Vivo finally unveiled the all-new V15Pro smartphone in Malaysia.

3. L-R Vivo Brand Ambassador Janna Nick, Vivo Malaysia CEO Mike Xu and Vivo Brand Ambassador Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza launch the V15 Series smartphone

The V15Pro is Vivo’s first model after the NEX to incorporate the industry’s first Elevating Front Camera. It packs upgraded AI technology, bringing consumers a stunning full-screen smartphone with an intelligent personal assistant that understands and anticipates their needs.

Vivo once again is breaking new ground by elevating the mobile experience with this latest affordable V series addition that packs in many high-end technologies that usually feature in only the most premium phones.

In addition to the Elevating Front Camera, the V15Pro includes cutting-edge technologies like its AI Triple Camera that takes pro-photography on the smartphone to another level, plus In-Display Fingerprint Scanning.

“Innovation is one of our core values. Aside from the industry’s first Elevating Front Camera which gave us the ultimate bezel-less display, we are always looking to bring other game-changing features, such as higher-quality cameras and smarter AI services that transport the mobile experience to a new dimension.” Said Mike Xu, Chief Executive Officer of Vivo Malaysia.

“The V15Pro is a clear example of our commitment to bringing advanced products to consumers from all around the world and from all walks of life.”

Elevating Front Camera Makes Possible Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display

Taking inspiration from the groundbreaking NEX, V15Pro carries the same Elevating Front Camera, but better. V15Pro comes with a staggering 32MP Front Camera to capture even better selfies with unrivalled clarity. Vivo has further upgraded the mechanics of the Elevating Front Camera in V15Pro. Design enhancements also ensure the camera is sturdy enough to withstand daily wear-and-tear.

The innovative Elevating Front Camera which first debuted at MWC 2018 as a concept and was featured in the first NEX has effectively created the ideal full-screen display without compromising on photo quality or camera position. With the elimination of the notch, V15Pro now has a staggering 91.64% screen-to-body ratio, creating an unprecedented immersive viewing experience for gaming and video viewing. The Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display on the V15Pro now has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and is 6.39 inches diagonally. Its side and top bezels have been reduced to a razor-thin 1.75mm and 2.2mm respectively.

Capture the Perfect Shot with a Stunning AI Triple Camera

V15Pro comes with AI-embedded solutions that take the mobile photography experience to the next level. With an AI Triple Camera, V15Pro allows consumers to take photos with stunning clarity and a wider perspective.

Users can easily capture professional-grade photos with a snap, thanks to the 48 Million Quad Pixel Sensor , 8MP AI Super Wide-Angle Camera, and 5MP Depth Camera. The “four-in-one pixel” technology in the main rear camera combines four pixels into one large pixel to deliver high-quality 12MP photos even in the dark. The AI Super Wide-Angle Camera can expand up to 120 degrees , capturing more people and fuller landscape shots.

This powerful hardware is complemented with AI to make professional photo-taking a breeze. Borrowing from V11, V15Pro is equipped with AI photography features including AI Face Beauty and AI Portrait Framing. The all-new AI Super Night Mode makes shaky night shots a thing of the past, as consumers can now capture amazing night scenery without a tripod or a DSLR camera.

AI Super Night Mode can instantly take multiple photos at different exposures. It then brilliantly combines them to greatly improve brightness and clarity, meaning night scenes can now be captured with a high level of detail and stability.

With the all-new AI Body Shaping feature, users can now look naturally perfect by adjusting every aspect of the body such as the waist and legs – users will no longer need to use photo-editing applications to look their best.

In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology Brings Out the Best in Sleek Design

V15Pro also incorporates Vivo’s popular In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, which is now in its 5th generation with higher fingerprint pixel density and more sophisticated algorithms allowing consumers to unlock their phones in a more secure and intuitive manner.

Without a physical fingerprint pad, the sleek back cover adopts a unique Spectrum Ripple Design in Topaz Blue or Coral Red, that reflect different shades at different angles, complementing the futuristic innovations housed within V15Pro.
AI-Powered Performance for a Smoother and more Intuitive Experience

Vivo’s AI has made another leap forward, with a more powerful Jovi, the personal assistant that understands your needs and desires better than ever.

The brand-new AI-powered Jovi Image Recognizer has access to almost 100 mainstream e-commerce platforms such as Shopee and Zalora, so it can easily search through databases of over half a billion products for you. With a simple scan, you can now directly locate the product you need and enjoy futuristic AI shopping.

Simply use the new Smart Button on the side of V15Pro to release the power of AI. One press activates the Google Assistant, while two calls the Jovi Image Recognizer into action. It’s easy, intuitive, and fast. V15Pro also has its own customised voice commands developed in partnership with Google to answer to your needs. Whether you want to activate AI Face Beauty, clean up phone memory, or search for food pictures in your album, just utter the command and V15Pro will do it for you immediately.
Avid gamers will love the upgraded Game Mode 5.0. It comes with the new Competition Mode that allocates system resources to prioritise game performance, and Dual-Turbo, which reduces frame-drop by 300% and increases smooth gameplay.

V15Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 675AIE Octa-core processor with 6GB RAM + 128 ROM, ensuring ultra-smooth performance. Consumers can also have peace of mind that their phone will be up and running at all times thanks to Vivo’s latest Dual-Engine Fast Charging technology, which tops the V15Pro up to about a quarter of power in just 15 minutes.

Availability

V15Pro in Topaz Blue and Coral Red will be available for pre-order, which comes with a complimentary gift box in Malaysia from 26 February to 1 March 2019 via its roadshows at select locations, Vivo Concept Stores, authorised dealers and collaboration partners.

For perfect selfies anywhere anytime, V11 introduces all-new AI Face Shaping technology, with an AI face-modelling algorithm that adds individual treatments to your facial features, creating beautiful yet natural selfies. The improved AI Selfie Lighting feature also offers more lighting effects with AI algorithms that understand how the user’s face interacts three-dimensionally with light. On top of that, AI Portrait Framing makes framing the perfect shot easier than ever, by using artificial intelligence to guide you. It prompts you on how to hold your phone in the optimal position, effortlessly producing perfectly framed portrait shots every time.

Smarter Experience, More Powerful Performance

Beyond photography, the V11 expands the AI mobile experience across the board with Vivo’s AI assistant Jovi, with features like:

Jovi Smart Scene-makes everyday life easier by recognizing user scenarios and acting accordingly, including checking the weather and providing real time information.

Google Lens-backed by advanced deep-learning algorithms, lets users search for what they see.

Google Assistant-helps with everyday situations like map navigation, online shopping, travel arrangements, music, video and even social media

Supporting these incredible AI features, V11 is powered by the Snapdragon 660AIE processor with 6GB RAM + 128 ROM, ensuring ultra-smooth performance. The latest Funtouch OS 4.5 (based on Android 8.1) and Vivo’s Jovi AI Engine also work together to allocate CPU and memory resources efficiently to handle multiple complex operations.

Futuristic Immersive Design with the V series’ first In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology

The V11 features a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 6.41-inch Super AMOLED Halo FullView™ Display with a 91.27% screen-to-body ratio. The ultra-thin 1.76mm side bezels, paired with the 3D curved body design blends the edges of the phone into the display, creating an immersive viewing experience that fits perfectly in your hand.

V11 is the first model in the V series to incorporate In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, which eliminates the visible fingerprint pad to create a seamless design from front to back. The technology first debuted in CES earlier this year and has effectively created bigger screens without compromising on security options. Incorporating this cutting-edge technology in V11 is the latest testament to Vivo’s efforts to solve consumer pain points.

The accuracy of Face Access has also been enhanced using infrared light, which now accurately scans 1,024 facial feature points to unlock instantly, even in the dark.

Vivo has created two trendsetting fusion colors inspired by the exciting mysteries of the universe – Starry Night and Nebula. Starry Night’s blend of black and blue and Nubula’s stunning blue and purple hues invoke glistening stars in distant galaxies that heightens the futuristic design of V11.

Introducing Lu Han – Vivo’s New Brand Ambassador

In its continuous efforts to connect and engage with its customers, Vivo is adding popular singer and actor Lu Han to its star-studded line-up of brand ambassadors. Lu, also known as Luhan, was a member of the South Korean-Chinese boy group EXO and EXO-M and the lead actor for the popular Chinese television series ‘Fighter of the Destiny’. He will be gracing most of Vivo’s marketing and communication collaterals, and engaging Vivo customers and fans via online initiatives alongside Janna Nick, Alvin Chong and Joyce Chu.

Availability

V11 and V11i in Starry Night and Nebula fusion colours will be available in Malaysia on 15 September (V11) and 21 September (V11i) at all vivo concept stores and authorised resellers nationwide, as well as selected e-commerce platforms. The V11 is priced at RM1,699 whereas the V11i at RM1,299.
