The highlight of the Vivo V5 Plus is its dual front camera setup. It sports a 20-megapixel camera with the Sony IMX376 1/2.78-inch sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and a 5P lens system, while it also sports a 8-megapixel camera that’s meant to capture depth-of-field information. On the rear, Vivo V5 Plus bears a 16-megapixel sensor with LED flash. It bears a fingerprint scanner on the home button.
Vivo V5 Plus is a dual-SIM smartphone that runs the company’s Funtouch OS 3.0, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Other V5 Plus key specifications include a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, a 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and a 3055mAh battery – notably, the global variant unveiled last week sports a 3160mAh battery.
