Vivo has officially launched its new selfie-focused smartphone named Vivo V5 Plus in India. The Vivo V5 Plus features a 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD In-cell Display with 2.5D Curved Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It has a fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button.

In  terms of optics, the smartphone sports a 16-megapixel Rear camera with LED Flash, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF. It features front-facing dual camera setup (20MP + 8MP sensors). The 20-megapixel camera uses Sony IMX3761/2.78-inch sensor with f/2.0 aperture and 5P Lens system, while the secondary 8-megapixel camera captures depth information. Which means, the front camera setup can produce DSLR-like bokeh effects to the selfies. We’ve seen similar effects from the iPhone 7 Plus portrait mode – but that uses the rear camera and remember this is the front camera setup we’re talking about here. You can also change the focus area even after clicking a picture, adding blurring effects wherever you like.

The Dual-SIM smartphone packs a 3160mAh battery that supports fast charging technology and runs FunTouchOS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. Connectivity options includes 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac (Dual Band), Bluetooth 4.2 & GPS.
