Vivo enriches its catalog of smartphones with two new entries in the competitive mid-range market. The Chinese firm has just presented the V25 and V25 Pro, 5G smartphones that are primarily aimed at a young audience, eager for vlogging and selfies.
The Vivo V25 has a 6.44-inch Amoled panel displaying Full HD+ (1080 x 2404 pixels) and enjoying an image refresh rate of up to 90 Hz. It is HDR10+ certified, but despite the Oled technology at work, its fingerprint reader is placed on its right edge. It benefits from a fluorite coating which allows it to change color in the event of UV exposure, as was the case with the V23. This works for the blue and gold model, but obviously not for the black version of the device.
The set works thanks to a MediaTek Dimensity 900 chip coupled with 8/12 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of storage. On the back, there is a triple photo system consisting of a 64-megapixel main module whose lens opens at f / 1.8 (with optical stabilization), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and a 2 Mpx macro module. At the front, we are entitled to a 50 megapixel sensor. We can expect quality selfies, as was already the case on the previous V23.
Autonomy is ensured by a 4500 mAh battery compatible with fast charging at 44 W. The device runs on Android 12 and the FunTouch OS 12 house overlay. The firm has not yet communicated on its price or its exact date. of availability.
A more ambitious Pro version
The Pro version of this V25 is a little more imposing, since it has a curved Amoled screen of 6.56 inches. The latter occupies almost 90% of its front face, and is supposed to offer a light peak of up to 1300 cd / m², which will have to be checked in the lab. It also displays a Full HD + definition (1080 x 2376 pixels), and sees its image refresh rate increase to 120 Hz.
The SoC is more ambitious, since it is a Dimensity 1300, still signed MediaTek, and also coupled with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. It retains the same configuration as its little brother in the photo, but the front sensor goes to 32 megapixels, still with the autofocus function.
Its more generous dimensions of 158.9 x 73.5 x 8.6 mm allow it to accommodate a larger 4830 mAh battery, compatible with 66 W charging.
The Vivo V25 Pro is only available in black and blue. The 8/128 GB version will retail for around €450 excluding tax, while the 12/256 GB model costs around €500 excluding tax. Pre-orders have already started, and the actual availability is scheduled for August 25 in India. It will probably take a few more weeks for the V25 and V25 Pro to appear on the international market.
