Vivo V20 launched with a 44MP Eye Autofocus selfie camera
In May this year, the Vivo V19 launched in the Indian market at a starting price of Rs 27,990 & at that price, the phone offered Snapdragon 712, an E3 AMOLED panel, 33W Fast Charging, & a 48 Megapixel Quad camera setup. Well, today, the Vivo V20 launched in India & for a starting price of Rs 24,990, the device offers the Snapdragon 720G SOC, an AMOLED panel, a 44 Megapixel selfie camera & a 64 Megapixel triple camera setup.
What Is Eye AF?
The Vivo V20 comes with Eye Auto Focus (AF), which is a cool feature that tracks eye movements, ensuring that your subject is in constant focus despite rapid movements. Just imagine you’re shooting a selfie with your little one. Smartphones without this feature are unable to properly track the movements of a child or any other subject, causing blurred shots. However, with Eye AF, the system focuses on the eyes of your toddle which results in a constant focus. Thus, say goodbye to blurred photos and videos.
What Is The Difference Between Eye AF And Face AF?
Many smartphones come with a face sensor or face autofocus feature. While these smartphones employ fixed focus, their capabilities are quite limited and you still end up having blurred images. It is because their systems do not have the ability to choose the subject to focus on. With Face Autofocus, this feature tracks facial movements to ensure that the subject remains in focus during shots even if it’s moving.
On the other hand, the Eye AF feature is a more reliable solution because it locks the focus of the subject’s eye, even with back-and-forth movements out of the frame. It’s flexibly programmed, keeping your subject in constant focus whenever you’re clicking a photo or shooting a video. The Face AF system tracks the face’s T-bone, which isn’t a good solution for getting accurate results. Eye AF accurately follows the eyes of the subject, keeping your subject in focus. That is why Eye AF is a must-have feature for every flagship smartphone.
The main USP of this phone is the front camera since there is a 44 Megapixel shooter that is capable of 4K video recording. This selfie camera features Eye Autofocus, so it tracks the subject’s eyes for a better focus. This can be used not only while shooting still images but also while recording videos.
Some other features of the 44MP selfie camera include Dual-View Video, Slo-Mo Selfie videos, Steadiface Selfie videos, Super Night Selfie 2.0, Multi-Style portrait etc.
The selfie camera is placed in a U-shaped notch & the display size is 6.44-inches. It is an AMOLED panel with Full-HD+ resolution with a fingerprint scanner placed under it.
Design-wise, there is an Anti-Glare Matte Glass back which give this phone a premium feel in hand. The phone is just 7.38mm thick (excluding the camera module) & weighs around 171 grams. The 3.5mm headphone jack is placed on the bottom alongside the USB Type-C port & the speaker grill.
Under the hood, there is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SOC so, in terms of the performance, there isn’t anything crazy here since you get the same SOC in phones priced as low as Rs 13,000. There is 8GB RAM & either 128GB or 256GB internal storage.
The triple camera setup on the rear includes a primary 64 Megapixel sensor with f/1.89 aperture lens, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter & a third 2 Megapixel Monochrome sensor.
Vivo V20 has a 4,000mAh battery & supports 33W Fast Charging via the Type-C port. FuntouchOS 11 based on Android 11 runs out of the box.
Vivo V20 comes in three colors named Midnight Jazz ,Moonlight Sonata & Sunset Melody. In India, the 8GB + 128GB variant is priced at Rs 24,990 whereas the 8GB + 256GB variant at Rs 27,990.
