Splendid cameras to capture your perfect moments
vivo phones are known for their camera prowess, and these phones are no different. The vivo T1 Pro 5G comes with the company’s AI Triple Camera setup, which includes a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP Macro shooter. The main camera does incredibly well in daylight scenarios, capturing even minute details and delivering excellent dynamic range. Its large f/1.79 aperture ensures that low-light images have ample details, making the phone a great companion for late-night outings. These images are also aided by vivo’s Super Night Mode, which denoises the images and subtly adds light to your nighttime shots to make them look professional and beautiful.
The T1 Pro 5G’s 8MP ultra-wide camera boasts a 117-degree field of view that gives a completely new perspective to whatever subject you’re photographing. The same goes for its Macro camera, which lets you get as close as 4cms to your subjects. This phone also comes with 4K video recording support and a 16MP selfie camera.

That said, the display on the T1 Pro 5G has a few more aces up its sleeve. Firstly, it’s got a higher 90Hz refresh rate that enables silky smooth scrolling and buttery transitions.

Long battery life along with fast charging
Large batteries have become more common in smartphones these days, but not all phones in the price segments of these devices offer such high-end fast charging technologies. This is yet another attribute of the vivo T1 Pro 5G and the vivo T1 44W that sets them apart. The T1 Pro 5G features a 4,700mAh battery that guarantees a full day’s usage with ease.

Additionally, the rear surface gets a glitter AG texture and 400nm super-strong nano-coating, contributing to its grip and dazzling appearance.
