Back in April 2017, Chinese brand Vivo launched the selfie-centered Vivo V5s smartphone in India for Rs. 18,990. Initially, the device was made available in only two colours- Crown Gold and Matte Black. And today, the vendor has launched a new Energetic Blue colour variant of the V5s.
The device will retail for Rs. 18,990 in the country, however, as a launch offer, the device is available at Rs. 17,990 in Flipkart. Furthermore, Flipkart is also offering up to Rs. 17,000 discount with the V5s if you exchange your old smartphone to purchase the Vivo V5s.
The device will be available in the offline market as well. The highlight of the Vivo V5s (First Impressions) is the 20MP Sony IMX376 front-facing camera with 1/2.78-inch sensor, f/2.0 aperture and 5p lens. The device takes design cues from its bigger sibling Vivo V5 Plus with U-type antenna bands.
The smartphone also has a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash, PDAF, and f/2.2 aperture. Connectivity options in the device include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and micro USB port. The smartphone also has support for USB OTG.
The V5s has a 5.5-inch display protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass. It comes with a dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip for audiophiles. Also, the V5s comes with two months of free Saavn subscription.
The V5s is powered by a 64-bit Octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC, mated with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The storage is further expandable up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card. The device boots Funtouch OS 3.0, which comes with features such as app clone with which you can create a clone of an app, same as the MIUI’s dual apps feature.
As you can see with the above specifications, it is quite similar to the Vivo V5, but the storage on the phone has been bumped to 64GB. Vivo is also adding the Cricket theme to the V5s. It is fuelled by the 3000mAh battery with fast charging technology.
