Vivo will launch its latest flagship mobile smartphone, the V5s, a new member of the V series of devices today. The V5s continues Vivo's record of delivering phones that provide users with "Perfect Selfies" with a 20MP front camera and optimized Selfie Softlight feature as well as 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM.
"Our focus group shows that users tend to take selfies in their everyday life," explained Alex Feng, Global Vice President at Vivo. "The V5s is a ground-breaking smartphone that aids users' pursuit of the perfect selfie in low-light environments and fulfills their desire to beautify portraits with natural effects."
The V5s uses a 20MP front camera to take selfie technology to the next level with exquisite clarity and vivid, natural colors. The new selfie function also supports bokeh effects to deliver crystal-clear portrait focus and artistic background blurring.
The V5s is powered by an octa-core CPU, with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM (expandable to 256GB with a microSD card). This powerful hardware configuration, together with the updated Funtouch OS 3.0 operating system (based on Android 6.0), guarantees a smoother selfie and photography experience.
Creative Group Selfie and 52MP Ultra HD photos
Dedicated to cutting-edge smart phone photography technology, V5s also introduces the Group Selfie feature to capture every smile in a group shot without squeezing in or missing anyone. Meanwhile, the 52MP Ultra HD photo feature shoots multiple frames in quick succession and creates 52MP photos with more detail and less noise.
"By launching the brand new V5s, Vivo heralds a new era of photography in the mobile phone industry," noted Feng. "It continues to offer users gorgeous selfies and an enjoyable user experience by upgrading our photography technologies as well as introducing new features."
The V5s will be available in matte black, crown gold and rose gold. It will land in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines in May.
