Yesterday, Vivo introduced the Vivo V5 during an event in India. It is geared towards selfie-fans that do not need a lot of processing power or high screen resolution but do not want to compromise on the selfie camera. While the resolution of the 5.5 inch IPS-panel, that is protected with Gorilla Glas only reaches 1,280 x 720 pixels, Vivo integrated a 20 megapixel Sony IMX 376 sensor featuring a 1/2.78 sensor size and an aperture of F/2.0 into the front of the phone. The camera also supports Moonlight glow, which can make your selfies look better by making sure they appear brightly lit. The rear side of the 7.55 mm thick metal case features a 13 megapixel camera of unknown origin with Phase Detection Autofocus.
A fingerprint sensor is available at the front. The spec-sheet currently lacks detailed information so we cannot give you more details about the processor except for the fact that Vivo decided on a 64 bit octa-core-processor. We also do not know anything about the WiFi and Bluetooth module but we can tell you, that Vivo only supports LTE-bands 1, 3, 5 and 40 on the V5 which will most likely not be enough outside of Asia. The AKG 4346-DAC is said to offer superior audio quality and a SNR of more than 115 dB. Android 6.0 is preinstalled with FunTouch OS 2.6 on top. Vivo is asking $265 for the phone when it becomes available in India after November 26th.
