Vivo is celebrating IPL (Indian Premier League) 10th anniversary with a special Vivo V5 Plus Limited Edition that will be offered in matte black color. However, the specifications will remain the same as that of the normal variant Vivo V5 Plus. The Vivo V5 Plus Limited Edition was launched in an event at Hyderabad and will be available from 10th of April.
A quick recap, Vivo V5 Plus IPL Edition 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.
Imaging arrangements on this smartphone include the 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.
