32MP selfies? Yes, says Vivo, teases an ultra-detailed front-facing camera for its X5 Pro
Vivo is by no means a well-known or a mainstream manufacturer, but it often surprises us with its devices. For instance, its Vivo X5 Max is among the thinnest smartphones we've ever seen (it was merely 4.8mm in its thickest part). From the looks of it, Vivo's upcoming X5 Pro might also have an interesting and compelling feature.

Vivo just teased that its upcoming device will allow you to take ultra-detailed 32MP selfies. Yep, you read that right! The front-facing camera of the Vivo X5 Pro will probably let you see all of your little imperfections, wrinkles, and blemishes. Jokes aside, we highly doubt that Vivo will actually put such a camera sensor in its upcoming device; it's way more probably that the actual camera will be much smaller (probably 8 or 13MP) and the phone will make use of a software image interpolation. This technology, which is also used by Oppo, takes a few shots simultaneously and digitally stitches them together in order to create an ultra-detailed high-res image.

Aside from the hinted selfie prowess, the upcoming X5 Pro will also sport 2.5D curved glass and rounded metal frame, as well as a 3,500mAh battery, probably 3GB of RAM and a 6-inch display. Android 5.0 Lollipop with Vivo's Funtouch OS UI will be powering the device. The device will be powered by the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 and will be officially unveiled in early May, probably on May 6 or May 7.

*Insert Annoyed Picard Meme*, Why the F*ck we need such high pixel camera for? Capture wrinkle, pimple and eye bag? Well joke aside, i think this device suitable for those who like selfie very much.

32mp...stiched from 13mp images that in and of themselves are not 32mp...so probably just a over software processed 13mp file, and since facebook etc are like 2MB size, kinda pointless

LOL, snapdragon 615 can only support upto 21 MP. I guess it will be sh*t slow like the lumia 1020

No it will all be post processed. Meaning it will take quick shots, store the 3MB files into memory (which is super fast at 300MB/s), then turn around and stitch them in the background or upon opening saving the lag till you truly need to edit the pic.

Kinda like what the 640 does, it takes like 4 shots with a 8MP camera, making it 32MP if you were to believe their Hype, and then when you go back it says processing. However i can take about 4 of those pics back to back without any slow down. And the shot times are less than a second between shots.

The ISP yes but this interpolation is done on already captured images so it's done in the CPU so I don't think there's a limit

That is sensor image capture size, not file size. Technically the system can handle up to what, 4GB files, as in a video. However....it can only process 21MP for a given frame or shot. Considering 4k is actually just 8MP, a image capture is much more data.

So repost from above:

I wish they bring forth a new trend of smartphone with ultra-high megapixel front facing cameras. Gone will be the days when chicks take needless selfies when close up pics bring out facial imperfections lol
