Vivo V5s with 4GB RAM & 20MP front camera – Specs & Price in India

Vivo has launched the Vivo V5s, its most recent selfie-oriented smartphone under the V-series in India. This comes a couple of months after the V5 itself was launched in the aforementioned nation. The device’s highlight since it is selfie-oriented is its 20MP selfie shooter which comes with the ‘Moonlight Glow’ feature which brightens up images by producing a natural glow on the face, the lighting conditions notwithstanding.

The device has a front-mounted fingerprint scanner that unlocks your device in roughly 0.2 seconds. It also runs on Funtouch 3.0 OS based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
