Just a little over a week ago, the vivo V25 Pro was quietly listed on the brand’s Malaysian website with a missing price tag. Now, the upper-midrange smartphone has been officially launched, coming with a larger display than the standard V25, a more recent SoC, and a fun backplate.
Sporting a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with curved edges, it boasts a resolution of 2376×1080 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate, which is an improvement from its vanilla counterpart. The phone comes in black and blue, with the latter being made out of fluorite glass that shifts from light blue to dark blue when exposed to direct sunlight or UV light — a feature we’ve seen in previous vivo phones that allows you to make creative imprints.
The vivo V25 Pro runs on a MediaTek Dimensity 1300 and is only sold in a single configuration with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, as well as 8GB of extended RAM. The device has support for dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2, and NFC, as well as slots for dual-SIM cards.
For photography, the phone is equipped with a triple-camera setup on the back, made of a 64MP primary camera with OIS, an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP macro lens. The punch hole cutout on the display contains a 32MP selfie shooter, which surprisingly has autofocus.
Powering the V25 Pro is a large 4,830mAh battery with 66W wired charging, which the company claims will charge the phone to 40% in 15 minutes. For audio, it is equipped with dual stereo speakers.
The vivo V25 Pro ships with Funtouch OS 12 based on Android 12 and is available now in both colours for RM2,499. It can be purchased on vivo’s online shop, Lazada store, Shopee store, PG Mall, Go Shop, and TikTok. From 24 September to 23 October, those who purchase the new phone will get free wireless earbuds, a one-year extended warranty, and one-year screen crack protection.
