You’ve probably heard of big-name Chinese phone makers like Xiaomi, Huawei and Meizu. But you might want to start keeping a closer eye on Vivo.
The V5Plus’s two selfie cameras work differently. The main 20-megapixel camera shoots the selfie and the secondary 8-megapixel camera captures depth-of-field data.
With this dual camera setup, Vivo says you’ll be able to take photos with bokeh (background blur) just like with a DSLR. Translation: It’s the iPhone 7 Plus’s Portrait mode, but for selfies.
The secondary depth camera also lets you adjust a picture’s focus area after the shot’s been taken, a feature we’ve seen on phones like the HTC One M8.
Another selfie-oriented feature is “Selfie Softlight” which uses the screen to illuminate your face (like the iPhone’s Retina flash).
The rest of the phone’s not bad, either. Though the processor is a punier Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, the phone at least comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (expandable to 256GB via microSD), and a large 3,160 mAh battery. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow (sorry, Nougat fans).
The 5.5-inch full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution screen should be plenty sharp. There’s a fingerprint sensor below the display and — woohoo! — a headphone jack. On the back is a standard 16-megapixel camera with LED flash.
Now for the kicker: The phone only comes in gold. Yep, just the one color. The phone’s also launching in select Asian countries: India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand. If you live in another country, your only hope might be to import one. But you should probably wait until pricing is announced.
