Vivo Philippines CEO Ted Xiong and brand director Annie Lim with the brand marketing team and Vivo club ambassadors, after a successful Vivo V5 Plus launch at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium.

Vivo, top five global premium brand*, officially launched Vivo V5 Plus, the world’s first 20 MP Dual front camera during its grand media and consumer launch last January 21, at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium, drawing local stars and top lifestyle, fashion, technology bloggers and all selfie-fanatics alike, excited to try out the much-awaited perfect selfie phone.

Hazel Bascon, Vice President of Vivo Philippines, expressed her exhilaration in upgrading the selfie experience. “We are excited to bring the ‘selfie’ to the next level. Our latest innovation not only provides high-quality audio, but also as everyone loves—the perfect selfie,” she stated.

Bascon likewise disclosed that in their desire to improve the quality of their smartphones, Vivo has once more increased the number of its research centers. “In our pursuit of innovation and perfection, we have expanded our research centers to seven. This move is geared towards our objective of giving the best and most unique experience to our consumers.”

The Vivo V5 Plus is equipped with the world’s first dual front camera—a combination of a 20-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel secondary camera, designed to collect depth-of-field information.

With its dual front camera, the Vivo V5 Plus can create a true ‘bokeh’ effect on the spot, producing photos with sharp face details, but beautifully blurred backgrounds.

According to Vivo Philippines, the V5 Plus has the most advanced selfie technology to date, with features like the beauty mode 6.0—a built-in, easy-to-use camera option for enhancing skin tone and removing blemishes—and the selfie soft light, which enables users to take high-definition selfies even in poor lighting conditions.

The big reveal also reintroduced NBA superstar Stephen Curry as the official endorser and brand ambassador of all Vivo phones, including the Vivo V5 Plus perfect selfie phone.

Aside from its remarkable dual front camera, also highlighted during the event were the phone’s impressive specifications.

The Vivo V5 Plus features a 1/2.8-inch 16-megapixel sensor rear camera with an ultra HD mode, designed to improve photo quality for up to 64 megapixels, and a professional mode for manual configuration of camera settings before taking photos.

Sound-wise, the Vivo V5 Plus features the same Hi-Fi system of previous Vivo models, perfected over two years—the AK4376.

On speed and performance, the Vivo V5 Plus has a 4GB RAM 64GB ROM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, fast and efficient enough to perform multiple phone tasks at the same time. The phone runs on Vivo’s very own Funtouch 3.0 OS, based on Android 6.0.

The phone’s style values both sophistication and convenience, with a 5.5-inch large display and an ultra-slim bezel technology, which means users will be able to enjoy a large display while operating the phone with only one hand, just as they do with 5.2-inch phones.

On battery life, the Vivo V5 Plus has a 3160mAh battery with a fast-charging feature, ideal for highly mobile people.

Finally, with an upgraded fingerprint technology, users can unlock the Vivo V5 Plus with one touch, in just 0.2 seconds.
