It is clear that the smartphone industry has benefited from Vivo’s strong emphasis on mobile photography technology. Their X series has a consistent tendency to introduce new features for the smartphone camera and to be the first in the world to implement them. The vivo X series camera experience is the ideal environment to bring these new technologies to users in a way that is easy for them to use.
Now, with the upcoming global launch of the vivo X80 series, we look at how the company intends to promote this legendary line of flagship phones. So far, we know that vivo is continuing its collaboration with ZEISS and intends to launch these new phones with a new self-designed image chip. That being said, here are six reasons why the vivo X80 series should be on the radar.
1. Industry-leading mobile photography
The vivo X series has a proven track record of redefining moving images. Previously, vivo introduced features such as the gimbal camera system and extreme night vision with the launch of the vivo X50 series. The vivo X60 series brought us a collaboration with ZEISS and the brilliant ZEISS Biotar Portrait Style (inspired by ZEISS Contax Biotar 1.5 / 75). With the launch of the vivo X70 series, we saw the first self-designed V1 imaging chip from vivo, paving the way for more powerful image processing.
This strong focus on images means that regular users can use professional photography tools when choosing the vivo X series. Photos taken on vivo phones can be edited with powerful built-in editing tools. The complete process of taking high quality photos and preparing them for posting is simple and fun.
2. Deepening the collaboration with ZEISS
We know that Vivo intends to double its collaboration with ZEISS, a global leader in optics and optoelectronics, renowned for its unique visual style and high-quality imaging technology. vivo and ZEISS team up and aim to shape the future of mobile imagery together, which is a good reason to keep an eye on the vivo X80 series.
With the vivo X70 series, the ZEISS Style Portrait feature has taken photography to the next level. With a different bokeh style from the lenses, users were able to make truly professional-looking portraits in an effortless way. These bokeh effects were inspired by the classic ZEISS lenses, making this type of collaboration meaningful and exciting for photography lovers.
After announcing its collaboration with ZEISS, vivo introduced the ZEISS vivo co-designed imaging system to the X series. Starting with the X70 series, all rear cameras in all models have certified compliance with ZEISS T * coverage, which significantly helps when shooting in low light conditions. This level of professional quality photo processing is something we can expect from the X80 series.
3. Portrait Photography – Several ways to create cinematic-like photos
As users now have high expectations for ZEISS style portrait, vivo and ZEISS aim to bring us even more fantastic portrait images with the new “ZEISS Cinematic Style Bokeh” feature. You will be able to recreate the classic Hollywood aesthetic using the movie-like bokeh effect. After experiencing the ZEISS-style portrait from the X70 vivo series, users can expect to explore more of the X80 series.
4. Dynamic image updates – Gimbal benefits extension
The innovative gimbal system was first launched with the X50, then updated with the ultra-wide 48MP gimbal camera from the X60 series. It continued to evolve in the dual-camera configuration of the X70 series Ultra-Sensing cardan shaft. vivo has continued to bring high-performance stabilization technology to its users. The X80 series will continue to build on this legacy with new portrait motion tracking technology that can reduce photo shake.
Thanks to its ultra-established photography capabilities, human background segmentation technology can do an amazing job of separating a person’s background from a photo. Then, intelligent bokeh technology is used to produce linear motion blur, while the subject of the photograph remains clear.
5. Night Scene Shooting – Advancing night shooting features
Shooting night scenes is something that vivo has been particularly good with in previous editions of the X series. The X70 Pro has been recognized as one of the best low-light photo phones with the Ultra-Sensing Sensor for brightness and noise reduction. in dark environments, and the X80 series intends to continue to build on this success.
With the vivo X80, we expect a new night mode to continue to build this reputation. You’ll have access to impressive night photography performance with optimized top color tones.
