Vivo V5 Plus has been launched in India priced at Rs 27,980. As we expected, Vivo has gone ballistic with the selfie camera and this time around, we get to witness a dual front camera which Vivo claims to be the first in the industry (although, it isn’t. Remember the Lenovo Vibe S1?). The Vivo V5 Plus will be up for sale from February 1 and will be up for preorder starting from January 24.
The Vivo V5 Plus comes equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD display along with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and narrow bezels which the Vivo claims is crafted for better ergonomics. Powering the device is an Octa-core Snapdragon 625 clocked at 2GHz and paired with 4GB RAM. On the storage front, the Vivo V5 Plus offers 64GB of onboard memory.
The camera arrangements on this phone include a 20-Megapixel dual front camera (Sony IMX376) with f/2.0 along with a moonlight LED flash. Furthermore, the V5 Plus also sports a second 8-Megapixel camera that helps in achieving a better depth of fields. It’s worth mentioning that the Vivo V5 Plus uses only the 20-Megapixel sensor while taking selfie photos and the 8-Megapixel sensor pops up on demand when one switches on the bokeh mode. This mode maintains the focus on your face and blurs the surrounding all the while creating a depth of field in the photos. The app also lets you fiddle with the focus options even after taking the shot.
Also, the dual front camera is capable of shooting panorama and records videos at 1080p. Moving on, the primary sensor on this phone is a 16-Megapixel unit with PDAF, autofocus, and a LED flash. The camera is capable of recording slow-mo, 4K videos and also time lapse. The Vivo V5 Plus runs on Funtouch OS 3.0 and is equipped with a fingerprint sensor.
