Vivo V5 Plus with industry’s first dual front-facing camera launched at Rs. 27,980

Chinese smartphone brand, Vivo, today announced their selfie-centric phone, the Vivo V5 Plus in India at Rs. 27,980. The V5 Plus was first unveiled at the Vivo V5 launch last month in Mumbai, and it was launched globally last week.

The company was teasing the phone in all the social media platforms and eventually announced the phone at an event today in New Delhi. The major highlight of the phone will be its dual front-facing camera. With the V5 Plus, Vivo is taking the selfie camera technology to a whole new level.

The V5 Plus has a 20MP standard sensor on the front, coupled with another 8MP sensor to capture the insane depth of field. Also, the phone packs in some decent specifications to justify the price tag.

As seen on its sibling Vivo V5, the V5 Plus retains the 5.5-inch display, but the resolution is upgraded to 1080*1920 pixels, and the screen is an IPS LCD panel. Under the hood, the V5 Plus comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC aided with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Sadly, the Indian variant of the phone doesn’t have support for microSD card slot, which means that you can’t expand the storage. Incidentally, the V5 Plus is the costliest smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset.

Connectivity wise, the V5 Plus boasts of 4G LTE (VoLTE), Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and a GPS chip. The smartphone runs the company’s in-house Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android Marshmallow. The company hasn’t revealed any plans for the Android Nougat update, though.

This entire package is backed by a 3160mAh battery and has support for fast charging as well. The Vivo V5 Plus also has a fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button of the phone.

The handset will be available for pre-booking from tomorrow (January 24), and the first sale will happen on February 1. The phone will be distributed offline as well, but the availability date hasn’t confirmed yet. We will update this post once there is any official information regarding the offline availability.
