vivo ushers in a new era of portrait photography with the slim and premium-designed V30

vivo, a global leading technology company, today unveiled vivo V30, the best-in-class flagship with upgraded Aura Light Portrait and premium design to its stylish V series. The latest V30 sports an integrated 120 Hz 3D Curved Screen to showcase its premium design and comes in outstanding new colour options to represent users' unique styles.

"V series has always been synonymous with a light and simple aesthetic, a characteristic that is amplified with vivo's groundbreaking innovations in both portrait photography and design. We have upgraded the Aura Light Portrait feature, bringing a truly powerful tool to help users easily capture stunning portraits, even in challenging low-light night conditions." said vivo Kenya CEO Mr Sean Wu.

vivo V30 is committed to empowering users to seize and immortalise every precious moment of their lives with its advanced imaging capabilities. In order to capture delight in every portrait, V30 sports an upgraded Aura Light feature that provides a light-emitting area that is 19 times larger and 50 times softer than a standard flash.

The Smart Color Temperature Adjustment feature enables the device to intelligently identify and adjust the colour temperature based on the subject's surroundings, offering a broader colour temperature range compared with previous iterations. It also supports Distance-Sensitive Lighting that can detect the subject's distance in real-time with centimetre-level precision to adjust the Aura Light brightness. When the subject is closer, the light is softer and more balanced, and the light is brighter when the subject is farther away, allowing users to capture perfectly-lit portraits in a breath.

In addition, the 50 MP AF Ultra Wide-Angle Camera features Auto Focus and 119° wide angle, allowing users to effortlessly capture expansive landscapes or special group photo moments without missing a beat. It's V series' first 50 MP Ultra Wide-Angle Camera equipped with Auto Focus and boasts 6.25 times the pixel count of the more common 8 MP wide-angle camera. What's more, the camera also features AI Group Portrait for group photos, ensuring the clarity of up to 30 people in the portrait. V30 also comes with VCS True Colour Main Camera, the vivo-exclusive Camera-Bionic Spectrum (VCS) technology enables the camera's vision to be closer to that of the human eye. This improves image clarity by 25% and colour reproduction by 15% compared to the previous generation.

Beyond its impressive photography prowess, the unique exterior design of vivo V30 underscores vivo's dedication to harmonising style and innovation. With a comfortable 3D Curved Screen design for improved grip, V30 is easy to hold for extended periods of time. It also features a 1.5K Ultra Clear Sunlight AMOLED Display and a 120 Hz refresh rate, which ensures peak smoothness. With a peak local brightness of 2800 nits and a maximum overall brightness of 1200 nits, it offers ultimate viewing experience, even under the brightest sunlight. To incorporate a large-capacity 5000 mAh (TYP) battery into the slim frame, the 7.45 mm V30 employs an industry-leading One-Piece Encapsulation Technique, which involves reconfiguring the battery casing to make it thinner.

V30 debuts new Color, Material, and Finish (CMF) innovations that are inspired by nature. The V30 comes in Peacock Green and a classic Noble Black shade made with Fluorite AG Glass.

Coupled with the enhanced Extended RAM technology and Qualcomm Snapdragon® 7 Gen 3, V30 delivers smooth and uninterrupted performance for an exceptional multitasking experience. In terms of battery technology, the 5000 mAh (TYP) battery can be fully charged in just 48 minutes, owing to the 80W FlashCharge. For daily use, V30 has doubled its battery lifespan. Even after 1600 charge-discharge cycles, the battery capacity remains above 80%, maintaining a battery lifespan of four years.

vivo V30 is a best-in-class flagship that truly combines innovation with elegance, showcasing an ultra-slim profile, a range of stunning colors and cutting-edge features. It is truly a visual delight that captivates at first glance.

The V30 will be available country wide from the 22nd April retailing at 64,999 Ksh.
