Vivo V5s launched in India with just a tad bit extra storage and a matte black color variant
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Vivo, has announced the launch of their new device in India, the Vivo V5s. The phone is only a minor upgrade to Vivo V5 launched in November last year with design refinements – the internal storage is bumped to 64GB from 32GB.
Focused on a selfie-obsessed young audience, the V5 series packs in an unprecedented 20MP front-facing camera. The V5s too boasts of a ‘Moonlight Glow’ feature that induces a natural glow on the face without straining eyes that lights up the picture irrespective of the lighting conditions. The company claims that the feature allows users to capture perfect selfies without making them grainy, distorted or flooded with hard flash light.
After launching the Vivo V5Plus Limited edition, we are thrilled to introduce yet another masterpiece, the Vivo V5s. Through the launch of this device, Vivo aims to provide the best selfie camera phone in the market. Following the overwhelming response for V5, we have equipped the V5s with enhanced storage capacity and an improved operating system.– Kent Cheng, CEO, Vivo India
