Global smartphone brand, Vivo is definitely on a mission this year, and they’re on a roll with the release of yet another smartphone in their phenomenally successful V5 series. This one, released last week by bollywood actress Nimrat Kaur and Vivo India CEO Mr. Kent Cheng in a gala event in Gurgaon, is the Vivo V5s: an updated and more efficient version of their star phone, the V5.
For some context, let’s go back to the specs of the V5 to understand this phenomenon better:
The V5 brought about a selfie revolution in the market with it’s one of a kind 20 MP dual lens front camera that lets you capture art and not just your regular selfies. It also boasts of a great battery life, an attractive design and a pretty cool OS and processor.
Now the V5s is all of that, and better.
It retains the superstar camera but added to that, has got even more storage space (4 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM, expandable up to 256 GB), so you’ll not have to worry about running out of space while enjoying your photo shoot. It has an octa-core 64-bit processor that’s made for multitasking (pretty efficient when coupled with the split-screen option) and a big battery of 3000 mAh. Like its predecessor, the V5, the V5s runs the Funtouch OS 3.0, Vivo’s own OS which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It also has been enhanced with a more sensitive and ultrafast fingerprint unlocking mechanism that allows you to unlock your phone with a touch of a finger in less than 0.2 seconds.
The best part about the V5s though is its design. It looks pretty much like the V5, which already had a stunning design, but this one is even better because of its colours. It’s available in two colours, Matte Black and Crown Gold and both are elegant and aesthetically pleasing and make a perfectly bold statement. We previously saw the Matte Black V5 in the IPL 10 year anniversary special edition and we fell in love with it then. The Matte Black V5s, therefore, is for all of you who love the colour but aren’t die hard IPL fans, which is something great.
The V5s is a gorgeous phone to behold and with this new beauty added to their collection, Vivo is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing smartphone brands in the world. The V5s is priced at Rs 18,990 and will be available in Vivo stores and on Flipkart.
