This year we’ve seen major smartphone brands release phones with AI technology. With the surge of AI, smartphone processes can be customized according to a user’s preferences. Vivo has made great use of this technology, making it a true leader in the push for Vivo AI-powered smartphones.
Last March, Vivo released the Vivo V9 equipped with a 24-megapixel AI Selfie Camera. It is further enhanced with the AI Face Beauty that banks on a database of almost one million facial images from all over the world to accurately detect gender, age, skin tone, texture, and lighting environment for clearer selfies. The AI Face Beauty works like every user’s personal makeup artist. Complementing Vivo V9’s AI Face Beauty is the AI Selfie Lighting. The V9’s algorithm allows users to choose from a range of light effects such as Natural Light, Studio Light, Stereo Light, and Monochrome Background to create well-lit pictures.
Vivo then surprised its Filipino patrons with the release of the pioneering Vivo X21 with In-Display Fingerprint Scanner in June. One of its notable AI features is the AI Scene Recognition. It goes beyond the night, sports, vibration or backlit scenarios. It can also detect and identify 18 tags and 140 scenarios such as portraits, food, and plants. It is activated using Vivo AI algorithm based on a large database of almost one million photos. Through this database, the Vivo X21 can detect different scenarios and adjust settings such as saturation, sharpness, and brightness.
Another product with Vivo AI technology is the Vivo NEX equipped with the world’s first 8MP Elevating Front Camera, the bezel-less Ultra FullView Display with a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio, and the In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. Aside from these impressive hardware specs, the Vivo NEX also dedicated a specific button that launches the Google Assistant to access a wide array of AI services such as map navigation and online shopping. It also equipped with the Google lens with deep learning algorithms to identify objects and landmarks as well as increase Optical Character Recognition accuracy.
These developments were a product of intensive research. Vivo has research centers in San Diego, United States and Shenzhen, Dongguan, Nanjing, Hangzhou, and Beijing in China that ensure that the smartphone brand keep up with consumers’ needs. These only prove Vivo’s commitment to innovation with the consumers at the forefront. With Vivo’s well-thought-out inclusion of AI in its smartphones, the future has never looked more exciting. Where will Vivo take its AI development next? I can’t wait to see.
