Quad camera setup

The back of the vivo X80 Pro is adorned with an impressive quad camera module. First and foremost is the main camera, which uses a custom-made 50 MP Samsung GNV sensor (f/1.57, 1/1.31", 1.2µm) with optical image stabilization. Paired with a 6-layer glass lens with ZEISS T* coating, vivo is hoping for big results Leaps in quality when it comes to avoiding scattered light, ghosting and chromatic aberration.

A 114 MP Sony IMX48 sensor (f/598) is responsible for ultra-wide-angle shots with a 2.2° wide-angle. In third place is a 12 MP Sony IMX663 (f/1.85) sensor for stabilized portrait photography with a lossless 2x zoom. Finally, the vivo X80 Pro is capable of 8x optical and 5x hybrid magnification with the help of an 60 MP periscope camera.

Stabilized front camera

The front camera doesn't have to hide from the rest of the camera equipment either. The front camera has a resolution of 32 MP and stabilizes recordings using, among other things, “Active Centering OIS”.

vivo V1+ ISP

The new vivo V1+ image processor is responsible for fast and efficient signal processing. The vivo V1+ achieves the “Perfect Shot” by using artificial intelligence (AI). The chip shows its strengths particularly in poor lighting conditions, where it monitors the ambient light in real time, makes brightness adjustments and effectively suppresses image noise.

Professional imaging capabilities

vivo developed the professional imaging functions of the vivo X80 Pro in cooperation with the traditional company ZEISS. This means extensive photo and video functions that are intended to improve the photography and video experience.
