Vivo Xshot to have a 24MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and OIS

Vivo Xshot to have a 24MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and OIS
The unannounced Vivo Xshot that we first told you about in early April seems to be a photographer’s dream.

According to a few teaser images published by Vivo, the new Android-based smartphone features a Sony-made 24MP rear camera with Exmor RS technology. This camera comes with optical image stabilization (OIS), dual LED flash, and a very large f/1.8 aperture. For the sake of comparison, Nokia Lumia 1020’s camera has an f/2.2 aperture, while the camera of the Sony Xperia Z2 has an f/2.0 aperture. It appears that the camera of the Xshot can shoot 3D video, as well as 4K video. There’s even a dedicated shutter button.

Reportedly, the rest of features that the Vivo Xshot will bring include an unusual 7.68MP front-facing camera, a 1080p display of unknown size, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory.

As you may know, this isn’t the first high-end Vivo Android smartphone. Just recently, Vivo (which actually belongs to a Chinese company called BBK Electronics) released the Xplay 3S as the world’s first smartphone to sport a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display.

There is no word on when the Vivo Xshot will be officially released, but it should happen pretty soon. Unfortunately, at the moment we don’t know if the handset will be available outside of China.

no information about the sensor size and at the end how is their software. if software is crap they can even screw up on canon dslr sensor.

1020 has an f/2.2 because of it's already massive sensor. Some phones need a wider aperture because they're sensors are so small.

Admittedly it does look pretty sweet with great camera specs...

What else is funny is the camera button instantly made me think of Sony's power buttons (not that those are original or patent) and the "Xshot" logo reminded me of Cybershot's. (sameish font) Sometimes though I still wonder why it took Sony so long to get camera processing correct; most of us informed know that its competitors have been using their sensors to far better results...
