Vivo V11’s AI Camera Creates Perfect Photos with Ease
The Vivo V11 is a new AI-powered addition to the popular V series which comes with an AI camera that helps users capture the picture-perfect moment in any scenario, and AI services to enable smarter and simpler living.
It continues Vivo’s pursuit of the perfect shot. Following the success of the Vivo V9 earlier this year, Vivo has stepped up its development of AI to answer the consumer demand for more powerful photography features which adapt to any scenario.
Taking perfect photos has never been easier with these ground-breaking features that remove many of the typical photography challenges and instantly turn amateurs into near-professional photographers. The Vivo V11’s AI Backlight HDR and AI Low Light Mode use AI algorithms to capture multiple frames for greater detail and combine them to create perfectly exposed photos, even for difficult lighting environments such as sunsets. Adding to the list of AI photography features is AI Scene Recognition, which identifies different objects, elements and scenes, and applies specially customized enhancements to make your photos really “pop”.
For perfect selfies anywhere anytime, the V11 introduces all-new AI Face Shaping technology, with an AI face-modelling algorithm that adds individual treatments to your facial features, creating beautiful yet natural selfies. The improved AI Selfie Lighting feature also offers more lighting effects with AI algorithms that understand how the user’s face interacts three-dimensionally with light. On top of that, AI Portrait Framing makes framing the perfect shot easier than ever, by using artificial intelligence to guide you. It prompts you on how to hold your phone in the optimal position, effortlessly producing perfectly framed portrait shots every time.
Smarter Experience, More Powerful Performance
Beyond photography, the Vivo V11 expands the AI mobile experience across the board with Vivo’s AI assistant Jovi, with features like Jovi Smart Scene, Google Lens and Google Assistant. Jovi Smart Scene makes everyday life easier by recognising user scenarios and acting accordingly, including checking the weather and providing real-time information. Google Assistant helps with everyday situations like map navigation, online shopping, travel arrangements, music, video and even social media, while Google Lens, backed by advanced deep-learning algorithms, lets users search for what they see.
Supporting these incredible AI features, the V11 is powered by the Snapdragon 660AIE processor with 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM, ensuring ultra-smooth performance. The latest Funtouch OS 4.5 (based on Android 8.1) and Vivo’s Jovi AI Engine also work together to allocate CPU and memory resources efficiently to handle multiple complex operations.
Futuristic Immersive Design with the V series’ first In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology
The Vivo V11 features a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 6.41-inch Super AMOLED Halo FullViewTM Display with a 91.27% screen-to-body ratio. The ultra-thin 1.76mm side bezels, paired with the 3D curved body design blends the edges of the phone into the display, creating an immersive viewing experience that fits perfectly in your hand.
The Vivo V11 is the first model in the V series to incorporate In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, which eliminates the visible fingerprint pad to create a seamless design from front to back. The technology first debuted in CES earlier this year and has effectively created bigger screens without compromising on security options. Incorporating this cutting-edge technology in the Vivo V11 is the latest testament to Vivo’s efforts to solve consumer pain points.
The accuracy of Face Access has also been enhanced using infrared light, which now accurately scans 1,024 facial feature points to unlock instantly, even in the dark.
Vivo has created two trendsetting fusion colours inspired by the exciting mysteries of the universe – Starry Night and Nebula. Starry Night’s blend of black and blue and Nebula’s stunning blue and purple hues invoke glistening stars in distant galaxies that heightens the futuristic design of the Vivo V11.
