20MP Front Camera-Equipped Vivo V5 is Coming to the Philippines Next Week


The "Perfect Selfie" smartphone, as Vivo claims, is coming to the Philippine market starting next week. Vivo V5 it is. And it sports a whopping 20MP front facing camera all equipped with Selfie Moonlight and Beauty Mode 6.0 features to bring the selfie taking experience to an even higher level. According to the Vivo Philippines' Facebook page, the phone will be officially announced on November 23, 2016.

Prior to this, we had the "Selfie Expert" in OPPO F1s smartphone which thankfully I was able to try and surprised to realize that its selfie expert campaign really works. Now having a tag line that says "Perfect Selfie" is such a heavy word to claim, unless of course the V5 smartphone can really produce perfect selfie photos. We will certainly find out if the device is worthy of the tag line once it is officially launched in the Philippines and reviews are released.

Thank goodness, the Vivo V5 has been launched in India which already enables us to check out what specs this phone carries before it is formally unveiled here. See below.

Vivo V5 specs:
  • 5.5-inch HD IPS display
  • 1280 x 720 resolution
  • Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Octa-core processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB Internal storage
  • Supports microSD card up to 128GB
  • 13MP rear camera with PDAF and LED flash
  • 20MP front camera with Sony IMX376 sensor
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Fun Touch OS 2.6
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 4G LTE
  • Dual-SIM
  • Fingerprint Sensor
  • Gold or Grey
  • 3000mAh Li-Ion Battery
  • PHP (TBA)
Of course the official availability date and pricing are all to be unveiled on November 23, 2016 so stay tuned for more details. However, in India, the Vivo V5 is priced at INR17,980 which is about Php13,000 when converted to PHP. Roughly the same price as the OPPO F1s smartphone. And by the way, I am not sure why but Vivo V5, on the outside appearance, looks very much like OPPO F1s.
