Vivo V5 Plus Now Official in PH, Price Announced As Well


Vivo Philippines, through a launch event that was recently held at the SM Mall of Asia, has officially launched the latest V5 series offering in the local market which is still aimed at selfie lovers, the V5 Plus. This phone as you may have already know sports a very unique feature, it has a dual front camera boasting a Sony-made 20MP main shooter and a secondary selfie cam with 8MP resolution. While the rear camera is pegged at 16MP.

In addition to its crazy camera set up which I have never seen before especially here in the Philippines, the Vivo V5 Plus has a pretty powerful set of specs right out of the box. The display is now at Full HD with its 5.5-inch IPS panel versus an HD or 720p resolution from Vivo V5 model. Protecting the screen is a Corning Gorilla Glass with 2.5D technology which makes it look even more premium. Inside it is an eight-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon processor with 4GB of RAM. The device will come in single storage variant which is 64GB and while local tech bloggers are reporting that it is not expandable, a post on GSMArena says it does (through the second SIM slot) and up to 256GB. But given that fellow Pinoy tech bloggers were at the event and had already had their hands on the device, looks like users of this phone are stuck with the 64GB.

And just like its predecessor the V5 Plus will be offered with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, however instead of Funtouch OS 2.6, this one will now have Funtouch OS 3.0 on top of Marshmallow.
