Smartphone with 32 Mpix camera

Increasingly better devices installed on smartphones have made these devices are slowly replacing the compact digital cameras, perhaps soon to be able to match professional cameras. The first step in this direction is the Vivo X5Pro featuring up to a 32 megapixel camera.

On May 6, the official presentation of X5Pro, the latest Brazilian smartphone from Vivo, will take place. The device will be equipped with a 6-inch touch screen and an eight-core, 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor. It will also get 3 GB of RAM and a retina scanner, while the power supply will provide a 3500 mAh battery. The operating system will be Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company's Funtouch IU overlay.

These are the parameters that show us that we are dealing with mid-range hardware, but the most interesting component of the new product is the front camera. The manufacturer installed a camera module of up to 32 megapixels there. I point out that this is not a rear camera, but a front camera, which is usually used for video calls and selfie.

This does not mean, however, that the Vivo X5Pro will take picture quality comparable to high end cameras. Such resolution will be obtained not by means of hardware but by special algorithms, which will appropriately extend the photographed image.
