Matte Black, the new Rose Gold for 2017. The “pink” color variant of the iPhone from the previous year was a huge splash due to its refreshing look. Now, the craze has shifted to the subtle black hue.

There’s just something about this color variant that really looks appealing. Personally, I really like how stealthy and minimalistic it looks. And just like the Rose Gold, we have Apple to blame for this new trend. Since the iPhone 7, quite a number of other manufacturers have also joined the party. OPPO, for one, is already on board. Now, we also have the Vivo V5s Matte Black.

The new Matte Black color option will join the Crown Gold and Rose Gold V5s variant. Both of the initial options has a bright and loud color theme, so it’s nice to see a more subtle and toned-down dark option.


But besides the new black tint, this thing is pretty much the same Vivo V5s. If you’re not familiar, you can check out the list below.
