The Garmin video camera has been a staple of the Garmin line for some time now, and now it will be available on a range of different smartphones starting in 2017.
The new Garmin Vivosmart, which is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor, will reportedly be the first smartphone in the Garmin lineup to be powered by this new chipset, which means the camera is now able to take images with higher quality than it could before.
While the Garmin VivoX2 still sports the same 2-megapixel camera sensor that it has since its debut, the VivosX2 is a bit smaller and has a bigger sensor to make up for it.
The Vivos X2 comes with a 13-megapixels camera sensor and is powered via a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, meaning it will have access to all of the latest imaging technology.
Garmin has been aggressively working to expand its video capabilities with its Vivos line over the past few years, with the company announcing new features such as the Vivio X2’s first HDR mode in 2013, and it is hoped that the Vivo X2 will deliver the same type of high-quality images as the Garmin X10, Vivo Pro, and Vivos Pro 3.
The Vivos Vivos camera is one of the top-end camera sensors in the market, so expect a similar camera experience on the ViviosX2, but it will also include support for image stabilization.
The Garmin Vivs X2 features a 12-megaflop processor, but that processor will be able to handle the additional features found on the new VivosVital Pro, VivosPro3, and the Vivor Pro 3 (the Vivos V2 and Vivor V3 are not compatible).
The VivsX2 will also have 4GB of RAM and a 1.8GHz quad-core Snapdragon 820 CPU, which will allow for faster processing speed, though the Snapdragon 820 chip will be limited to Adreno 530 GPUs and 8GB of storage, which are both still very high-end devices.
The camera sensor is one that we expect will remain in the Vivas line for a while, but if you are a fan of the camera on the Garmin Fenix 3, you may want to keep an eye out for this device as it may not be quite as affordable as the current offerings from Garmin.
