Vivo has officially launched the smartphone in the Indian market, just a few days after revealing the V5 Plus smartphone. The smartphone will go on sale at the price of Rs.27980 in India and is now available for pre-ordering across the country.The device will be ready for users to purchase from stores starting from February 1. But you won’t have choices in terms of the color as the V5 Plus is being now available only in Gold color.
The Vivo V5 Plus sports a 5.5-inch In-Cell Full HD Touch display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front. There are not many devices using Corning Gorilla Glass 5 yet, so the Vivo V5 Plus can be actually seen as among the first mid-range handsets to come with it. The device is powered by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 mid-range octa-core SoC clocked at 2.0 GHz, with the Adreno 506 GPU for handling graphic inside. The chipset is packed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded via a micro SD card slot. But the phone comes with a hybrid dual-SIM slot, which means you can just insert a microSD card for expansion when you plan to use a single SIM card. If you want to use two SIM cards, then you have to live with the 64GB of inbuilt memory.
