Want to know the features and specifications of the latest Vivo V5 smartphone? This mini article offers you complete details on features, price and deals on Vivo V5.
The Vivo V5 has been specifically targeted at the selfie lovers. It aims to come up with a fierce competition to Oppo F1.
The phone comes with a metallic unibody construction. The rounded edges give it a premium look. You get access to a nano SIM slot. The Home button has the finger print sensor embedded within. It is flanked by capacitive action buttons on either side. The logo on the rear has been embedded within the metal and thus enhances the look of the device. Vivo V5 comfortable to handle, yet feels a little slippery.
Vivo V5 has a 5.5 inch IPS LCD display. It offers you a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The pixel density reads 267 ppi. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. Vivo has stated that the screen can filter blue light, thereby reducing eye strain while using the phone.
The smartphone is powered by Mediatek 6750 octa core processor. The processor is 64 bit compatible thereby ensuring effective performance. The clock speed is a comfortable 1.5 GHz. You get access to 32 GB of internal storage, coupled with a massive 4 GB of RAM. That should go a long way in efficient multitasking abilities. There is expandable storage option available, but at the cost of dual SIM functionality. The phone has a hybrid slot and as such you need to choose between either dual SIM compatibility or the expanded storage. The storage capacity can be expanded upto 128 GB.
This is where ViVo V5 excels. It has the best in class camera configuration. You have access to a 13 MP rear camera with usual features. What it stays ahead is with the massive 20 MP camera on the front. The phone should be a great option for selfie lovers. There is a Moonlight Glow flash feature which brings up natural glow on the faces captured. Vivo goes on record that Vivo V5 is the first smartphone in the world to have a 20 MP front camera with selfie flash. It has Face Beauty mode for better selfies with reduced blemishes and enhanced quality. The rear camera supports HD video recording. It also comes with slow and fast motion video recording ability.
The Vivo V5 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There is no word on the possibility to upgrade to Android Nougat, but we assume that the phone would be upgrade-able. It features Smart Screen Split feature which is equivalent to what we see in Samsung devices. The phone comes preinstalled with apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, and the core Google apps among others.
Battery and other features
You have a 3000 mAh non removable battery. We assume you should get a day's backup quite easily. USB Type C port along with microUSB 2.0 support makes it both contemporary and traditional at the same time. One of the most demanded feature - USB OTG - is supported.
