What Do We Know About the Vivo V5?

Written by Andrew Maxwell

Vivo has recently announced the launch of its V5 phone amid great interest. But what have we learned about the Chinese company’s new baby?

For starters, the launch name gives us more than a few hints – the full title is ‘the Vivo V5 20 Megapixel Selfie Camera’. Those who have paid attention will have been able to deduce that this latest model is based around – you got it – a 20-megapixel camera designed for selfies. This is obviously great news for a generation of folks who don’t seem to be able to tie their shoelaces without uploading a photo of it to various social media platforms.

Product Highlights
  • Android 6.0
  • 5.5 inch display (1280 x 720)
  • MT6750 Octa Core 1.5GHz
  • 4GB RAM / 32GB ROM
  • Dual SIM
  • microSD card slot (up to 128GB)
  • 13MP rear camera / 20MP front camera
  • 3000mAh battery

Vivo’s announcement, made in India, is encased by a one-piece metal body, that should see it attract a lot of interest. Looking a bit deeper, the phone’s processor is a MediaTek MT6750 eight-core processor, and it has 4GB of RAM, plus 32GB in storage space.

The phone’s rear camera boasts a decent 13-megapixel sensor. It runs Android 6.0 and has a AK4376 sound decoder. It runs on a 3000mAh battery.

Pre-orders are being taken now, and the phone is expected to be launched in India on November 27th. Those who enjoy taking selfies will most likely be impressed by the phone’s numerous selfie-oriented features, such as the ‘moonlight selfie’, along with the specs offered by this latest release. If all of that turns out to be the case, there should be plenty of takers on the $200 offer.
