The Vivo V15 Pro is featuring a similar pop-up camera to last year’s Vivo Nex S. But this time, it will include a 32-megapixel selfie camera. Despite the eye-catching design of the selfie camera on the Vivo Nex S, the actual quality of its photographs isn’t exactly there yet – as we per our review of the phone back in December. With an increase in sensor resolution, that could change with this iteration.
Vivo hasn’t announced exactly what sensor it’s using for the V15 Pro’s camera, but the need for compact hardware suggests it might make use of Samsung’s recently announced 32MP GD1 image sensor, which puts a particular focus on space efficiency. Samsung’s sensor features support for HDR as well as electronic image stabilization. None of this guarantees an improvement in image quality over the original 8-megapixel selfie camera but it won’t hurt either.
Besides the unique selfie camera, the other detail that appears in the trailer is the in-display fingerprint scanner seen on the Nex S will also be featured in the V15 Pro. An official price has yet to be announced. The Vivo V15 Pro is due to be officially announced at an event on February 20th, a few days ahead of the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
