its own capacity.
The only chinese company that has made it to European countries so far is Huawei, but now Vivo hopes to make its debut with fully-featured and affordable handsets. Denny Deng, the head of Vivo's European business said, "We are truly excited to showcase our first ever line-up of smartphones for the European market. To ensure we had a clear understanding of the market, we spoke to 9000 consumers across Europe, to understand how these devices are integrated into their daily life.
The company has launched Vivo X51 5G as the first flagship smartphone for the consumers who prefer to buy a high-end handset. The phone comes with full support to next generation networks without an additional cost. The main selling points are imaging capabilities, supported by a Gimbal camera system that compensates for natural shaking and distorted movies or images. Meanwhile the Y20, Y70, and Y11 are mid-range devices that aim to deliver as much capability as possible for the price. Vivo has also planned to offer Android and ditch the highly customized user interface to attract western consumers. The smartphone will support Google Assistant rather than Vivo's own alternative.
BBK Electronics is the global company behind Chinese brands Oppo and OnePlus. Most European buyers will be acquainted with at any rate one of these names, however soon there will be a third brand available - Vivo.
The Vivo X51 5G is the primary gadget coming to Europe
Vivo has declared its goal to promptly enter the UK and select European business sectors with the Vivo X51 5G, a renamed adaptation of the Vivo X50 Pro that has been accessible in different nations for quite a while.
Retailing at £749 and €799, the Vivo cell phone flaunts a 6.6-inch bended AMOLED screen total with a smooth 90Hz revive rate, a little gap for the selfie camera, and a Full-HD+ (2376 x 1080p) goal.
Those highlights are absolutely slick, but on the other hand they're very normal among likewise evaluated Android gadgets. Where the Vivo X51 5G truly stands apart from the group is in the camera office.
Vivo's gimbal camera framework is the champion element
Vivo has fitted the telephone with a serious 48-megapixel f/1.6 camera combined with a gimbal picture adjustment framework. The last took a very long time of R&D endeavors to make and eventually gives much better adjustment to video.
This additionally clarifies the sheer size of the camera. The gimbal framework is multiple times bigger than standard OIS cameras and requires multiple times more space than mainstream periscope zoom shooters.
Sitting close to the primary sensor is a 13-megapixel camera for picture photographs, a 8-megapixel super wide-point snapper, and 8-megapixel 5x periscope zoom camera that likewise empowers up to 60x advanced zoom.
With respect to the previously mentioned selfie camera, that sensor arrives in at 32-megapixels.
The Snapdragon 765G and heaps of capacity
In the engine is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, a chipset that can be found inside the Google Pixel 5, OnePlus Nord, and LG Wing. Clients ought to anticipate a smart encounter, yet not one comparable to the Snapdragon 865-fueled Galaxy S20 FE 5G.
A noteworthy 256GB of non-expandable inward stockpiling and 8GB of RAM are likewise important for the Vivo X51 5G bundle. Also, as the cell phone's name proposes, 5G networks are upheld.
On the product side of things, Vivo has affirmed that it will transport the cell phone with Android 10 and FunTouch OS. In any case, to more readily suit European purchasers, a few changes have been made to the custom UI that cause it to take after stock Android all the more intently.
The entirety of this will be matched with the standard three years of security updates and Vivo likewise says an update to Android 11 is not far off.'
Finishing the Vivo X51 5G bundle is an in-show unique mark scanner, NFC, and a 4,315mAh battery that upholds 33W quick charging, the last of which empowers a full charge in less than 70 minutes.
Vivo likewise has some less expensive telephones for Europe
Notwithstanding the Vivo X51 5G, Vivo has likewise presented the Vivo Y70, Vivo Y20s, and Vivo Y11s with an emphasis on the low-end and mid-range cell phone markets.
Vivo hasn't reported a drawn out procedure for the European market, yet the Chinese organization will without a doubt be battling close by individual BBK brand Oppo to gobble up Huawei's piece of the overall industry.
The last has begun to tumble outside of China because of an absence of Google uphold, something Vivo offers.
In an offer to venture around the score plan, numerous organizations have been making an assortment of elective arrangements. This comes as opening punch camera patterns, slideout cameras, and popup cameras, however we believe that Vivo is truly taking the cake on this one with their new IFEA idea smart phone.
As should be obvious in the renders above, Vivo has a thought wherein the forward looking camera isn't just a popup camera, however it can really be eliminated and utilized as an independent gadget. The plan has evidently won the organization the Red Dot Design Award, despite the fact that do take note of this is an idea and we don't know whether Vivo has plans to make it a reality.
That being stated, we don't know whether this may fundamentally be the best of thoughts. Without a doubt, we can see a ton of expected use for a separable camera module. The port could likewise be utilized for outside frill like perhaps a glimmer unit, an outer battery pack, wellbeing adornments, etc, yet our fundamental concern would lose the module.
Given how little it will be, it would be simple for you to drop it or lose it. We are likewise worried that one day the connection could turn out to be free and drop out of our pockets, and we'd prefer not to figure how much clients may need to pay to supplant it. We do imagine that it is as yet a somewhat cunning plan and one that we may not really have thought of, so praise to Vivo for that!
Meanwhile, other handset creators are attempting to fit the camera module under the presentation. So far we've seen endeavors by Xiaomi and ZTE, yet we can't address the picture quality caught by these cameras yet.
The Vivo X50 pro is the first phone this year in the X-series after a very long time. The last phone in the X series was the Vivo X21 and it was launched two years ago in 2018. The new Vivo X50 pro aims to the people who use the mobile phone to take pictures and shot videos a lot. The phone features a stabilization technology of its kind that eliminates the need for any external gimbal to shot stable videos without any shakiness or blurriness appear due to the hand or body movement. It also improves the still photography.
The Vivo X50 Pro is a stylish phone with a pretty good build quality. It feels premium and quite sturdy while holding in the hands. Vivo X50 has opted for a curved display with thin bezels all around, which gives it an edge-to-edge display impression. At first, you might think of it as a similar design as of Samsung devices due to curved display but that's all. Vivo has adopted a thin, metallic frame for the device, which is something similar to the curved design and the curved rear glass panel. The phone looks slim and sleek. It may get cold to touch in a cold room due to its body. Vivo uses Schott's Xensation Up glass on the front and rear side of the phone to give it scratch protection. The power and volume buttons are easy to reach out to.
While the phone has curved sides, it sits well in the hands of users due to the flat top and bottom of the Vivo X50 pro. For connectivity, it uses a USB Type-C port, SIM tray, primary microphone, and speaker at the bottom side. The company has put the primary microphone close to the SIM tray which can be mistaken for the ejector sometimes. The phone is available in alpha grey color only and there is a slight shift in color when light bounces off the back panel. It has a matte, frosted finish which helps to hide any fingerprints or smudges you leave on the phone.
The Vivo X50 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor and probably the first phone to be launched in India with this processor. It supports 5G connectivity and available in 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage options. The device features a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate with HDR+ certification. The phone has a quad-camera system with 48-megapixel primary camera and a gimbal stabilization feature. This feature is unique but we don't know so far that if it works or just a hype created by the company.
