VIVO V5S: TAKE YOUR SELFIE GAME TO GREATER HEIGHTS
The wait is finally over for all selfie lovers out there as top five global premium brand1 Vivo brings to the table the newest member of the perfect selfie V5 line—the Vivo V5s—that will take the “selfie game” to greater heights.
In a big reveal at SM North Edsa last May 19, Vivo launched the V5s as the newest perfect selfie phone that caters to the arising needs of millennials, working professionals, and people from all walks of life. With a 20-megapixel front camera with f2.0 aperture, the V5s gives you crystal clear, high-resolution selfies, wherein all the details are astonishingly visible. Its 13-megapixel rear camera with f2.2 aperture and an ultra-high-definition mode also renders stunning ultra HD images of up to 52 megapixels.
True to its promise of producing clear and complete images that tell vivid stories, the V5s also brandishes the newest and exciting group selfie technology, which allows landscape-panning effects in ‘groufies’ or group shots. This new feature allows up-close panoramic landscape panning effects in capturing a group without squeezing in or missing anyone. It also supports both portrait and landscape orientations so that no one is left behind in barkada shots.
As proof of the new technology’s efficiency, celebrities Tony Labrusca, Mccoy de Leon, Boyband PH, blogger Verniece Enciso, host Nikko Ramos, and Vivo brand director Annie Lim did not miss the chance to take a group selfie with the crowd at the SM North Edsa launch, and the result was a perfectly captured ‘groufie’ with no one being left out of the photo.
The V5s also features a selfie softlight technology that creates lighting effects similar to those in a professional photography studio, with an enhanced night mode for clearer and more fabulous selfies taken at night or even in poor lighting conditions. The V5s also includes a beauty mode 6.0 feature, which works like a skincare tool that automatically detects your gender and applies beauty touches accordingly.
The Vivo V5s is equipped with 5G-ready capacity for a more stable Internet connection—an upgrade from the 4G capacity of previous V5 units and other phones in the same price range. For its storage, the V5s also has a bigger capacity of 4GB RAM, perfect for games and applications, and a 64GB ROM—expandable up to 256 GB—that can store up to 302 films, 20000 songs or 26,000 pictures, and other documents.
Still another new feature of the V5s is the App Clone, which allows users to log on to two different accounts using the same social media app, thus separating one's professional and personal lives. The said feature currently supports important chat apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Line, BBM, Zalo, and Viber.
The V5s shares the elegant and sleek design of the V5 series, with slimmer bezels and a large 5.5 inch display in 2.5D corning gorilla glass that gives impressive video-viewing effects. Vivo designers also gave the V5s an amazing new look with finer details, as the U-shaped cover lines make the back cover look even more premium and high-end.
Other notable features include a smart split 2.0 that enables the V5s to keep two tasks on screen at the same time, an eye protection mode that filters out all the blue light and makes the screen light softer, and a 0.2 fingerprint unlocking.
