The vivo V15 Pro Brings Pop-Up Cameras To The Mid-Range Segment


vivo shook the mid-range segment with the V11 with the introduction of an in-display fingerprint scanner—a premium feature—to the mid-range. The V11 is one of the brand’s most impressive offerings to date, and vivo is eager to follow it up with the V15 Pro.

vivo’s 2019 mid-range offering ditches the notch, relocating the front camera to a pop-up mechanism that was first seen in the much more expensive  2018 APEX concept phone and NEX. That pop-up front camera has a 32-megapixel sensor—the highest resolution sensor for a front camera so far.

While the front camera is a pop-up variety, vivo managed to tuck the sensors behind the notchless display they dub as Ultra FullView.

The V15 Pro also joins the current high-megapixel, rear camera bandwagon by using a main rear camera with a 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 sensor. Assisting it is an 8-megapixel f/2.2 wide-angle camera and a 5-megapixel f/2.4 depth sensor.

The V15 Pro gets a few internal upgrades as well, including a Snapdragon 675 processor, more internal storage at 128GB, and a bigger battery at 3700mAh.

  1. I like the timing that Xiaomi introduced their flagship, they already plan ahead of the tech buzz. These was suppose to be great news for the fans of the pop up camera, as these was literally half of what you paid for Apex and Nex.Alas, poor vivo, Its the time of the year that they will be slashing prices again.

  2. I’m not really a big fan of the in display fingerprint scanner as that is not as accurate as putting it at the back. Heck, I’m even fine with face unlock. No need to go oa.
