vivo has launched the X80 Pro, bringing users the next level of premium mobile experience with new cinematic photography features in collaboration with ZEISS. The new flagship smartphone is now available in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman.
Building on the vivo X series’ professional mobile photography foundations, the X80 series will enhance user experience in photography and videography with its artistic cinematic mode, flagship performance, and technological innovations.
“The X80 series demonstrates vivo’s constant pursuit of user-oriented innovation and premium mobile imaging technology. In successive collaboration with ZEISS, a global leader in optics and opto-electronics, we are once again delivering excellent experiences to users who can capture memories and create quality photographs and videos with more dynamics and perspectives,” said Spark Ni, senior vice president and CMO of vivo.
vivo’s X80 Pro features extensive upgrades, and for the first time, delivers cinematic style video modes in collaboration with ZEISS. The new ZEISS Cinematic Video Bokeh feature creates oval bokeh in film-standard 2.39:1 aspect ratio, creating a widescreen cinematic lens effect that can capture highly aesthetic and expressive videos.
Moreover, new effects have been added to the ZEISS Superb Portrait feature, such as ZEISS Cinematic Style Bokeh, enabling users to recreate classic Hollywood aesthetics by adding a film-like bokeh effect with a 2.39:1 widescreen aspect ratio combined with artistic long oval bokeh. The overall effects can also be enhanced with vivo’s cinematic lens simulation algorithm and a dual-camera depth-of-field technology that combines flare rendering and processing. By recognizing the highlight points, the brightest point in the picture is identified and artistic blue light trails can be created, similar to the blue streak in cinema lenses.
vivo continues to maintain its outstanding night scene effects in conjunction with the ZEISS Superb Night Camera. With upgraded features such as Pure Night View, the X80 Pro is able to capture city night scenes while retaining the original look and feel of the scene. In addition, the X80 Pro supports XDR Photo that can improve clarity for backlit images and improve tones that better reflect what the human eyes can see.
vivo’s X80 Pro also includes ZEISS Natural Color 2.0 aided by the series’ first AI Perception Engine to improve color accuracy and facilitate color changing and brightness during a shoot.
The X80 Pro has a 32 MP front camera and a rear four-camera system with a 50 MP ultra-sensing camera with GNV sensor and optical image stabilization, a 48 MP wide-angle camera, a 12 MP gimbal portrait camera, and an 8 MP periscope camera.
Camera panning is a new feature that further enhances this flagship series’ dynamic capabilities with its portrait motion tracking technology, which can reduce motion blur caused by shaky hands.
The X80 Pro is configured with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, for efficient performance without straining battery usage. It is equipped with enhanced privacy controls and features. Using the Screen Pinning feature, users can freeze the screen when they let others use the phone.
Equipped with a large X-Axis linear motor and supported by vivo’s self-developed vibration algorithm that allows for quiet but powerful scene-based vibration, the X80 Pro introduces new upgrades enabling enjoyable and immersive gaming experiences.
The smartphone is available in Cosmic Black, representing the broad and profound nature of the night sky, along with the vitality and the everlasting power of the universe.
The X80 Pro (12+256G) is priced at SR3,999 ($1,065) in the Kingdom.
