Vivo V5 specifications

The Vivo V5 is likely to boast a metal body design like its predecessors V3 and V3 Max. It is expected to feature a 5.2-inch full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. Under the hood will be 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor with Adreno 510 GPU and 4GB of RAM. The smartphone will further include 32GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. Currently, there is no word if the smartphone will come in multiple choices of RAM or internal storage.

The Vivo V5 will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Akin to the previous V series models V3 and V3 Max the Vivo V5 will also house a fingerprint scanner, but this time it will be embedded in the smartphone s home button rather on the rear. In tune with the growing demand for smartphones which support high-speed internet connectivity, the Vivo V5 will also come with 4G VoLTE support.

Coming to the highlight of the Vivo V5, at 20-megapixel, it will be one of the highest megapixel counts on offer in terms of a selfie camera. The Vivo V5 is further said to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and Phase Detection AutoFocus (PDAF). ALSO READ: Vivo V3, V3 Max hands-on and first impressions

While there have been smartphones such as Huawei Honor 7 with 20-megapixel rear camera , Meizu MX 5 and Sony Xperia Z2 with 20.7-megapixel rear camera, they do not offer similar bump in the megapixel count when it comes to the front camera.

Currently, Oppo F1s claims to be the selfie-focused smartphone with 16-megapixel front camera with 1/3.1-inch sensor and an F/2.0 aperture for more light and wider frames. At Rs 17,990, the Oppo F1s comes with a 5.5-inch HD display, 1.5GHz 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13-megapixel rear camera and 3075mAh battery.

Also competing in the same category is the Gionee S6s that features a selfie flash which is in addition to the screen flash for its 8-megapixel front camera. Priced at Rs 17,999, the Gionee S6s offers a 5.5-inch full HD display and features 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13-megapixel rear camera, and 3,150mAh battery.

The Vivo V5, on the other hand, is also rumored to come with a LED flash that could offer brighter results even in low light conditions. Finer details about the smartphone s battery and connectivity are not known but given the 20-megapixel count on the front camera, the Vivo V5 is likely to give a tough competition to its contemporaries.
