Enabling the Perfect Shot, Perfect View and an AI-Powered Experience for Young Consumers
Yangon, April 28, 2018 – Vivo today celebrated the launch of its all-new V9 smartphone at Melia Hotel in Yangon, featuring Vivo’s FullViewTM Display and 90% screen-to-body ratio that delivers AI-powered perfect shots. The V9 is designed with the ultimate sleek and stylish smartphone that can take the “perfect shot” and provide the “perfect view” through the power of AI.
Following Vivo’s recent announcements around 5G and In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technologies, Vivo’s V9 uses advanced machine learning to provide a unique AI-powered mobile experience that enhances multiple features such as AI Face Beauty, AI Smart Engine and AI Selfie Lighting, etc.
The Vivo V9’s AI Face Beauty is trained using a comprehensive database of almost one million facial images. This allows the V9’s AI to detect the age, sex, skin texture and skin tone of the subject as well as the lighting environment. It can then apply enhancements in line with the preferences of local users. Other AI photography features include the new AI Selfie Lighting, which algorithm transforms the original 2D photo into a 3D model to process the light authentically and artistically, helping users create their masterpieces.
Beyond photography, the V9’s AI also ensures the best performance by optimizing and supporting the phone’s operations with the AI Smart Engine which prioritizes system resources according to user habits.
Vivo has improved on the previous generation’s facial unlocking technology with AI Face Access, which detects the reflection of natural skin and the subtle movements of the face to further reduce the possibility of unlocking when shown photos or videos. The V9’s AI Attention Sensing also recognizes when you’re looking at the phones to keep disruptions to a minimum by automatically reducing the volume of message alerts, incoming calls and alarms.
“V9 represents our understanding of consumer’s need for their mobile camera to automatically create the ‘perfect shot’ in any scenario. We are excited to introduce the V9’s AI power to young consumers in Myanmar,” U Htun Htun Win, Digital PR Manager of Vivo Mobile Myanmar Co., Ltd.
“With AI playing a key role, we are confident that we can inspire and empower more consumers globally to express themselves by making the ‘perfect shot’ easier than ever to take, while the FullViewTM display provides consumers with the ‘perfect view’ to experience their photographic moments of self-expression,” he added.
V9 will be available in Myanmar in Pearl Black and Gold at 399,000 Kyats.
