We are living in the future and Vivo exemplifies this in all their products. Committed to innovation, the global smartphone brand continues to reinvent its products, this year even inching closer to science-forward technology by integrating artificial intelligence into their smartphone features.
But what exactly is artificial intelligence and how does it affect smartphone technology today and beyond? Artificial intelligence, or most common to us simply as A.I., is the concept of a device gathering data and, like robots of the future, calculates these data to help the A.I. make “decisions”. With Vivo’s latest pride, for instance, the in-display fingerprint technology-powered X21, photos come out more natural as if captured by the human eye with the smartphone’s A.I. Super HDR camera. The Super HDR, as the ‘super’ in the name suggests, provides enhanced feature to produce life-like, superior shots. The A.I. Super HDR controls A.I. algorithms to adapt to various scenarios such as low light situations. As soon as the shutter of the X21’s camera is pressed, the A.I. will automatically detect the scene to figure out the best exposure and, as such, select the proper frames to create the ideal shot. Another pride of the X21 in terms of its camera features is the A.I. Face Beauty spec. This one-of-a-kind A.I. feature gets rid of the backlight and retains and focuses only on the facial features naturally. The A.I. Face Beauty feature follows an intelligent algorithm to scan the person’s 3D facial features and “suggests” better lighting and other beautifying effects.
Another A.I. feature of the Vivo X21 is the newest A.I. Game Mode spec, where mobile gamers can play games minus the frustrating distractions. Vivo X21’s A.I. Game Mode feature intelligently detects when the user has launched a game on the device and at this instant, the smartphone transforms from a mere phone to a dedicated gaming console. If user is okay with chatting and playing at the same time, he A.I. Game Mode features also has a Game Assist and Game picture-in-picture spec where the user can simply open a chat application in a pop-up window so he can multi-task by playing and interacting with friends via chat at the same time. To activate the A.I. Game Mode, one has to simply go to the phone’s settings and look for the Game Mode options from the menu. It can also be activated at the Quick Launch menu of the X21 by simply swiping up from the bottom of the phone’s screen to reveal the menu and activate Game Mode after which user can start playing his game of choice.
Just recently, Vivo, through a participation with Sunglasess and Eyewear store Ideal Vision Center, featured the benefits of the new A.I. Game Mode feature of the Vivo X21 at the AsiaPop Comicon 2018 held last July 17 to July 29 at the SMX Convention Center. Ideal Vision Center’s Gamerspecs, a limited-edition Comic.
Specs with Gaming Lense was used by AsiaPop Comicon attendees together with the Vivo X21 to play their favorite mobile video games, giving them a one-of-a-kind gaming experience.
Another fun feature which rely on artificial intelligence are the AR Stickers. AR Stickers are decorative stickers one can use to jazz up their photos and selfies. Delightful and with a wide array of designs to choose from, the AR Stickers level up selfies the charming way. Users can count on a Vivo smartphone’s AR Stickers’ versatility as the feature may be used with a wide selection of mobile applications. The first Vivo mobile phone to feature AR Stickers was the Vivo V9, launched March of this year.
Artificial Intelligence has made its way from the movie screens to actual everyday devices real people actually use and the Vivo X21, with its features carefully thought of through many processes of innovating and inventing, is Vivo’s testimony that it has crossed over to the future. Vivo integrating Artificial Intelligence into its products is just the beginning of many more technology revolutions up its sleeves, waiting to be unfolded in the very near future.
