Vivo V9 is now officially launched in Pakistan, it is the successor of Vivo V7 that made its debut in Pakistan late last year, by the Chinese company. And our first impressions on the phone lead us to think that Vivo has obviously copied Apple but in a very decent or clever way one can imagine.
The company has held the launch of its all-new V9 smartphone at Pearl Continental Hotel Lahore; featuring a FullViewTM Display and 90% screen-to-body ratio that delivers AI-powered perfect shots. The event was attended by many people from different walks of life, including Vivo’s partners, esteemed media, social media influencers and key people from fashion industry attended this event.
The major highlights of the smartphone are its AI-powered dual rear cameras, Face Access feature and FullView Display.
Vivo V9 is designed to be an ultimate sleek and stylish smartphone that can always take the “perfect shot” and provide the “perfect view” through the power of AI. Vivo’s V9 uses advanced machine learning to provide a unique AI-powered mobile experience that enhances multiple features such as AI Face Beauty, AI Smart Engine and AI Selfie Lighting.
It can then apply enhancements in line with the preferences of local users. Other AI photography features include the new AI Selfie Lighting, that uses a new algorithm to transform the original 2D photo into a 3D model and then processes the light authentically and artistically, helping users create their own masterpieces.
AI-Optimized Mobile Experience
Beyond photography, the V9’s AI also ensures the best performance by optimizing and supporting the phone’s operations with the AI Smart Engine which prioritizes system resources according to user habits.
Vivo has improved on the previous generation’s facial unlocking technology with AI Face Access, which detects the reflection of natural skin and the subtle movements of the face to further reduce the possibility of unlocking when shown photos or videos instead of a person’s real face.
Furthermore, V9’s AI Attention Sensing also recognizes when you’re looking at the phones to keep disruptions to a minimum by automatically reducing the volume of message alerts, incoming calls, and alarms.
Mr. Eric Kong, CEO of Vivo Pakistan.
“V9 represents our understanding of consumer’s need for their mobile camera to automatically create the ‘perfect shot’ in any scenario. We are excited to introduce the V9’s AI power to young consumers in Pakistan, With AI playing a key role, we are confident that we can inspire and empower more consumers globally to express themselves by making the ‘perfect shot’ easier than ever to take, while the FullViewTM display provides consumers with the ‘perfect view’ to experience their photographic moments of self-expression”
