Limited edition of a particular smartphone is becoming a norm these days. After OnePlus launching not one, but two limited editions of the OnePlus 3T, it is now turn for its Chinese counterpart, Vivo to launch the special (limited) edition of the Vivo V5 Plus. Vivo has sent out media invites for an event to be held on April 4.
As you can see in the image above, the invite states that Vivo is launching the phone on the eve of IPL turning ten. For the uninitiated, Vivo is the official sponsor of the Indian Premier League for two years 2016 and 2017. As of now, there’s no information with us on what the limited edition V5 Plus features, but it’s highly possible that it will be based on IPL itself or something related to the India’s favorite sport, Cricket.
To recall, the Vivo V5 Plus was launched in India back in January and is the industry’s first smartphone to boast dual front-facing cameras. Speaking about the specifications of the V5 Plus, it features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The screen of the device is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 technology.
Under-the-hood is a 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, coupled with Adreno 506 GPU. The phone comes in only one variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The V5 Plus boots Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android Marshmallow.
As said earlier, the front-facing camera is the highlight of the V5 Plus. It features a 20MP lens coupled with an 8MP lens with an aperture of f/2.0. While the 20MP camera is used to capture regular shots, the 8MP sensor will capture shallow depth of field to add more bokeh effect to the photos.
A 3160mAh battery backs the entire package, and the phone also comes with fast charging technology. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and a micro USB port. The phone is priced at Rs. 27,990 in India.
