Vivo has launched the V3 and the V3 Max for the Indian market priced at Rs 17,980 and Rs 23,980 respectively. These phones come with the split screen feature which would allow users to multi-task between two apps without switching from one app to another, something that the Android N will be supporting natively.
The V3 Max comes with a 5.5-inch FHD display and a 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass. Like most of the other premium phones these days the V3 Max comes with a metal body. Under the hood lies a Snapdragon 652 coupled with 4GB of RAM. On the storage front the device offers 32GB of onboard memory and a microSD card slot than can further accommodate up to 128GB. The V3 Max runs on Funtouch OS 2.5 based on Android 5.1 and is backed by a 3000mAh battery. Imaging department in the V3 Max is taken care by a 13-Megapixel primary sensor and a 8-Megapixel secondary sensor. The V3 Max also supports Qualcomm QC 2.0 fast charging.
The V3 is a slightly toned down version of the V3 Max and as a result it gets a change of heart. The Vivo V3 is powered by the Snapdragon 616 mated with 3GB of RAM and it also comes equipped with a smaller 5-inch HD display. Most of the other details including the storage, connectivity options and the camera sensors remain the same for both the smartphones. That being said, the battery in the V3 shapes up in the form of a smaller 2,550mAh capacity.
Both the Vivo V3 and the V3 Max will be sold across multiple offline sales channel and will also be available online. Vivo is betting big on Cricket in India and is the official title sponsor of the Indian Premiere League. No wonder they have timed the launch of V3 and V3 Max as the IPL kickstarts on April 9th.
