Singapore, 15 June 2022 – Leading global technology company, vivo today announces the launch of its latest flagship smartphone, the vivo X80 Pro 5G in Singapore. The X80 Pro 5G is the newest in vivo’s X series line of phones and continues to demonstrate the company’s relentless pursuit of providing stellar user experience in photography and videography with the smartphones’ artistic cinematic modes, flagship performance, and technological innovations.
Taking inspiration from the design of professional cameras, the back of the phone features the all-new aesthetically pleasing Ceramic Cloud Window camera module. Building on vivo X series’ professional mobile photography foundations, the vivo X80 Pro 5G continues to provide users with a refined and premium mobile experience with both new and upgraded cinematic and photography, developed in collaboration with ZEISS – a global leader in optics and opto-electronics.
“At vivo, we strive to create the ultimate mobile photography and videography experience to our users, combining innovation, cutting-edge capabilities, and developments through our partnership with ZEISS.

Premium Mobile Photography Experience
The vivo X80 Pro 5G sports a rear quad-camera system with a 50MP Ultra-Sensing GNV Camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), a 48MP Wide-Angle Camera, a 12MP Gimbal Portrait Camera, a 8MP Periscope Camera, and a 32MP front camera to suit all photography needs.
The 50MP main camera’s customised Ultra-Sensing GNV Sensor assists to reduce reflectivity and stray light. This camera uses a High Transmittance Glass Lens to ensure low dispersion and temperature drift to reduce glaring. The new 12MP Gimbal Portrait Camera is a core upgrade on the X80 Pro 5G that allows for video enhancement and stability. Additionally, ZEISS T* Coating applied on the camera system enhances light transmission and reduces light flares and other aberrations that can negatively affect the image.
Furthering the pursuit to provide a premium photography and videography experience, the X80 Pro 5G is equipped with the latest iteration of vivo’s imaging chip, the vivo V1+, to deliver an elevated experience to users with a built-in AI system for augmented visual enhancement. With the vivo V1+, the AI Video Enhancement on the X80 Pro 5G allows the device to switch automatically between Video HDR and Night Mode depending on the scene conditions, boosting night shooting capabilities.
Camera Panning is a new and exclusive feature that further enhances the X80 Pro 5G’s capabilities. This feature includes Portrait Motion tracking technology, which reduces motion blur caused by shaky hands or sudden movements. The Night Sports Mode also allows users to take outstanding, dynamic images, as it can capture clear photos and videos even in extreme scenarios thanks to its improved motion detection and reduction abilities.
Powered by features co-developed with ZEISS, the X80 Pro 5G produces quality bokeh which is only often achieved in professional cameras
Groundbreaking Professional Imaging Features with ZEISS
The new ZEISS Cinematic Video Bokeh feature on the vivo X80 Pro 5G allows it to create a unique ‘oval flare’ bokeh with a 2.39:1 ratio, enabling users to shoot with a widescreen cinematic lens effect that can capture aesthetically pleasing and expressive videos. On the other hand, the regular lens video bokeh styles allow users to create portrait videos with unique bokeh effects. The bokeh effect varies to match the focal length, aperture, and shooting distance in a 16:9 frame.
New effects have been added to the ZEISS Superb Portrait feature, such as ZEISS Cinematic Style Bokeh. This feature enables users to recreate classic film aesthetics by adding film-like, artistic oval bokeh effect with a 2.39:1 widescreen aspect ratio, a feature similar to the ZEISS Cinematic Video Bokeh. The overall effects are also enhanced with vivo’s cinematic lens simulation algorithm and a dual-camera depth-of-field technology that combines flare rendering and processing.
Night Photography has been improved on the X80 Pro 5G, with upgrades to the ZEISS Superb Night Camera feature. With features such as Pure Night View, users can capture clearer and sharper photos at night. In addition, the X80 Pro 5G supports XDR Photo Display Technology that enhances clarity for backlit images and improve tones that better replicates what the human eyes can see and optimises the display capabilities of the X80 Pro 5G through highlighting contrasting tones in photos to produce photos with high-quality HDR effects.
Lastly, upgrades have been made to the X80 Pro 5G’s ZEISS Natural Colour mode, aided by a proprietary AI Perception Engine to improve colour accuracy and account for colour and scene changes. This is an industry-leading hue shifting technology that can reproduce natural colours and combined with the AI Perception Engine, can automatically and accurately optimise both exposure and white balance. This feature now includes the ability to adjust tone brightness, capturing moments that appear more lifelike, refined, and natural.
