Good news to all selfie lovers out there! Vivo has just unveiled a Matte Black version of its latest camera-focused smartphone, the V5s!
“We are aware of the Vivo Fans’ clamor for a new color variant. Our new Vivo V5s Matte Black aims to widen our consumers’ options to suit their fashion needs and style preference. We believe that this limited edition color will set the tone for a much more sleek and trendy line of Vivo smartphones” – Annie Lim, Brand Director of Vivo Philippines.
Like its Gold and Rose Gold counterparts, the Matte Black V5s still boasts the premium look and build quality that Vivo devices are known for, with 2.5D glass covering the front, and u-shaped lines which blend well with the overall aesthetics.
It still has the 20MP front camera that allows for crystal-clear and vibrant looking selfies with astonishing levels of detail. It also has a group selfie feature which lets you include more people in your shots by panning the device left and right.
The V5s’ camera also touts an enhanced selfie softlight and an enhanced night mode for good looking photos even in challenging conditions. Love to listen to music? the dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip ensures you of a great listening experience. The device runs on Vivo’s custom skin FunTouch OS 3.0 on top of Android Marshmallow.
Other features include App Clone, which lets you login to two different accounts using the same social media application, letting you easily manage your professional and personal space on the web (currently supports important chat apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Line, BBM, Zalo, and Viber). There’s also Smart Split 2.o, which lets you view two different apps side-by-side.
