Vivo has recently gained a lot of footing in the smartphone market. Their smartphones have been able to garner a lot of attentions from the users all-around the world. Vivo seems to strategically price their smartphones that compel the users to take a look at their smartphones. Vivo launched its “Vivo V5” smartphone some time back, and it was a huge hit in the market. Following on the trend, Vivo is planning to launch two new smartphones in the coming future, and one of them being Vivo V5 Lite. So, let’s see how the upcoming Vivo V5 Lite smartphone might turn out to be in real life and if it has the same zing that made its elder sibling successful.
Just like its predecessor, Vivo V5, this phone has a striking similarity with Oppo F1 smartphone. With the leaked images online, we can observe that the phone shares a lot of design cues from the iPhone 6S. Overall, the phone looks attractive and appears to have amazing build quality. From the images available, we can see that the volume rocker and power button seem to be provided on the right edge of the phone, while the hybrid SIM card slot appears to be provided on the left side of the phone. Just like its predecessor, it looks like there is nothing provided on the top edge of the phone, while, the lower edge of the phone houses the earphone jack, speaker, mic, and port for battery charging. The external dimensions of the phone are believed to be 153.8 x 75.5 x 7.6 mm (6.06 x 2.97 x 0.30 in) and the phone is expected to weigh around 155 grams. The phone shall be available in two color variants i.e. Crown Gold and Rose Gold. If we talk about the display of the phone, it’s believed that the phone shall feature with a 5.5-inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that shall provide a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Overall, the display shall look bright enough to provide an amazing viewing experience. With the current specifications, one can easily expect the sunlight legibility and viewing angles to be fantastic.
The phone shall feature an octa-core 64-bit processor which we hope would be able to handle heavy applications easily. The phone is believed to come with 32GB of internal storage, which could be increased up to 256GB using the hybrid SIM card slot. It is believed that the phone shall come with 3GB of RAM. The phone shall run on Android version 6.0.1 i.e. Marshmallow with the help of Vivo’s Funtouch OS 2.6. The phone supports dual SIM (Nano-SIM/ Micro-SIM, dual stand-by) and shall also support 4G networks.
Vivo has always advertised their smartphones as one having amazing cameras, and this phone is no exception. The phone shall feature a 13 MP primary camera that would be backed by autofocus and LED flashlight. The basic camera settings shall include exposure compensation and ISO control. Shooting Modes shall include continuous shooting and High Dynamic Range mode (HDR). Various camera features will include Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus. Just like its elder sibling, Vivo V5 Lite’s main attraction will not be the rear camera but the front shooter. It is believed that a 16-MP front camera will be provided in the phone. With the expected specifications we can easily expect that the images captured by the camera would be decent. We hope that the primary camera would not struggle in dim light conditions like its predecessor. The front shooter, nonetheless, offers a tremendous potential to capture amazing selfies. A stereo loudspeaker shall also be provided in the phone, which we hope would get loud enough. A 3.5mm audio jack with active noise cancellation and dedicated mic shall also be provided in the phone.
The phone is expected to come with a 3000mAh Li-Ion non-user replaceable battery that can easily run for a day with moderate usage. The phone shall offer a range of connectivity options, such as Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/b/g, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.1, A-GPS, Glonass, FM Radio and USB On-The-Go and microUSB 2.0. The other sensors that is expected to come with the phone include a proximity sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope.
