At last, face-to-face presentations are back, those that allow us journalists to see each other’s faces directly, without screens in between, exchange impressions among us but, above all, talk face-to-face with brands and ‘touch’ the new ones. devices. The truth is that he missed …
With that said, let’s get down to business. The Chinese firm Vivo has announced the arrival of two identical ‘smartphones’, with the only difference that one is 5G and the other does not support fast networks. The device is called Live S21, a full-fledged mid-range, but with a really outstanding feature: a 44-megapixel front camera, double flash and double stabilizer, (optical and electronic, EIS and OÍS), specially designed for high-quality selfies and self-videos. . In fact, the camera is capable of recording in 4K without having to give up double stabilization, as it happens in other brands, which allows having a selfie camera with the features of a main one.
The display, 6.44-inch AMOLED, has a Full HD + resolution (2044 x 1080 pixels) and comes with a 90 Hz refresh rate, ideal for displaying clear details even in images with fast-moving subjects. It is a very thin mobile (7.2 mm), and light (175 g), with a hole in the front for the selfie camera (and flashes). The fingerprint reader is also under the screen.
The chosen processor is a Mediatek Dimensity 800U, which, without being outstanding, it does include 5G and meets the main needs increasingly demanding hardware and software. Thus, the ‘apps’ will open and run without problem, and intelligent functions, especially those of its cameras, are more than guaranteed.
The device has 8GB RAM chip and 128GB for storage. An exclusive Vivo technology allows, in case of need, that the mobile uses up to 3 GB of storage memory as if it were RAM memory, so that we will never be short of power and speed. The battery, meanwhile, is 4000 milliamps, and it comes equipped with a 33W fast charging system, capable of charging the phone up to 60 percent in about 30 minutes.
Bet on the front camera
The V range, always cared for by Vivo, usually brings new features in the front camera, and this time it was not going to be less. Its 44 megapixel sensor is capable of capturing high-quality photos, well lit by dual flash and with the help of the double stabilizer. AI improves night photos, reducing noise, increasing brightness and detail. The AI also allows automatic eye focus, which guarantees us always focused selfies, even in the middle of the night.
At the rear, we have a 64 megapixel main sensor, accompanied by an 8 megapixel wide angle and a 2 megapixel macro sensor that allows you to photograph objects up to 4 CM away. A configuration, then, quite common in the mid-range. The main sensor, like the front camera, has a double stabilizer and a night mode improved by AI. Regarding the price, the Vivo V21 will be available this month, for 399 euros.
