Vivo Z1 Pro design

The term “Selfie” got christened in the Oxford lexicon during the early 21st Century. Owing to its presence in pop culture, Vivo phones adopted selfie as a major highlight. Thus forth the brand mastered perfect selfie phones. With the Vivo Z1 Pro, it aims to augment your selfie game with an in-display front camera.

The front shooter resides in a punch-hole cutout on the screen. Thanks to Vivo’s super black plated technology, the camera subtly blends to the beautiful fascia. So, beyond an impeccable selfie shooter, the camera adds to the Z1 Pro’s visual marvel.

vivo Z1Pro: 32 Megapixel Selfie

vivo Z1Pro cranks up the sensor resolution to 32-megapixels. Unlike most other 32MP cameras we see today, the Z1Pro does not output 8MP binned selfies. So yeah, you get to capture the beauty without losing any details. The selfie camera has an f/2.0 aperture that can draw in ample light. As for videos, you can shoot 1080p Full HD footage at 30fps.

Coming to the software side, you get a feature-rich camera app that’s really simple to navigate. The camera software integrates AI Smarts and can thus analyze scenes and subjects, and optimize camera settings accordingly. The AI enhancements work wonderfully without going overboard.

In less-than-ideal indoor lighting conditions, the advantages of smart software become apparent. The vivo Z1Pro can judge scenes perfectly and optimizes skin tones artistically and applies just the right amount of sharpening to the image subject. This results in minimal noise without any loss of detail.

Night Selfies

Night scenes are where any average camera would fumble. The Z1Pro, however, brilliantly differentiates between different colors in the backdrop and also manages to make the subject stand out.

Portrait selfies with lighting effects

Another area where the Z1Pro camera shines is with portraits. Unlike on the rear, there is no dedicated secondary camera for depth mapping, but 32MP and the AI-enabled software work magically, resulting in crisp portrait shots. The edge detection in portrait selfies is awesome and bokeh is well balanced. Users also get the option to add different lighting effects.
