Vivo’s latest selfie masterpiece, the Vivo V5 Plus, has finally made it to the country.

V5 Plus, another Vivo smartphone is a better version of the V5 because of its enhanced imaging capabilities. Though the screen size wasn’t extended, the phone had features that its siblings did not have. It has two front cameras, an improved rear camera, and a Snapdragon 625 octa-core for its processor. The handset also comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Funtouch OS 3.0, the company’s own proprietary skin.

  1. The fingerprint scanner on the Vivo V5 Plus is located on the front panel instead of the rear panel like in most affordable smartphones out there. It’s extremely quick and responsive in unlocking the device, and can also be configured for more.
