The largest mobile phone manufacturers in the world have focused part of their R&D research on the photographic section , especially when presenting new high-end models. The firm vivo is a good example of this, and has been showing new developments in this area since long before arriving in Spain .
Theirs is the first phone with a gimbal , for example, and now they have announced the new features that we will see in future models, which will arrive in the coming months. In this case they have focused on improvements related to photography, from new cameras to better image coprocessors, such as the V3 chip with 6 nm technology that incorporates AI-ISP technology that allows a blur similar to that of 4K cinema. , automatic focus detection and changes, etc.
For these new functions and new hardware they have partnered with companies in the sector, such as ZEISS and Sony, with which the company has had a close relationship for many years. In fact, the software on many of their phones has been designed to emulate the legendary ZEISS lenses.
One of the main distinctions between high-end models and mid-range models is the camera. But not so much the main one, but the presence of a good telephoto lens. The vivo X Series are a good example of this. On this occasion the company has announced a new optical zoom with better resolution and quality.
Specifically, the alliance with ZEISS has led to the development of a periscopic zoom with “Vario-Apo-Sonnar” quality . We will have to wait to see how this translates to the quality of the images, but ZEISS has stood out above all in portraits. In particular, the focus of the image has been improved, as well as the blurring of the background.
And here there is also news. vivo’s new Origin Imaging Engine (VOIE) uses three software modules to create better portraits . They are the Color Restoration Engine, Ultra HD Engine and Accelerated Computing Engine. The algorithms responsible for displaying colors in night or low-light shots have also been improved.
One of the main differences between Vivo mobile phones and their competitors is the lower amount of reflections in the photos they take . This is thanks to ZEISS T-Coating , a technology that prepares the lenses in front of the sensor so that they do not create aberrations or flares.
In this new generation the amount of reflections has been reduced by half, a substantial change that will help the photos look much closer to those taken with professional cameras.
