To celebrate the beginning of IPL 2017, Season 10, Vivo has decided to launch the Limited Edition of the Vivo V5 Plus. The company has sent out invites for an event on Tuesday in Hyderabad, where it is set to launch an IPL edition smartphone for the audience. The IPL’s opening ceremony and first match are on Wednesday.
The Vivo V5 Plus smartphone was launched in India in January, and is priced at Rs. 27,980. The device was made available with both offline and online retailers in February. It is unlikely that the specifications of the Limited Edition smartphone will change, but the outer design would presumably be tweaked, and it may have a few IPL-related apps pre-loaded. The availability and price of the device will be announced at the event on Tuesday. Notably, Vivo is also official sponsor for this IPL season.
The dual-SIM selfie-focused smartphone runs on the company’s Funtouch OS 3.0, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Its biggest highlight is its dual front camera setup. It sports a 20-megapixel camera with the Sony IMX376 1/2.78-inch sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and a 5P lens system, while it also sports a 8-megapixel camera that’s meant to capture depth-of-field information.
On the rear, Vivo V5 Plus bears a 16-megapixel sensor with LED flash. It comes with a fingerprint scanner on the Home Button. The Vivo V5 Plus (Review) sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, and is powered by a 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC that’s coupled with 4GB of RAM. The Vivo V5 Plus features 64GB of inbuilt storage that’s non-expandable. It offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS connectivity options. It measures 152.8×74.00×7.26 mm and weighs 158.6 grams. It is powered by a 3055mAh battery in India.
