According to Vivo, the portrait camera features a 50mm focal length “for more realistic and vivid portraits” as well as significantly increasing the pixel count from the previous 12MP portrait camera found on the V29. The wide-angle camera is the V series’ first to come equipped with Auto Focus and introduces an AI Group Portrait mode that Vivo says will work for groups of up to 30 people.
