Vivo has launched the Vivo V5(₹ 17000 at amazon) in India. The company is betting big on a 20-megapixel front-facing camera for the Vivo V5, alongside a modest set of specifications. The Vivo V5 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor clocked at 1.5GHz. This is aided with 4GB of RAM and 32GB native storage. At the rear is a 13MP camera with a single LED flash, while the front houses a 20-megapixel camera with a single LED fill light that acts as a front flash, which is also the prime attraction point of the Vivo V5.

The Vivo V5 measures 7.55mm in thickness, and weighs 154 grams. It runs on Android Marshmallow, barely recognisable under Vivo's FunTouch UI 2.6 that resembles Apple's iOS a bit too often. The smartphone is powered by a 3000mAh battery, and has a fingerprint sensor embedded into a capacitive home button to the front. The V5 has a 5.5-inch, HD display - a bit of a surprise seeing that most smartphones around this price include Full HD display panels.

Despite the large display, the Vivo V5 is light and ergonomic, and is even quite convenient for one-handed usage. The smartphone will be up against the likes of Moto G4 Plus, LeEco Le Max2 and Lenovo Z2 Plus. Against most contenders heavy on hardware, it will be interesting to see how Vivo's latest smartphone fares.
