It seems that cellphones from the BBK group, especially Vivo, are starting to realize that playing high specs, especially gaming phones, has been crushed by Xiaomi troops, including the black shark whose chipset has been playing on the Snapdragon series 8 since its inception.
Especially now that we see the development of the Black Shark 4 Pro, it has carried the latest Qualcomm series 8 processor, the Snapdragon 888, and is even supported by a two-layer liquid cooling system.
As for the Black Shark 4, the chipset used is also Snapdragon 870, you could say this is the chipset used by the Poco F3.
Especially the price of the Black Shark 4 with the lowest ram 6/128 in the range of Rp. 5.5 million and the highest 12/256 at Rp. 7.3 million.
As for the Black Shark 4 Pro, the lowest price with 8/256 ram is around Rp. 8.8 million, then for the highest spec, 16/512, it is around Rp. 11.7 million.
Vivo is aware that it is the X series that can only reduce the ability of Black Shark with the same chipset, where Vivo has spawned the Vivo X60 Pro+ where the price range is around 10.8 million for the 8GB/128GB variant.
Then for the 12GB/256GB variant, it is priced at around Rp. 13 million. The price drop is more expensive when compared to the Black Shark 4 Pro.
Even the highest Vivo V series at this time is Vivo V21 which was officially launched on May 24, 2021, the price is around Rp. 5.7 million.
The fall is more expensive when compared to the Black Shark 4, the lowest variant, even coupled with the Poco F3, the Vivo price is considered overpriced.
Why do many people think it’s overpriced?
Especially the Mi fans, they are loyal fans of Xiaomi who see Vivo a bit irresponsible when it comes to making smartphones, especially in the mid-range price class.
Because the chipset presented by Vivo is only in the same class as the Mediatek Dimensity 800U 5G chipset.
Here, of course, the performance is far from Xiaomi which has brought Snapdragon 870, because the Mediatek Dimensity 800U chipset is considered equivalent to the Snapdragon 730G.
But Vivo doesn’t want to sell crazy performance, let alone to support gamers, they prioritize selling cameras.
Moreover, Vivo has collaborated with Zeiss, you could say they are the best lens manufacturers currently in the world. So Sony, Nokia, Rollei, and Hasselblad use Zeiss technology for their optics.
Although this technology is only embedded in the X series on Vivo, for the V series they do not want to be half-hearted in fixing their cameras.
So the Vivo V21 is also embedded with Dual Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on the rear camera as well as the selfie camera.
It seems that Vivo wants to pursue this type of digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera, although it can’t be equal but the photo shots can be said to be decent.
Is it possible to produce photos equivalent to the Canon EOS 4000D camera?
Because as a replacement for the Canon EOS 1300D camera, this camera is suitable for beginners who want to learn photography, with autofocus up to 9 points and this sensor can make images 19x wider, not broken when zoomed this camera is in the price range of Rp. 3,675,000 – Rp. 5. 200,000, almost the same as the price offered by Vivo V21.
