Perfect Shot with AI Photography

The V9 24MP front camera and 16MP+5MP dual rear camera are both equipped with the new AI-powered camera functions. Based on in-depth research, powerful software and machine learning, Vivo uses AI to help consumers pursue a great photo that truly represents their beauty.

AI Face Beauty identifies users’ age, sex, skin tone and texture, as well as the surrounding lighting environment. A comprehensive database of almost one million facial images from around the world has been used to train the AI algorithm.
