Photo Announcement. Vivo V25 Pro is almost (in places) a flagship smartphone

Vivo introduced a couple of models today - Vivo V25 and Vivo V25 Pro

This news is about the older device of the series, about Vivo V25 Pro. You can read about the younger here.

Vivo V25 Pro has a weaker front camera compared to its younger brother, an identical set of rear cameras. Otherwise, it is stronger on all fronts.

The chipset is quite rare, MediaTek Dimensity 1300. Powerful, although not up to modern flagships. In AnTuTu we are waiting for seven hundred thousand points. Well, or around six hundred, if you're not very lucky.

There is a lot of memory. 8 or12 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. No memory card support.

AMOLED screen, but not LTPO - i.e. There is no dynamic refresh rate. Although the maximum possible frequency is very high - 120 Hz. Diagonal 6.56" (105 cm²), resolution 1080x2376 (398 ppi).

A medium-capacity battery, and the capacity is surprisingly non-circular - 4830 mAh. Charging is very fast, 66 W.

There are three rear cameras, 64+8+2 MP. In essence, only the first one is interesting, because it is equipped with optical stabilization. The other two are trivial wide and macro.

Front cameraExperienced. And the resolution is decent - as much as 32 MP. And even autofocus is available.

There will be an NFC module, but not in all countries (in particular, it is not available in India). The fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen. There is no standard audio output.

Vivo V25 Pro announced globally, but I only know the price for India so far. ₹35,999 (₽27,800, $452) and ₹39,999 (₽30,900, $503) for the 8+128 and 12+256 GB versions, respectively.

The smartphone has already fallen into the hands of some English-speaking reviewers. I hide several video reviews under the cat.
