Powerful Imaging Specs, a Big Leap Forward

The new generation of the vivo ZEISS co-engineered imaging system brings a combination of hardware upgrades and software breakthroughs. It boasts improved light sensitivity, aperture, natural colour processing and stabilisation for an easy and intuitive point-and-shoot camera experience. The vivo X90 Series features a triple rear camera systems, each with certified compliance with ZEISS T* Coating.


vivo X90 Pro pushes the limits of smartphone imaging with a 50MP ZEISS 1-inch Main Camera, 50MP Portrait Camera with a Large Sensor and a 12MP Wide-Angle Camera. The main camera on the vivo X90 Pro uses a 1-inch IMX989 sensor, the industry's largest to date. The f/1.75 large aperture and 3.2 μm large pixel (4-in-1) size on the vivo X90 Pro increase the light intake per pixel, allowing for brighter, purer night images. Compared to the GNV sensor used in the previous X generation, the new IMX989 sensor's photosensitive area has increased by 77%, with its light intake capacity going up by 43%.


The 50MP Portrait Camera features an ultra-sensing portrait lens, with an IMX758 sensor that helps to achieve an aperture of f/1.6. With the support of the stabilisation system, an exclusive large-aperture lens and 4-in-1 sensor technology, vivo X90 Pro delivers subtly detailed portraits, even in low light.


vivo X90 Pro also introduces an independent optical image stabilisation (OIS) technology developed by vivo, allowing for more intelligent and precise stabilisation correction compared to standard OIS. It also supports Active Centring OIS System, significantly reducing smears between frames and motion blur. 


As for the vivo X90, it boasts a 50MP VCS True Colour Main Camera, a 12MP Professional Portrait Camera and a 12MP Wide-Angle Camera. The VCS True Colour Main Camera optimises the sensor spectrum to achieve the target RGB colours better, improving native image colours, ensuring colour consistency and lowering the noise level.


Pro-level Camera Features to Capture Life's Moments, Day or Night

The upgraded camera sensors, vivo's exclusive V2 imaging chip, the in-house developed AI algorithms and ZEISS Optics with T* Coating work together to further enhance the capability of night photography and astrophotography, making the new vivo X90 Series the perfect stargazing companion. New tools for unique and professional-grade content creation are also introduced.


4K Ultra-Sensing Night Video is now made effortless with vivo's Super Night Video 3.0 algorithm, supporting exceptional photosensitivity in extremely dark environments. What's more, the V2 chip ensures clarity even at high ISO settings with its noise reduction algorithm.


The vivo X90 Pro comes with an overhauled Handheld Astro mode to capture starry sky with greater clarity without the need of a tripod. This feature is supported by the device's enhanced light sensitivity, upgraded stabilisation technology and a new AI PD Extreme Night focus technology, that improves focus accuracy. Taking landscape moon photos is made possible with the Super Moon mode, available on both the vivo X90 and X90 Pro, which combines the hardware upgrades and the new Super Night 3.0 algorithm. At the blue hour, the period just before sunrise or after sunset where the sun dips below the horizon, vivo's sky-segmentation technology optimises blue-tone colours while its Double Exposure algorithm integrates the landscape and the moon into one stunning image.


AI Night View feature tackles the challenge of getting the tone just right in night photos. Powered by AI network learning, AI Night View can shoot up to 10 frames in RAW while maintaining a high dynamic range. It recognises elements such as the sky and human faces in night scenes and carries out segmentation to fine-tune the tone and colour of each segment. It processes HDR tones with a colour depth of up to 22 bits for more subtle colour transitions.


ZEISS Natural Color 2.0 in the new vivo X90 Series has been further calibrated to present colours with more authenticity and accuracy, bringing captured images closer to what is seen with the naked eye.


For the first time, a new ZEISS Natural Color Display is now added to screen colour style settings, ensuring the captured colours are not affected by the display. Now every individual display of the vivo X90 and vivo X90 Pro gets calibrated to guarantee that the colour rendition of the display is close to perfect. 


Another powerful creation feature is the Zero-Shutter-Lag Motion Snapshot, which makes capturing motion easier than ever before. The zero-second delay means what you see is what you get in key moments, even in low light settings. In Sports mode and Night Sports mode, the combination of the high-speed shutter and motion detection algorithm can instantly freeze frames, keeping any fast-moving subject clear.


The series also brings new creative effects jointly developed by vivo and ZEISS. The new ZEISS Cine-flare Portrait style simulates the flare effect seen in many classic films. Users can also capture unique miniature landscapes using the ZEISS Miniature Effect. This effect only keeps a small part of a landscape image sharp to generate the illusion of a miniature scene with no post-editing needed.
