In a special event in China, Vivo announced its newest technology – Ai-powered Super HDR, which it claims can significantly help in producing better quality photos and videos with better detail, color, and tone.

Unlike the typical HDR, Super HDR merges more frames to resolve issues caused by strong dark and light tones in photos. It also intelligently merges these frames, to the benefit of low-light photography.

  • Super HDR’s dynamic range can reach up to 14 EV. It can also capture up to 12 frames in a single press of the shutter button, significantly more compared to standard HDR. This in turn provides more options when it comes to merging frames to light up all the parts of a photo.
  • Using complex AI algorithms, Super HDR intelligently adapts to different scenes by selecting and merging frames to render details, and optimizes shadows to ensure a balanced an natural look.
  • While regular HDR sacrifices lighting for the subject in focus to produce a better-lit photo, Super HDR uses smart scene detection to ensure a balance in lighting for the background and the subject.

Advantages of Super HDR


Highly adaptable

Super HDR 3

Super HDR can guarantee good quality shots in a range of lighting scenarios, even in challenging ones.

Accurate and smart exposure selection

Super HDR 4

Able to capture up to 12 frames in a single press of the shutter button, there are now more options for Super HDR’s smart frame selecting strategies to deliver the correct exposure to every part of the photo.

Intelligent identification

Super HDR 1

With AI-powered scene detection, each part of the photo can be identified and processed separately. This ensures that even complex photos come out detailed, clear, and with accurate colors.

Natural looking results

Super HDR 5

By reorganizing and optimizing the highlights and shadows of a scene when merging frames, you get tones that naturally match the original scene.

Perfectly lit portraits

Super HDR 2

Super HDR is able to prioritize lighting for the subject in the photo, and automatically adjust the background exposure to create a natural looking portrait.
