Vivo India's Twitter account announced the Chinese phonemaker's new Vivo V15 Pro smartphone, which comes with a pop-up selfie camera.

That pop-up camera itself has more megapixels than most rear smartphone cameras, clocking in at 32 megapixels. Indeed, most smartphone cameras these days only offer about 12 megapixels, which is less than half than that of the V15 Pro's selfie camera.

On the back of the phone, the V15 Pro's triple-lens rear camera has a huge 48 megapixel count for its main lens, 8 megapixels for its secondary lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor for enhancing portrait mode shots.

While the megapixel count is impressive, it doesn't necessarily translate to good photos. There are several other factors like software and the quality of the camera components that make the biggest difference in photo quality. But it certainly doesn't hurt.

Vivo will be announcing the V15 Pro officially with more details about the phone on February 20. That's the same day as Samsung's Unpacked event, where the Galaxy S10 is expected to be announced.
