Now what’s so exciting with the new Vivo V5s?
Aside from coming from the same parent brand line as the V5 series, the Vivo V5s is upgraded with a host of advanced selfie technology features that is sure to wow Vivo fans even more.
Its 20-megapixel front camera now has an f2.0 aperture that gives crystal clear and high resolution photos, better than it was before. The light sensing area is also larger than average at 1/2.78 inch – it allows more light to come in, which in turn enhances photo brightness even at dark and difficult angles.
The rear camera on the other hand is a 13-megapixel monster with an ultra-high definition mode that renders stunning images of up to 52-megapixels in quality.
And with its new group selfie technology, the Vivo V5s allows landscape-panning effects for group shots or “groufies”.
And just like with the other V5 models, the Vivo V5s features the Selfie Softlight technology that creates lighting effects similar to those in professional photography studios.
Other remarkable features includes the Face Beauty Mode 6.0 , its signature AK4376 hi-Fi Audio Chip, Smart Split 2.0 which enables the V5s to keep two tasks on screen at the same time, Fingerprint unlocking that opens the phone at a speed of .2 seconds, and its new App Clone software that allows users to log on to two different accounts using the same social media app. It works on WhatsApp, WeChat, Line, BBM, Zalo and Viber. More social media Apps will be added in the future.
