The Vivo V5 Plus launched a few weeks ago and as at the time of this writing, the phone is already out there, selling at a price of Rs 27,980.
Those in India can now have a chance to enjoy this selfie expert, but the phone has been available in Malaysia and other Asian countries for some time now. Last year, the same company launched the Vivo V5 and as you can already guess, the V5 Plus is an upgrade to the former.
Unlike other mere upgrades, the Vivo V5 Plus is a massive one when compared to its predecessor. This can also be reflected in the massive price tag of about $415 when converted, but for sure, who won’t love the selfie camera that this phone comes with?
In case you didn’t know, the Vivo V5 Plus has a massive dual-lens camera for selfies. This shooter packs a 20MP lens and another 8MP lens. These two work together to deliver the best shots from any possible angles. If anything, this is the major selling point of this phone – you won’t find a lot of phones out there with a dual-lens camera on the front. But this is not all that the V5 Plus offers.
The back camera has a great 16MP shooter that should also deliver impressive photos. In terms of display, the phone has a roomy 5.5-inch screen that comes with a 1080p resolution. To keep it safe from scratches and cracks, the Chinese OEM went for the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5, a feature you won’t find on many phones at the moment, including the flagship models. Under the hood, the Vivo V5 Plus ships with a speedy Snapdragon 625 processor that is clocked at a speed of 2.0GHz.
This SD625 processor is paired with a huge 4GB RAM and decent storage of 64GB, but there is no room for microSD card storage. Android Marshmallow runs the show out of the box, but there is a FuntouchOS 3.0 running on top of the stock version. Due to its huge size, it also gets a huge 3160mAh battery that is supported by fast charging technology. Despite being a midranger, the Vivo V5 Plus also packs a fingerprint scanner on the home button, something that is slowly leaving the flagship arena and becoming common in the midrange market.
