Taking a closer look at the innovative features:

Delightful Selfies in Every Scenario

V20’s industry leading 44MP Eye Autofocus front camera allows users to unlock a new world of selfie capabilities. The front camera features a unique and segment-first Eye Autofocus (AF) advanced algorithm to track and focus on the eye of the subject irrespective of movement. Thanks to the unique Eye-Detection algorithm, the front camera of the V20 keeps the subject in sharp focus by automatically locking onto your eyes, giving unmatched clarity to your videos and stills.

Thanks to the 44 MP front camera, the V20 features an industry-leading flagship sensor that has 37.5% more pixels than a standard 32MP sensor. Quality is further enhanced through the Steadiface Selfie Video feature, which stabilizes the subject while shooting videos through an advanced algorithm.

The V20 front camera is also packed with a host of additional features—Art Portrait videos, Slo-Mo Selfie Video, 4K Selfie Video, and Super Night Selfie 2.0 with Aura Screen light—that enhance selfie quality and empower users to record crystal clear selfie videos and images. Irrespective of the light conditions.

Dual View Video

Pairing options include: front + rear main camera; front camera + rear wide-angle camera; or main rear camera + wide-angle rear camera.

Expand Your Creative Pursuit with Spectacular Shots

The V20 is equipped with a triple rear camera setup that houses an industry-leading 64MP primary camera, coupled with an incredibly versatile 8 MP triple-purpose lens delivering Super Wide-Angle, Super macro and Bokeh. The 2MP Mono lens provides outstanding contrast and sharpness to all your images.

The primary rear camera – with a staggering 64MP – reveals vibrant details that remain clear even after zooming. The V20s macro lens lets you take extreme close shots, letting you get as close as 2.5 cm from the subject.  The same lens also can provide a 120º wide angle** for a wider field of view making sure nothing is left out of frame. The Super Night Mode adds untapped perspectives, while specialized filters add panache to the images. The new Tripod Night Mode increases stability and exposure to make the night shots look flawless.

The Motion Auto Focus helps you in maintaining sharp, continuous focus even when you are on the move. Move closer quickly or drift away, Smart Zoom takes over – panning in and out smoothly – to keep you in the centre of the frame. The Smart Zoom on the V20 locks on to the subject and automatically keeps zooming in/zooming out in sync (with the subject), making sure that subject is always in focus.

Style that Delights

The V20 also sports an ultra-slim and light design, measuring 7.38mm* thin and weighing only 171grams. Equipped with a 16.37cm (6.44 inch) AMOLED FHD+ Halo Full View Display in the front, the V20 houses the R3 camera matrix module in the rear. The AG Matte Glass finish adds subtle luxury to the aesthetic and also improves overall ergonomics. Chemical etching further refines the surface, making it resistant to scratches. Finally, the anti-fingerprint coating protects the phone from fingerprint smears.

Bigger Battery and Fast Charging

The vivo V20 comes with a 33W FlashCharge inside the box that can replenish your battery to 65% before you finish your tea break (30 minutes**). Thanks to the large capacity 4,000mAh (TYP) battery, you will have ample juice to keep up with all the day-to-day tasks.

Power-Packed and Smooth Performance

The 8nm octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 720G Mobile Platform boasts of a strong combination of features and delivers impressive performance, with low energy consumption. Thanks to the 8GB RAM, users can run multiple apps efficiently at the same time, while the 128 and 256GB of ROM options (expandable till class leading 1 TB) provide ample storage for your games, files, photos and videos.

Funtouch OS 11

V20 is the first phone in its category to launch with the latest Android 11 out of the box.  The updated and cleaner Funtouch OS 11 meets the consumer demand for simple, smooth and efficient operating skin. With Funtouch OS 11 consumer will witness the newest UI design, new desktop icons, improved dark mode, new live wallpapers, improved Jovi virtual assistant and several customization options.

Ultra-Game Mode

You can block SMS notifications and all other apps for minimized disturbances; enable Accidental Touch Prevention to ensure precise control, and lock the brightness to enjoy the optimal visual effects. Plus, thanks to an adaptive frame rate and allocation of required resources, consumers can enjoy seamless gaming.

AI-Powered Album Supports Diverse Image Experiences

The Dynamic Sky divider algorithm recognizes and separates content in the image and replaces a specific zone with preset footage to make changes in the sky. You can drag and draw in a locked zone, add motion effects to the sky and replace the original effect, and thus create a perfect fit in the AI-powered sky. This feature meets the consumer demand for having pleasure from an album app and sharing topics.

OPPO ColorOS 13 Beta Version Update Released on Reno8 Pro 5G and F21 Pro

Published

on

OPPO announced the rollout of the ColorOS 13 Beta version for Reno8 Pro 5G and F21 Pro users in India. The operating system, which is based on Android 13, boasts a user-friendly UI for a seamless visual experience. Additionally, ColorOS 13 is boosted by OPPO’s latest tech innovations that deliver all-around performance in every aspect of life and work, and new features for smart multi-device connections.

OPPO works closely with Google in the development of ColorOS 13 to bring new value to the Android OS experience. OPPO has also launched ColorOS developer versions based on Android 13 Beta and will continue to collaborate with Google to build a rich Android ecosystem.

With ColorOS13, users can experience the brand new Aquamorphic design and the card style layout. Its proprietary Dynamic computing engine brings two significant improvements to ColorOS 13 – increased battery life and the ability to run more apps open in the background.

OPPO has partnered with world-leading software and service providers, including Bitmoji, Spotify, Swiggy and Zomato, to provide a wide range of convenient and personalised experiences through the Smart Always-On Display. This ColorOS13 update allows users to experience improved Multi-Screen Connect and industry-first Meeting Assistant.

In addition to its own focus on privacy and security, ColorOS 13 integrates the underlying privacy protection features of Android 13. For example, the system automatically deletes the clipboard history after a short period to prevent the leak of sensitive information because of malware. Also, with the Nearby Wi-Fi feature, users can enjoy Wi-Fi without revealing specific location information.

OPPO’s self-developed technology is equally important in boosting privacy and security. Based on the on-device algorithm model, Auto Pixelate automatically recognises and blurs out the profile photos and names in chat screenshots with one tap. The new Private Safe is encrypted with the widely-used Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to provide high levels of security. ColorOS 13 provides privacy and safety protections that users can trust based on authoritative security and privacy authentication standards such as ePrivacy, TRUSTe, ISO27701, and ISO27001.

OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G, an end-to-end imaging expert, was launched in July this year. The smartphone is an imaging expert backed by OPPO’s proprietary imaging NPU, the MariSiliconX. It boasts the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX SoC and a 4500mAH battery with OPPO’s 80W SUPERVOOCTM Flash Charge.

The OPPO F21 Pro was introduced in April this year. The smartphone comes equipped with the Flagship IMX709 selfie sensor, which is 60% more sensitive to light and reduces noise by 35% compared to the previous generation IMX615 RGB sensor. It features the Fiberglass leather design, is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset and is backed by a 4500mAh battery with a 33W SUPERVOOC Charge.
