Vivo Launches 20 MP Selfie Camera Phone
Vivo is on fire, and they have launched yet another selfie mobile in India. The phone is a successor to last year’s Vivo V5 and comes with some minor upgrades. Moreover, it is available for purchase at a price of Rs. 18000 from Flipkart.
The major upgrade is internal storage, as V5s offers 64 GB, whereas the Vivo V5 has only 32 GB. Also, the V5s looks like the Vivo V5 Plus with antenna bands running across the top. The design is similar to the Vivo V5 Plus.
Apart from the storage, Vivo has added a myriad of software features. The first being the ‘Group Selfie mode’. Vivo’s counterpart Oppo has a dedicated sensor in its Oppo F3 Plus for group selfies, but Vivo is enabling it via software. Also, this feature will be rolled out to other existing Vivo phones at a later date.
Additionally, the company has added the IPL Cricket theme to the V5s. This theme was earlier exclusive to the IPL edition of V5 Plus that was launched recently.
Moreover, Vivo has added another feature called as ‘app clone,’ which is a replica of the dual apps on the Xiaomi’s MIUI.
