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.
