After being rumored to be the first transparent smartphone, Vivo has finally announced the Vivo X7 and X7 Plus in China. For starters, they are not transparent smartphones. All of their specs and designs were leaked and confirmed earlier itself and the unveiling confirms all of this. The smartphone duo has been launched targeting the selfie-centric crowd. As the title of this post indicates, the front camera on both the phones is a 16MP shooter. If that’s not enough to take the perfect selfie, I don’t know what is.
The phones have a host of features that are also available on the iPhone. The most prominent feature is the Night Shift feature, which removes all the blue color from the screen to reduce the strain on the eyes. Then there is the Moonlight feature, which uses the whole screen as a flash to enhance selfies in low-light conditions. The whole screen flashes to improve the lighting. Lastly, there is ID Wake which enables the user to double tap the screen to wake the phone.
