Vivo unveils V1+ imaging and display chip, to debut with VX80 series on April 25

Vivo has announced a new imaging chip that is bound to enhance the display and imaging capabilities of its next flagships Vivo X80 series. In comparison to V1, the V1+ now includes support for the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 platform, in addition to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Over 300 Vivo and MediaTek employees have been working on the V1+ for 350 days to fully adapt it to the Dimensity 9000 platform. With fine tuning of its noise reduction algorithm, the V1+ can take night shots in situations where there is less than 1 lux of ambient lighting. Additionally, Vivo announced improvements in image brightness by 16 percent and white balance accuracy by 12 percent.

The new XDR Photo high dynamic range display technology can further boost the brightness of the photo’s prominent portions by up to 350 percent. Images will appear “brighter and more transparent” with its clearance, allowing users to see more details.

It can enable more games to run at 90fps or 120fps, and it might replace the Pixelworks display technology seen on Vivo and iQOO devices in the future.

In addition, Vivo is also implementing algorithms to optimize CPU resource allocation, reduce heat generation and boost the efficiency of the Dimensity 9000.
