Lenovo announced additional features for its VIBE X2 smartphone, which will significantly bolster the device’s overall video-shooting capability and performance. Existing users can look forward to enjoying a new Facial Beautifier function, as well as slow-motion recording, video playback magnification and high dynamic range support. All these are now available through a software upgrade, which can be downloaded from Lenovo websites.
Video Facial Beautifier
Thanks to the VIBE X2’s powerful MediaTek 6595m LTE True8Core™ processor, facial beautification is now being incorporated for videography, ushering a new era of convenience and visual perfection. Not only can this function intelligently remove facial blemishes such as wrinkles and freckles to create mesmerizing videos, it is also fully automated unlike most complicated and costly video-editing suites.
With 120fps slow-motion recording, users can capture 4 times more action than regular videos, together with stunning 720p HD clarity, making the VIBE X2 ideal for shooting fast-paced sports and to recreate interesting slow-mo effects. Moreover, it is possible to view these clips directly utilizing a preloaded video player, which touts the unique ability to support up to 16 times slow motion playback.
Video playback magnification
Other nifty features of the software player include 4K compatibility, in addition to magnification and scrolling functions. Magnification can be easily activated during live playback with just a pinch of two fingers, revealing the astonishing intricate detail that accompanies HD and 4K content. Meanwhile, by dragging their fingers across the screen, viewers can also effortlessly scroll to other parts of the video.
High Dynamic Range (HDR)
To dramatically bolster overall contrast and dynamism of video recordings, HDR processing is used to interweave multiple renditions of a video frame at varying exposure rates. More importantly, this can lead to noticeably punchier visuals, accentuated depth and shadow detail. HDR also works during video preview, too, delivering an instant feedback for aspiring film makers and discerning enthusiasts.
