Vivo V19: Features
The Vivo V19 is a strictly mid-segment phone which focuses on bringing a premium design and impressive camera experience -- both with its selfie and rear camera set-up.
The phone comes with features such as the Super Night Mode to capture impressive selfies even in low light conditions. This mode is claimed to pack the 'Multiple-Exposure' technique, which merges 14 different frames at multiple exposure values reducing the noise of low-light photos. In addition, the Super Night Mode also has an AI face recognition that becomes automatically active in low light to ensure clearer, brighter & stunning selfies.
There's also a new Aura Screen Light feature which allows users to enjoy studio-style illumination even in unfavorable light conditions. This mode intelligently identifies the brightness, contrast and colour temperature and produces balanced lights (neither too cold nor too warm) around the screen and gives you the ultimate HD picture that you're looking for.
The other big feature of the V19 is its massive 4,500mAh battery that promises a day's use and can be charged from 0% to 70% in just 40 minutes using 33W Vivo FlashCharge 2.0 technology.
