vivo Launches the New V29 Lite 5G



vivo has launched its newest mid-range smartphone, the vivo V29 Lite 5G, which puts a heavy focus on build quality and reliability, with a feature set adapted to real-life usage scenarios: Starting with a 64-megapixel optically stabilised main camera, 120Hz eye-protection AMOLED screen, as well as 44-Watt fast charging of the large 5000 milliamp battery, ensuring carefree usage over a full day. In addition, the V29 Lite brings the Extended RAM feature for smooth multitasking, IP54 water and dust resistance, as well as a sleek design.

Commenting on the launch, Saeed Klaib, Director of Communications at vivo Middle East and Brand Manager at vivo Saudi Arabia, stated: We are thrilled to introduce our customers to our latest smartphone, the V29 Lite, a true embodiment of vivo’s unwavering commitment to quality and reliability. With meticulous attention to detail, we have launched a device that seamlessly integrates into our customers’ lives, empowering them to connect, create, and explore. At vivo, we remain dedicated to delivering unparalleled customer experiences.”

The vivo V29 Lite 5G features a primary 64-Megapixel anti-shake main camera, whose optical image stabilisation is on the hardware level with flagship devices. Thanks to its high resolution and steadiness in hand, it offers outstanding photography and videography in nearly all light conditions; Consumers can take stunning photos and videos with ease, whether it’s in bright daylight, or in dimly lit environments. The primary camera sensor is supported with a two-megapixel Bokeh as well as two-megapixel Super Macro Camera, which contributes to the overall picture quality, and supports consumers’ creativity, thanks to clever image post-processing and features such as the Night Portrait Scene, Bokeh Flare Portrait, Multi-Style Portrait, Flash Portrait or the Double Exposure, which enables capture of layered photos with the subject in front, and natural scenery or indoors in the background.

Vloggers will appreciate the embedded Dual-View Video feature, which enables the capture of video scenes using the 16 Megapixel front and back cameras at the same time, as well as record eye-catching videos with the Cinematic Aspect Ratio and Cinematic Filters. The V29 Lite brings a 120Hz AMOLED screen with a 300Hz touch sampling rate, which ensures smooth and responsive touch input, while the eye-protection feature with 2160Hz pulse-width modulation, reduces eye strain and fatigue during extended use. Its peak brightness is 1300 nits and supports super clear Full HD+ resolution, as well as DCI-P3 wide colour gamut. Its 60-degree curvature on both sides contributes to a comfortable grip, blending smoothly with the frame, and at the same time significantly reducing colour distortion on the edges, which is a common problem for ultra-large, curved screens.

Another feature which was previously reserved for flagship devices is super-fast charging. The latest in the vivo V series brings a large 5000-milliamp battery that can last easily more than a day, making it perfect for busy individuals who are always on the go. The 44W vivo FlashCharge feature makes topping up the battery a breeze, surpassing even the capabilities of the vivo flagship X60 Pro, which is charged with 33W.

The Extended RAM 3.0 feature ensures smooth multitasking, allowing users to switch between up to 36 simultaneous apps without lag or delay, by “borrowing” up to 8GB of memory from the available storage, in addition to the existing 12GB RAM. This feature is handy for those who use their phones for work or infotainment. Making sure the device has “enough poke” is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695, which enables reliable 5G internet connectivity. On the other hand, thanks to its 8-core CPU architecture and 6-nanometre process, this system-on-chip ensures lower power consumption and longer battery life.

The V29 Lite has been extensively tested in company R&D testing labs during trial production. Tests included resilience testing of the casing to daily scratches; The devices have been drop tested 32,000 times using different angles, tested in extreme environments between -20 and +50 Celsius, and put in storage between -40 and +75 Celsius. The USB ports have been tested by 6,000 times plugging and unplugging, and the IP54 rating makes it resistant to dust and water splashes from all angles, so it’s not afraid to get stuck in daily dirty or wet situations.

The sleek design of the V29 Lite is available in two colour options, the discreet and stylish Flare Black, and an expressive summer shade of Dreamy Gold. Both colours come with nano-scale photo etching patterns on the back cover, for a sleek look and feel, and thanks to a thickness of just 7,89 millimetres, and 177 grams weight, they won’t add bulk or weigh down a pocket or a purse. It runs the latest vivo Funtouch OS 13 based on the Android 13 operating system, which brings a smooth and personalised user experience and support for favourite apps and games. Consumers will also be able to rely on three years of guaranteed software updates, including maintenance releases and security updates, as well as two major build updates of the Android operating system.

The V29 Lite is available now at vivo retailers, operators, and official digital channels in a 12GB RAM (with 8GB extended RAM) + 256GB Storage guise, at a price of AED 1299.

Motorola Edge 50 Ultra Boasts Powerful Processor, Huge Storage, and Pantone Colours



Motorola is shaking things up in the premium phone market with the Edge 50 Ultra, a device boasting high-end specs, unique design elements, and a competitive price tag. The Edge 50 Ultra goes beyond just powerful hardware. It embodies Motorola’s “hello smARTphone” tagline by offering a phone that’s as pleasing to the eye as it is functional. The series boasts a “harmonious” design, featuring finishes like real wood, suede, and even a special edition “pearl polymer” crafted in Italy.

The phone celebrates its industry-first Pantone Validated camera and display with a special edition colour – the trendy Peach Fuzz, alongside Forest Grey (vegan leather) and Nordic Wood (real wood). A brushed aluminium frame and curved edges complete the sophisticated look and feel. Motorola has strategically focused on what matters most to users while keeping costs in check. The Edge 50 Ultra features a large 6.7-inch Super HD+ display with a super smooth 144Hz refresh rate, ideal for gamers. While it boasts a lower pixel density than some competitors, it prioritizes affordability without sacrificing a great viewing experience.

Similarly, the camera system skips the trendy periscope zoom lens but delivers a well-rounded setup. The main camera is a powerful 50MP Sony sensor with optical image stabilization, accompanied by a 50MP ultrawide sensor and a 64MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. Even the front-facing camera boasts a large 50MP sensor with autofocus, ensuring high-quality selfies and video calls.

Where the Edge 50 Ultra shines is its processing muscle and storage options. It packs the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, keeping pace with the top flagships. But it goes a step further by offering a staggering 512GB or even 1TB of storage, coupled with 12GB or a whopping 16GB of RAM. This is a remarkable feat at its price point.

The Edge 50 Ultra boasts a large 4,500mAh battery that should last a full day on a charge. But the real highlight is the charging speeds. The phone comes with a 125W charger that can refill the battery in about 20 minutes, and it even supports 50W wireless charging, putting it on par with leading competitors.

Motorola has layered its new Hello UX on top of stock Android 14. This interface offers a light touch, focusing on customization, intuitive gestures, and enhanced AI features through Moto AI. It prioritizes user experience without cluttering the stock Android experience. The Motorola Edge 50 Ultra will be available in the coming weeks in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania. The starting price for the 12GB/512GB variant is 699 EUR (approximately AED 2700).
