A tweet from Vivo's India unit (via The Verge) reveals that the Vivo V15 Pro will feature a pop-up selfie camera. While still a novelty, it was the Vivo NEX S that brought the pop-up camera to consumers. There is one big change however; unlike the 8MP pop-up selfie camera on the NEX S, the sensor for the V15 Pro will weigh in at 32MP. There is speculation that the sensor employed on the pop-up is Samsung's GD1, which is known for its ability to be deployed in small spaces. The sensor supports HDR and electronic image stabilization. Another feature that the V15 Pro will take from the NEX S is an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Vivo V15 Pro will be unveiled on February 20th, which pretty much guarantees that you won't hear much about it. The phone will be unwrapped the same day that Samsung is holding its 2019 Unpacked event. That means Vivo will have to compete with media attention with the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ introductions. In addition, Sammy is expected to trot out its long-awaited foldable Galaxy F device. It's as though a rerun of My Mother the Car was going up against the Super Bowl for television ratings.

Speaking of Samsung, the company is reportedly testing out its own pop-up selfie camera for the Galaxy A90 mid-range phone. This model will supposedly replace the well-spec'd Galaxy A9 (2018) and its quad-camera setup on back.

The advantage of having a pop-up camera is that it can replace a notch or punch-hole camera, leave a phone's screen intact and allow for the thin bezel look that drives consumers wild these days. On the other hand, those with such a feature on their phone need to worry about how long the mechanism will continue to work for, the additional (albeit small) additional call on battery power, and the lack of an Ingress Protection (IP) rating. Is having a thin bezel, no notch or punch-hole worth the lack of protection against dust or water?
