The new V25 series follows V series’ heritage of capturing exquisite moments with its superior camera capabilities and cutting-edge imaging technology. The flagship-level 64MP OIS ultra-sensing camera on the back minimizes blurry shots and supports a longer exposure time, creating clearer and brighter images and videos even in dim lighting conditions. With an eye-catching design, the Color Changing Fluorite AG Glass covering the rear panel changes its hue when exposed to UV light, reflecting the dynamic personalities of users. Below its beautiful appearance lies a powerful processor with a high energy-efficiency ratio and great capacity. Coupled with the newest cooling technology and fast charging capabilities, it offers a long-lasting and smooth mobile experience in various scenarios.
“vivo V series has always been about being innovative and technologically advanced while exuding style and encouraging users to create, have fun, and explore. The new V25 and V25 Pro continue to embody this concept and provide users with fresh tools and features,” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President, and Chief Marketing Officer at vivo, “vivo understands that users want a smartphone that is aesthetically pleasing and has excellent functional attributes. With the carefully designed new devices, users can capture the best moments in life with their family and friends anywhere, any time with intuitive camera technologies, while expressing their creativity and emotions through the unique color-changing design.”
Equipped with a 64MP OIS ultra-sensing rear camera that boasts upgraded OIS and EIS capabilities and an 8MP wide-angle camera, V25, and V25 Pro delivers an excellent imaging experience and allow users to capture high-quality, super-wide shots with ease. V25 Pro is setting new standards in night photography with the upgraded Super Night Mode feature, which accurately restores the colors and brightness of highly saturated images at night. Coupled with the new Real-Time Extreme Night Vision feature, users can manually adjust the exposure intensity when they preview an image, further improving the brightness, noise control, and details of photos in real-time even in low-light environments. This gives users the freedom to play with the rear camera portrait features at night.
V25 Pro creates more possibilities for users to easily film and record fun and playful moments with families, friends, or pets at night. The Super Night Video feature is excellent at brightening and noise reduction in dark environments, enabling users to shoot brighter and clearer videos at night. The front cameras of V25 and V25 Pro both have the Natural Portrait video mode, which enhances the overall skin texture and clarity. Furthermore, the Hybrid Image Stabilization (OIS+EIS) feature makes video shooting clearer and more stable.
V25 and V25 Pro also come with a new Vlog Movie feature that improves the filming experience with video templates and tutorials to guide users on how to shoot in different scenarios, such as night, food, city, and more, as well as an upgraded Multi-Style Portrait feature in the front camera that provides fun filters, enhancing the video experience. The Multi-Style Portrait feature also allows users to unleash their creativity with the Motion Blur effect, a new style that innovatively separates people from the background for a better portrait creation experience.
Clarity is a key consideration and an ever-growing demand of users when it comes to taking great selfies and videos. Therefore, V25 and V25 Pro have 50MP and 32MP HD front cameras respectively with autofocus and eye focus capabilities, enabling users to take clear images and videos any time of the day or night. In addition, the front cameras are equipped with AI HD Algorithm that optimizes sharpness. Moreover, V25 Pro’s industry-leading AI Skin Retouching Algorithm provides users with an airbrushed look when needed.
V25 has a thin 2.5D body that is 7.79mm, while the slim body of V25 Pro is 8.62mm and features an elegant 3D Curved Screen with a punch hole centered at the top of the front camera. The lightweight and slim body make both devices a comfortable fit in the hands of users. To ensure the phones stand out, vivo incorporated vivid colours into its newest models. V25 Pro comes in Surfing Blue and Starlight Black, while V25 is decked out in Sunrise Gold and Diamond Black.
In addition, vivo designed the smartphones to spark creativity and fun in users with the revolutionary Color Changing Fluorite AG Glass, which enables the rear panel of the devices to display different colors at different angles when exposed to UV light. The Surfing Blue edition of V25 Pro changes from light sky blue to deep ocean blue; the Sunrise Gold edition of V25 shifts from gold to reddish-orange.
The new V25 series delivers robust performance and high-power efficiency to support various daily uses of its users. V25 Pro is equipped with a quasi-flagship octa-core CPU, MediaTek Dimensity 1300, with 12GB RAM + 8GB extended RAM, which powers exceptional 5G capabilities and provides greater AI imaging capacity to effortlessly produce stunning 4K videos and ensure a smooth gaming experience. Its performance and user experience are improved thanks to the new, industry-leading Bionic Cooling System. In addition, featuring a 66W FlashCharge capability and a 4830mAh large battery, it can power up the large-capacity and high-density battery cell from 0% to 71% in 30 minutes.

Sony Launches FE 24-50mm F2.8 G, a Compact, Large Aperture F2.8 G Lens with High-Performance Optics
Sony Middle East and Africa has announced the release of its new compact 35mm full-frame compatible α (Alpha) E-mount lens, FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (product name SEL2450G) standard zoom with F2.8 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range. Despite its small and lightweight body, it achieves the high-resolution performance and beautiful bokeh that can be expected from a large aperture G Lens with F2.8. It covers a focal length of 24 mm to 50 mm, allowing you to capture everything from still images such as everyday snapshots, and portraits to video shooting, all in high quality but with a design that will easily fit in the smallest of kit bags.
With the latest optical and mechanical design, the dimensions have been kept compact with a filter diameter of φ67 mm, maximum diameter of 74.8 mm, length of 92.3 mm, and weight of approximately 440 g. Sharp and detailed images at all focal lengths are achieved thanks to the arrangement of four aspherical lenses and two pieces of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, so that aberrations such as chromatic aberration, are reduced, achieving high-resolution performance from the centre to the corner. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G uses an 11-blade circular aperture which together with the optimisation of spherical aberration provides the beautiful, soft and smooth bokeh that is characteristic of the G Lens series. It has a minimum shooting distance of 0.19 m (AF) at the wide end and a maximum magnification of 0.30 x (AF) offering high-quality close-up shooting.
The quality is evident through the AF (auto focus) whereby, equipped with two linear motors, it achieves high speed, high precision, high tracking, and quiet focusing. It also supports high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking of up to 120 frames per second for the full-frame mirrorless camera Alpha 9 III. For those wanting a solid video performance, AF tracking is available for high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movie recording where critical focus control is required, plus it supports in-body Active Mode image stabilisation for steady shooting while walking. It is also compatible with the focus breathing compensation on camera bodies, allowing for high-quality video expression.
Intuitive manual focus is achieved thanks to the adoption of linear response MF which allows smooth and superior image expression. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G is equipped with user-friendly functions such as a customisable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click ON/OFF switch, and focus mode switch, offering high operability and comprehensive control. Plus, for further ease of use, they are designed to be dust and moisture-proof with a fluorine coating which prevents dirt from sticking to the front surface of the lens.
The new FE 24-50mm F2.8 G will be available in the region from Q2 2024.

HONOR Says its Eye-Tracking Features Can Move a Car
HONOR has introduced an AI-powered eye-tracking feature that can move a car without a driver inside. This experiment, demonstrated by an automotive engineer, uses the eye-tracking feature of the HONOR Magic6 Pro to control a car based on the user’s eye movement.
A video by Autocar, available on YouTube, showcases this innovative technology. The HONOR Magic6 Pro is equipped with four commands that can be activated by eye gaze, allowing the car to start the engine, turn it off, and move forward or backwards. After focusing on a specific button for 2-3 seconds, the corresponding command is activated, and the car responds accordingly.
HONOR says that this demonstration is a testament to the company’s belief that AI can transform the way humans interact with devices in the future. HONOR has announced that its MWC Launch Event will be on February 25th. HONOR will also host an AI Panel with industry partners such as Qualcomm to unveil more discoveries about the future of AI. This event will take place on February 26th at 17:00 (CET) at MWC 2024. Find out more at this link: https://www.hihonor.com/ae-en/events/honor-mwc/
