It consists of a 20-megapixel Sony IMX376 1/2.78-inch sensor, with f/2.0 aperture and 5P lens system. There is a secondary 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture that captures depth information in an image. The two sensors work in combination and add depth-of-field to selfies. One can also change the focus of the selfies, after the photo is clicked. Similar to the V5, the Vivo V5 Plus also gets a moonlight glow flash. The LED flash basically brightens up the scene by acting like a lamp or torch, rather than firing like a flash. The front cameras also come with support for Face Beauty 6.0. This is just another term for Beauty mode, wherein the smartphone uses a few software tricks to tweak your selfies to look better.
