Powerful Imaging Specs, a Big Leap Forward
This version of the vivo ZEISS co-engineered imaging system has been refined over more than two years to provide an unparalleled experience through a combination of hardware enhancements and software advancements.
It has increased light sensitivity, aperture, natural color processing, and stabilization for a straightforward point-and-shoot camera experience. The X90 and X90 Pro have triple rear camera systems with ZEISS T* Coating certification.
With a 50MP ZEISS 1-inch Main Camera, a 50MP Portrait Camera with a Large Sensor, and a 12MP Wide-Angle Camera, the X90 Pro exceeds the limits of smartphone imaging. The X90 Pro’s main shooter employs a 1-inch IMX989 sensor, the industry’s biggest to date.
When compared to comparable models with a 1-inch sensor, the X90 Pro’s f/1.75 big aperture and 3.2 m large pixel (4-in-1) size improve light intake per pixel, resulting in brighter, purer night photographs. When compared to the GNV sensor used in the preceding X generation, the new IMX989 sensor has a 77% larger photosensitive surface and a 43% larger light intake capacity.
The IMX758 sensor allows the 50MP Portrait Camera’s ultra-sensing portrait lens to achieve an aperture of f/1.6. Even in low light, it produces delicately detailed portraits thanks to the stabilization system, a unique large-aperture lens, and 4-in-1 sensor technology.
vivo’s independent optical image stabilization (OIS) technology, which is included in the X90 Pro, enables more intelligent and accurate stabilization correction than traditional OIS. Plus, it features the Active Centering OIS System, which dramatically lessens motion blur and smears between frames.
Meanwhile, the 50MP VCS True Color Main Camera, 12MP Professional Portrait Camera, and 12MP Wide-Angle Camera are all impressive features of the X90. The VCS True Color Main Camera enhances native picture colors, ensures color consistency, and reduces noise by optimizing the sensor spectrum to better produce the desired RGB colors.
Pro-level Camera Features to Capture Life’s Moments, Day or Night
The new X90 series is the ideal stargazing companion thanks to its upgraded sensors, vivo’s exclusive V2 imaging chip, in-house developed AI algorithms and ZEISS Optics with T* Coating. These features work together to significantly increase the capabilities of night photography and astrophotography. Also, new tools for creating unique, top-notch content are introduced.
With vivo’s Super Night Video 3.0 algorithm, which supports extraordinary photosensitivity in very dark conditions, 4K Ultra-Sensing Night Video is now made simple. Likewise, the V2 chip’s noise reduction system maintains clarity even at high ISO settings.
The redesigned Handheld Astro mode on the X90 Pro allows you to quickly and easily take clearer photos of the starry sky without the use of a tripod. The device’s improved light sensitivity, better-stabilizing technology, and new AI PD Extreme Night focus technology, which increases focus accuracy, all enable this feature.
Moreover, the Super Moon mode, available on both the X90 and X90 Pro, combines the hardware enhancements with the new Super Night 3.0 algorithm to enable capturing landscape moon images.
After the sun has set, during the “blue hour,” vivo’s sky-segmentation technology enhances the blue-tone hues, and its Double Exposure algorithm combines the moon and the terrain into one spectacular shot.
AI Night View aims to solve the issue of obtaining the ideal tone in nighttime images. AI Night View, which uses AI network learning, can capture up to 10 frames in RAW while preserving a wide dynamic range.
It segments images to precisely control the tone and hue of each segment after identifying objects in nighttime scenes like the sky and people’s faces. For softer color transitions, it processes HDR tones with up to 22 bits of color depth.
In addition, the new X90 series’ ZEISS Natural Color 2.0 has been extensively calibrated to display colors with greater authenticity and precision, producing pictures that are more like what can be seen with the naked eye.
To ensure that the captured colors are not impacted by the display, a new ZEISS Natural Color Display has been introduced to the screen color style choices for the first time. Every vivo X90 and X90 Pro display is now calibrated to ensure that the color rendition is close to perfect.
Zero-Shutter-Lag Motion Snapshot is another powerful creation feature that enables recording motion easier than ever before. Because of the zero-second delay, what you see is what you receive in critical times, even in poor light. The combination of the high-speed shutter and motion recognition technology in Sports mode and Night Sports mode may rapidly freeze frames, keeping any fast-moving subject clear.
The series also introduces brand-new creative effects that vivo and ZEISS collaboratively created. The flare effect found in many vintage films is recreated by the new ZEISS Cine-flare Portrait style. The ZEISS Miniature Effect allows users to record distinctive miniature sceneries. This effect creates the illusion of a smaller scene without the need for post-editing by simply keeping a small portion of a landscape photograph sharp.
