Vivo V5 launched for Rs 17,980 in India, features 4GB RAM, 20MP front camera and more.

Today at an event in Mumbai, Chinese smartphone manufacture Vivo launched another mid-range offering Vivo V5. Priced at Rs 17,980, Vivo V5 is targeting young audience with more attention on audio and selfie-shooter capabilities. Let’s look at the specs.

The V5’s highlight is the 20MP front facing camera, which claims to shoot good selfies even under poorly-lit conditions. Vivo V5 Plus, on the other hand, will sport a dual front camera-setup and will hit the shelves later this year. The V5 is equipped with a Sony IMX 376 (1/2.78-inch, f/2.0) sensor. The company dubs this as the Moonlight Camera, as the V5 makes use of a front-facing flash for taking photos under dimly lighted conditions. This basically means that the LED glows a soft but bright white to act as a light source to illuminate the faces in the selfie when it is relatively dark around.


  • Display: 5.5-inch HD display with 1280×720 resolution
  • Processor: 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750
  • Internal Storage: 32GB with expandable storage up to 128GB
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Camera: 20MP front shooter with 13MP rear camera
  • OS: Android Marshmallow 6.0 with Funtouch OS 2.6
  • Battery: 3000 mAh
  • Weight: 154g

Other features include fingerprint scanner on front, Smart Screen-Split function for multitasking, and custom-made AK4376 dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip that provides an immersive audio experience.

The company shared some interesting numbers too. Vivo entered the Indian market in December, 2014 and currently has presence in 22 states covering more than 400 cities and 33,000 outlets.

Vivo also teased upcoming V5 Plus which is expected to bring world’s first dual front camera setup.

The V5 will be available both online and offline starting 26 November and you can pre-order one starting tomorrow for Rs 17,980.
