Vivo has launched the new V5 smartphone in India. The device is being positioned in the market as a imaging specific (selfies, to be more precise) smartphone in the mid-range segment, where they will compete against existing selfie centric phones such as the Gionee S6s and the Oppo F1s, and others such as the Lenovo Z2 Plus. The V5 is priced at Rs 17,980 and will be available for pre-orders from November 16 to 25. Vivo teased V5 Plus with dual front camera set-up at the launch event as well. The smartphone is slated to launch by the end of this year.

The V5’s highlight is the 20MP front facing camera, which claims to shoot good selfies even under poorly-lit conditions. Vivo V5 Plus, on the other hand, will sport a dual front camera-setup and will hit the shelves later this year. The V5 is equipped with a Sony IMX 376 (1/2.78-inch, f/2.0) sensor. The company dubs this as the Moonlight Camera, as the V5 makes use of a front-facing flash for taking photos under dimly lighted conditions. This basically means that the LED glows a soft but bright white to act as a light source to illuminate the faces in the selfie when it is relatively dark around.

Under the hood, the dual-SIM Vivo V5 is packaged with a 1.5GHz octa core MediaTek MT6750 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 3,000 mAh battery. The large 5.5-inch display is coupled with some loud in-built speakers for multimedia consumption. For storage, there’s 32GB or inbuilt memory, which is expandable up to 128 GB. The device is covered by a 2.5D glass overlay on the display, with a unibody form factor and a fingerprint scanner. The Vivo V5 runs on Android 6.0, and the manufacturer’s FunTouch OS overlay which offers features like split window multitasking.
