Vivo Philippines launched the new Vivo V5 smartphone that has a 20-megapixel front-facing camera.


The camera has a 1/2.78” Sony IMX376 camera sensor with a SP lens system and an aperture of f/2.0. It also has a front-facing soft-light flash that can illuminate its subjects whenever they take a selfie. Its rear camera’s 13-megapixel sensor has phase-detect autofocus that helps users snap photos as they happen.

“With the V5… we continue to push the boundaries of a premium mid-range smartphone as we highlight Vivo’s high standards in smartphone design and features,” said Hazel Bascon, VP of Vivo Philippines.


Available in champagne gold and rose gold colors, the Vivo V5 measures 5.5 inches, comes in an all-metal unibody shell case and comes with a 5.5-inch 1280×720 high-definition display in 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass for protection. Powered by a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor, Vivo V5 runs Funtouch OS 2.6, a proprietary operating system which is now based on Android’s 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.

The device is also equipped with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage expandable to 128GB via micro SD, and a 32-bit AK4376 digital to analog converter Hi-Fi chip.

Added features include the Smart Split 2.0, an improved version of Vivo’s take on multitasking which allows users to view two apps side-by-side; and the Eye Protection Mode, which filters blue light from the screen to protect its users’ eyesight.

Vivo V5 is available for P12,990.

Other upcoming device, the Vivo V5 Plus, is expected to supplement the Vivo V5. The device will be the same size as Vivo V5 but will have a 1920×1080 display and 20-megapixel dual front-facing cameras.
