Vivo has started sending media invites for an event on 27th April. It is reportedly launching a new smartphone named Vivo V5s in India. It is going to be an improved version of the Vivo V5 released in November 2016. Vivo V5 is a selfie-focused smartphone with a 20MP front camera. So needless to say, Vivo V5s will also be a selfie-centered smartphone. The hashtag “#perfectselfie” on the media invite confirms the same.
We are assuming that Vivo V5s will house a Qualcomm processor instead of a MediaTek processor. Also, the internal storage may be bumped up to 64GB. The front camera may not get any enhancement; however, there is a bright chance that rear camera may get an upgrade to 16MP. At this moment, you can take all these speculations with a grain of salt. We will keep you updated if we came across any developments on Vivo V5s specifications and price.
To recap, Vivo V5 sports a 5.5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) IPS LCD display with 2.5D curved display and protected by Gorilla Glass 3. At 1280 x 720 pixels, you get a pixel density of ~267 PPI.
The V5 runs on an Octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and coupled with Mali T860 GPU. It comes with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage which can be further expanded up to 128 GB. Camera optics include a 13 MP rear camera and a 20 MP selfie camera with Moonlight flash. The Moonlight flash reduces strain on your eyes.
It sports a Fingerprint scanner which also doubles up as a home button. It runs on Vivo’s FunTouch OS 2.6 on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, USB OTG. It is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery.
Sensors include Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Magnetic, Gyroscope, Proximity, and E-compass sensor. It also features a Hi-Fi audio chip for enhanced audio experience. It is slim at 7.5mm of thickness and weighs 154 grams.
