July 31st, 2023



Coming to Europe first: Equipped with an Aura Light, the mid-range device offers professional portrait shooting capabilities in low-light


vivo has unveiled its latest V series device. The V29 will be launched in Europe first and is equipped with the unique Aura Light that enables users to take professional portraits even under low-light conditions. As the V29 follows the principles of vivo's V series, it comes with uncompromising performance in core features for everyday use, complemented by unconventional and fresh design and driven by innovative technology.


Step into the spotlight with studio-level portraits

The V29 provides a powerful camera package with unique Aura Light function for natural studio quality, portrait shots. The rear camera of the V29 is equipped with a large light ring (15.6 mm in diameter), that empowers the camera with excellent low-light and night photography capabilities. The oversized Aura Light creates a three-dimensional lighting effect and ensures even illumination from every angle, eliminating facial shadows and dark areas. With a light-emitting area nine times larger than a standard flash, this lighting delicately accentuates the skin tone while artfully concealing imperfections, unveiling one's natural beauty. Additionally, the 36% increase in brightness as compared to its predecessor V27 allows the vivo V29 to capture shots with vivid clarity.


However, the V29 goes beyond enhancing visual appeal with its all-encompassing Aura Light. It also introduces the integration of Smart Colour Temperature Adjustment, which enables the device to adapt to diverse environments with varying colour temperatures. From dynamic nightclubs to vibrant neon-lit streets or cosy bars, the V29 effortlessly adapts its colour temperature to intelligently align with the environment, providing users with the expertise of a personal light designer. With just a single tap on the V29, subjects in dimly lit environments are gently illuminated, allowing their unique characteristics to shine through. The results are bright, clear portraits with a captivating atmosphere that enriches every shot.

Professional night photography experience on the go

For high-quality night images, the V29 is powered by an advanced 50 MP OIS Ultra-Sensing Camera. Extending exposure and enhancing light intake, the V29 ensures the capture of stable images, even in low-light conditions. With the V29, users can experience studio-level photography integrated seamlessly into a smartphone, all without the weight of a hefty price tag.


Overcoming the limits of traditional selfie photography

With an enhanced 50 MP HD Camera of the V29, vivo overcomes the limits of traditional selfie photography by expanding the field of view and precise autofocus capabilities. Capturing more smiles effortlessly, and without distortions. From group photos to videos, the V29 allows users to unleash their creativity and create enchanting memories.



Industry-unique design through 3D Magnetic Particles technology

The V29 comes in two colour versions: Peak Blue and Noble Black. While the Noble Black colour reflects timeless elegance and style through nano-scale photoetching technique, the Peak Blue stands out and catches the eye. Inspired by the mighty grandeur atop the mountains, the unique design is a true industry first, created with 3D Magnetic Particles technology. 15 million micron-sized 3D magnetic particles create a variety of different shimmering and cascading gradations of light and shadows. By tilting the phone, the mountain-like silhouette shifts and sways, as if responding to the rhythm of the movement.


1.5K premium-level AMOLED curved screen

The V29 series features a 120 Hz 1.5K AMOLED display and a 6.78″ 3D curved screen. With a resolution of 1.5K and a high-pixel density of 452 PPI, every detail comes to life with clear precision. Users will be immersed in a captivating visual experience as the V29 showcases 1.07 billion colours and a DCI-P3 cinema-grade colour gamut. In addition, the V29 prioritizes eye health and has received three SGS professional-grade eye protection certifications.


Allrounder with a powerful and long-lasting performance

The V29 is designed to provide a smooth and powerful experience – anytime users need it. Therefore, the V29 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon® 778G, known for its fast, efficient everyday performance and seamless 5G connectivity. Thanks to the new eSIM technology, V29 users can easily switch SIM profiles without physically exchanging SIM cards. Travelling abroad to another country and activating a new eSIM card is thus only clicks away. With its Memory Booster (8 GB RAM + 8 GB Extended RAM1), the device offers ample storage and strong support for the operating system. vivo's V29 also includes an Ultra Large VC Bionic Cooling System, which enables the device to unleash optimal performance in various scenarios, delivering an immersive experience – whether during intense gaming sessions or captivating cinematic experiences. In addition, the updated 80W FlashCharge2 and 4600 mAh (TYP) battery allow for fast and safe charging, enabling the phone to be charged from 1% to 50% in just 18 minutes3 and the Battery Endurance is impressive too. Supported by novel battery materials and a smart charging engine, the V29 keeps the battery at its peak condition for a longer time, doubling the industry standard, guaranteeing reliable and long-lasting use.


V Series users have high expectations of the robustness and durability of their product. With IP68 rating, the V29 sets new benchmarks in its price range.
