The Vivo V9 smartphone was just launched, boasting a FullView display and “enhanced AI-powered experience“. And just in case the new features don’t impress you, they also introduced not one, not two, but THREE new celebrity endorsers.
The Vivo V9 Launch & Celebrity Endorsements
Vivo believes in the power of launch gambits and celebrity endorsements. Check out the awesome laser light show they put up, and the ringing celebrity endorsements of Janna Nick, Joyce Chu and Alvin Chong.
The Vivo V9 Feature Presentation
Not impressed by laser light show, or celebrity power? Let Vivo Oversea Product Manager Guo Chao Yang give you an incredibly detailed presentation on the Vivo V9 smartphone.
The Vivo V9 is as compact as a traditional 5.5-inch phone but offers a 6.3-inch display. The screen size was increased by 5.2%, with 19% thinner side bezels, compared to the previous generation’s Vivo V7+.
The Vivo V9 has a 24 MP front camera, and a dual-lens main camera with 16 MP and 5 MP sensors. These cameras have been enhanced with “AI capabilities” that are based on software and machine learning.
Its Super HDR feature auto-detects the surroundings in order to produce better colours, more details and better tones. Super HDR captures and merges more frames and intelligently merges them to cater to more extreme lighting scenarios. it also employs smart scene detection to balance the lighting of the person and the background to create a natural feel.
AI Face Beauty identifies users’ age, gender, skin tone and texture, as well as the surrounding lighting environment. Its AI algorithm, trained using a database of almost one million facial images from around the world, allows AI Face Beauty to adapt and apply the ideal algorithm for optimized photos. As your usage increases, the AI will also learn your customized setting preferences, automatically creating the ideal photo every time and exactly the way you want.
The new AI Selfie Lighting feature also allows you to create artistic photo masterpieces anytime anywhere without an elaborate equipment setup. The Vivo V9’s AI algorithm transforms the facial profile in the original 2D photo into a 3D model to process the light accents authentically. You can choose from a range of effects like Natural Light, Studio Light, Stereo Light and Monochrome Background.
AI-Optimized Mobile Experience
The Vivo AI Smart Engine learns your usage habits and preferences, to help prioritize processing and storage resources. As the AI Smart Engine picks up on your usage habits, it can accurately predict your next move and have your favorite apps launch 20% faster.
The updated AI Face Access technology can detect the reflection of natural skin and the subtle movements of the face to further reduce the possibility of accidently unlocking when shown photos or videos. AI Face Access for App-Lock even helps secure your data and privacy for individual applications.
The AI Attention Sensing also recognizes when you’re looking at the phone to keep disruption to a minimum by automatically reducing the volume of message alerts, incoming calls and alarms, since you’re already looking at the screen.
Updated Game Mode
Updated Game Mode delivers the hyper-focused environment required for the most dedicated gamers with the ability to block all messages, calls and alerts while gaming. Alternately, you can set it up to display phone calls from designated contacts only. The new picture-in-picture for games feature means you won’t even have to exit the game to reply to critical messages.
