Vivo V29 – Mobile photography at its best

Vivo has recently unveiled its latest offering, the Vivo V29 Pro, bringing the V29 series to a total of four smartphones. 

One of the highlighted features of the Vivo V29 Pro is its 2x portrait camera, something not seen before in the V-smartphone series.  Its triple-camera setup combines a 50Mp main sensor with a 12Mp telephoto sensor with PDAF and 2x optical zoom.  Additionally, this Sony IMX663 sensor has “all-pixel dual-core” autofocus, helping it focus in the dark. The third camera is an 8MP ultra-wide sensor.

As with all Vivo V-series smartphones, the selfie camera is really impressive too.  This camera is a 50Mp wide-angle module with both autofocus and Eye AF, ensuring that faces are always kept in focus.

The ring-shaped LED flash, termed “The Smart Aura Light” is now 36% brighter and this LED flash adjusts its colour temperature in line with ambient light.

The Vivo V29 Pro also features a large and immersive 6,78” AMOLED display with a resolution of 1260x2800 pixels, a fast refresh rate of 120Hz, a peak brightness of 1300 nits and PWM dimming, delivering an engaging and enjoyable viewing experience.

This device is sleek and slender, with a thickness of 7,46mm.  Both the front and back are constructed of glass, giving it a decidedly premium look and feel.  Vivo V29 Pro is available in a beautiful Himalayan Blue variant that uses nano-scale magnetic particles to create a glitter effect against a light blue background, mirroring the look and feel of the cloudy mountains of the Himalayas.  The other variant is a regular Space Black.

The Vivo V29 Pro is powered by the Dimensity 8200 chipset, ensuring seamless performance and efficient multitasking.  This upgraded chipset paired with the Vivo V29 Pro’s generous 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage provides a smooth and lag-free experience, no matter how demanding the task.

The Vivo V29 Pro is equipped with a large 4600mAh battery that supports 80W fast charging, advertised to charge to 50% in 18 minutes.
