VIVO recently unveiled its all-new Vivo V11 and V11i smartphones. This new AI-powered addition to the popular V series comes with an AI camera that helps users capture picture-perfect moments in any scenario, as well as AI services to enable smarter and simpler living.
Vivo’s V11 features key design breakthroughs, with the new Halo FullView™ Display paired with Starry Night and Nebula fusion colours – all enclosed within a curved 3D body to provide a seamless and immersive user experience.
The V11 is the first in the V series to incorporate In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, continuing Vivo’s technology leadership in biometric security, while maintaining a sleek and stylish design.
“Innovating with consumers in mind is our priority. We are excited to introduce the AI-powered V11 to create a more intuitive and personal mobile experience for our users,” said Vivo Malaysia chief executive officer Mike Xu.
“With that in mind, we have made the perfect shot much easier to take with our AI camera, added smarter AI services, and introduced our industry-leading In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology to the V series for the first time. We will strive to bring trend-setting innovations and the best experience to more consumers around the world.”
AI camera captures perfect photos
The V11 continues Vivo’s pursuit of the perfect shot. Following the success of the V9 earlier this year, Vivo has stepped up its development of AI to answer consumer demand for more powerful photography features which adapt to any scenario.
V11 features a 12MP + 5MP dual rear camera combination with a large f/1.8 aperture and 1.28μm pixels, as well as a 25MP front camera. The 12MP rear camera boasts Dual Pixel Sensors with 24 million photosensitive units for higher light sensitivity and DSLR-standard Dual-Pixel Autofocus technology that can lock focus in just 0.03 seconds.
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.
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 customised enhancements to make your photos really “pop”.
For perfect selfies anywhere, anytime, V11 introduces the 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, powerful performance
Beyond photography, the 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, V11 is powered by the Snapdragon 660AIE processor with 6GB RAM + 128 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.
First in-display fingerprint scanning technology
The V11 features a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 6.41-inch Super AMOLED Halo FullView™ Display with a 91.27% screen-to-body ratio. The ultra-thin 1.76mm side bezels, paired with the 3D curved body design, blend the edges of the phone into the display, creating an immersive viewing experience that fits perfectly in your hand.
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 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 heighten the futuristic design of V11.
Vivo V11 is equipped with Dual Engine Fast Charging which brings a faster charging experience – at twice the speed and half the time. You may use any compatible industry standard USB cable to charge the V11.
Dual engine fast charging technology makes use of dual charging chips as well as dual charging circuits to speed up the rate of charging of the device.
V11 brings robust protection during charging, its parallel connection of the two charging chips along with nine different safeguarding features, provide the utmost in safety.
