The Vivo V29 Pro maintains the same curved screen as its little brothers, relies on MediaTek in the software and launches a particular sensor for portrait mode photographs


Vivo continues to present its ‘V’ series aimed at the mid-range. It does so in a particular way, having first launched the smallest of the family, the Vivo V29 Lite, and having later followed it Vivo V29 5G as an intermediate model. Now we receive the one It dresses in a higher range without giving up being a mid-rangethe Vivo V29 Pro.

This device comes with a continuous design idea compared to its brothers and with some similar features. However, tries to up its ante on performance and camera as main attractions that, at least on paper, give meaning to the surname ‘Pro’.

A well-known design that does not lack its light ring


Removing the ‘Lite’ model, which is a little further away in terms of the rear, this Vivo V29 Pro looks very similar to the standard ‘V29’. This implies some plastic materials, although with a premium appearance and a bulky camera module in which its light ring stands out as an indication for notifications.

On paper at least, it doesn’t seem like the screen will change in any of the three models either. Thus, we find a 6.78-inch curved AMOLED display with FullHD+ resolution and a refresh rate capable of reaching 120 Hz.

The ‘Pro’ bets everything on MediaTek


Unlike their little brothers who have a Snapdragon 695 and a Snapdragon 778G from Qualcomm, in the Vivo V29 Pro what we find is a Dimensity 8200. It is the MediaTek’s latest commitment to the mid-high range with a 4-nanometer chip that has an eight-core CPU (three for performance and four for energy efficiency), as well as a GPU that powers FullHD+ screens like those of this Vivo.

Entering the field of memories, this terminal can be purchased with a configuration of 8 or 12 GB of RAM, although without specifying the type. For storage you will have to settle for 256 GB without the possibility of increasing via MicroSD card as is increasingly common in the mid-range.

In the absence of knowing what autonomy is like on a day-to-day basis, the Vivo V29 Pro starts with a 4,600 mAh battery, identical capacity to that of the normal model and lower than the ‘Lite’ that has the standardized 5,000 mAh. Fast charging is also shared with the regular model with a power up to 80W via cable.

The selfie will continue to be the most successful


Vivo has a particular commitment to providing quality photographs taken with the front in its mid-ranges. This Vivo V29 Pro does not seem like it will be the exception with its 50 megapixel front sensor which, again, seems to be copied from the Vivo V29, which generally left good results.

At the rear we also opt for a 50 megapixel IMX766 main sensor. A private person accompanies him 12 megapixel sensor aimed at portrait mode and which they have not called a telephoto lens, but which offers a 2x optical zoom. The third sensor is a 8 megapixel wide angle.

Versions and prices of the Vivo V29 Pro


Without knowing if it will land in Europe in the coming weeks or months, the Vivo V29 Pro has already been presented in India and there it can already be reserved at black or blue color. It is offered in the aforementioned territory with the following configurations and prices:

  • Vivo V29 Pro 8+256 GB: 39,999 Indian rupees (about 458.28 euros at the exchange rate)
  • Vivo V29 Pro 12+256 GB: 42,999 Indian rupees (about 492.66 euros at the exchange rate)
