The Vivo V15 Pro has arrived! We spoke about the teased Vivo smartphone a few weeks ago, we’ve also teased its hands-on. The only thing it has not done at the time then was be officially launched for the Malaysian market.
Today though is the day that changes. The Vivo V15 Pro has finally arrived.
To recap, the Vivo V15 Pro packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 System on a Chip (SoC) with a dedicated Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) chip. That processor is paired to a 6GB RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. The SoC powers a FunTouch OS 9.0 on top of the latest Android 9.0 Pie and kept running through the day with a 3,700mAh Fast Charging battery.
Protecting the internals is a glass and aluminium body housing a 6.39-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Ultra FullView display. Ultra FullView because there is no ugly notches to be found anywhere on the display of this thing. It is a true edge-to-edge display this one. That is mostly thanks to the fact that most of the essential sensors are hidden under the display.
The front-facing camera cannot be hidden behind the display without rendering it useless though. That is why they fitted their famous elevating pop-up mechanism first seen on the Vivo NEX. That mechanism houses a32-Megapixel camera that pops-up when needed and stows away neatly to the body when you do not need it.
If you try to find the fingerprint sensor around the smartphone, you will not actually find it. It does have one though, we are not pulling your legs. The Vivo V15 Pro’s fingerprint sensor is also hidden underthe gorgeous display to keep the rest of the body neat and tidy.
The glass back is kept very neat and flush interrupted only by the bulge that is the rear cameras. There are three lenses this time instead of the usual two. The Vivo V15 Pro packs one 48-Megapixel main wide-angle shooter paired to a 5-Megapixel Depth sensor and another 8-Megapixel Super Wide-Angle camera. These cameras are where the benefits of the A.I. chips become quite obvious though with A.I. Beauty and A.I. Slimming mode. You need not go for a complete makeover or diet anymore with the Vivo V15 Pro (do not listen to us lazy bums though).
