Vivo V5 Plus, the world's first front-facing dual camera smartphone has received one more price cut of Rs. 3,000, after the recent Rs. 2,000 price cut. The smartphone was initially launched for Rs. 27,990, which was a steep price for the phone, but then came down to Rs. 25,990, and finally it's now retailing for Rs. 22,990. The price cut is already effective in e-commerce sites and even the retail stores.
Vivo, back in January announced the V5 Plus smartphone in India, and it was the first dual selfie camera device back then. Thanks to Oppo, we now have a few more dual selfie camera phones. The Chinese company also launched a special Matte Black edition of the V5 Plus in April this year.
The major highlight of the phone is 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. At the launch, 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. For the Rs. 22,990 price tag, the V5 Plus is a very good option to look out for the in sub Rs. 25,000 price bracket.
