Two months after the launch of the V5, top 5 global smartphone maker Vivo is making noise once again as it introduces the V5 Plus. To recall, the V5 Plus was shown as a teaser along with the announcement of Stephen Curry as Vivo’s brand ambassador during the launch of the V5.

Being promoted in line with the #PerfectSelfie campaign (which is probably Vivo’s response to the OPPO F1s’s #SelfieExpert campaign), the V5 Plus is the world’s first smartphone with 20-megapixel dual front camera system according to Vivo. The system consists of a 20-megapixel primary camera backed by Sony’s IMX376 image sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary camera for depth-of-field and overall enhancement of a self-portrait’s image quality.

For the rear camera, Vivo has equipped the V5 Plus with a 16-megapixel 1/2.8-inch image sensor. Other camera features of the V5 Plus include bokeh effect, enhanced face beauty algorithm, and selfie soft light that can be useful when shooting under low light conditions.

Vivo didn’t only focus on the imaging prowess of the V5 Plus. It also addressed the needs of music-loving users by adding the AK4376 audio chip to the V5 Plus. Inside, the V5 Plus comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage, all of which work together to provide fluid user experience on Funtouch 3.0-enhanced Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. On the security front, the V5 Plus comes with a fingerprint sensor that can be unlocked in just 0.2 seconds.

On the outside, the V5 Plus sports a 5.5-inch touchscreen display with an ultrathin bezel and 5th generation Corning Gorilla Glass protection. Vivo also enhanced the handset’s signal reception by equipping it with a 1.8mm-wide, dome-style, U-shaped antenna.
