Vivo, the Chinese company that has been pretty active in the smartphone market introducing a number of selfie-centric devices, today announced the new V5s with a 20MP selfie camera. The device is priced at Rs.18,990 and will be available in stores and on Flipkart from 6th May 2017 onwards.
V5s has a metal body with 5.5″ 720p IPS display and is powered by the MediaTek MT6750 Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD slot. The phone runs on the company’s Funtouch OS 3.0 which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has a 3000mAh battery. We have a fast fingerprint sensor, support for Hi-fi music and 4G VoLTE support as well.
The V5s has a 13MP rear camera with PDAF but it is the front camera that steals the show here. We get a 20MP front camera with the moonlight flash for capturing stunning selfies even at low-light. The front camera has the Face Beauty 6.0 feature to enhance the selfies and also features various filters and options.
Mr. Kent Cheng, CEO, Vivo India, said, “After launching the Vivo V5Plus Limited edition, we are thrilled to introduce yet another masterpiece, the Vivo V5s. Through the launch of this device, Vivo aims to provide the best selfie camera phone in the market. Following the overwhelming response for V5, we have equipped the V5s with enhanced storage capacity and an improved operating system.
Today, aesthetics like colour and design play a vital role in customers’ purchase decision. As a young and dynamic brand, keeping up to customer demands is essential and a major focus for Vivo. We are hopeful that it will be a great success again.”
The phone will be available in two color variants – matte black and crown gold. Hopefully we will be doing a review of V5s soon and let you know the overall experience.
