Vivo V5 goes official with 20MP selfie camera, Snapdragon 652 CPU
Vivo's new V5 smartphone has just been revealed and from what we've learned from the previous leaks, it's more of a mid-range phone. The Vivo V5 is now marketed as the perfect selfie smartphone due to its impressive front-facing camera.

The official specs mention the V5 comes with a 20-megapixel camera in the front, which features Sony's IMX376 sensor and, according to Vivo, it can be compared to digital cameras in terms of imaging quality in low light condition.

The sensor is pretty large at 1/2.78 inches and features f/2.0 aperture and 5P lenses for state of the art portrait shots. Obviously, Vivo has added some sort of “sophisticated beautification software,” which you can use for your selfies.

Another interesting feature that might or might not be a gimmick is the Selfie Soft-light function, which will automatically detect the light in the environment and switch on when needed to create the lightning effect that you usually get in a pro photography studio.

When it comes to hardware, the Vivo V5 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, complemented by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD card)

Vivo V5 sports a 5.5-inch display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass and HD (720p) resolution. The phone includes a fingerprint sensor and eye protection mode to prevent eye strain by filtering blue light.

Lastly, Vivo has partnered with AKM, a well-known music chip maker, to include the new Hi-Fi chip AK4376 on the V5. The chip is supposed to deliver amazing music experience by reproducing every detail in a music piece.

Vivo V5 will soon be available for purchase in some Asian countries like Vietnam, Philippine, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar and Thailand for around $260.

I wonder if they are durable or can they last one to two years? Otherwise the price with those kind of specs are very tempting.

it can last 2years if you treat it nicely :P VIVO brand is just like OPPO, and OnePlus, so you can expect similar build quality
