It does seem as though smartphone manufacturers from China are starting to come into their own, as we have witnessed with this morning’s Oppo N1 launch in Beijing, China. Gotta love that camera module on the Oppo N1 for sure, but then again, another Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Vivo, looks set to make a splash in the high end market with one rather interesting hardware specification – a rumored 1/1.7-inch, 20.2MP CMOS sensor that will feature an aperture of f/2.0, alongside a Nikon EXPEED chip.
Any shutterbug worth his or her salt would be able to figure out that this is one impressive sounding hardware specification, at least when it comes to “paper qualifications” for a smartphone with a camera built right inside of it. Other than that, there were no other whispers of what Vivo could throw into their flagship device, although we do look forward to leaks that should arrive in the future. What do you think that Vivo should include into what is most probably their future flagship device? A Nikon SLR chip within would certainly go some way in making the Vivo smartphone worth more than just a second look, but to fall under one’s serious consideration for a fantastic mobile photo taking experience.
