Vivo V5s Philippines Price and Release Date Guesstimate, Specs, Features

Positioned in between the best-selling Vivo V5 and the popular Vivo V5 Plus, the upcoming Vivo V5s is essentially the cross between those two earlier Android smartphone models by the Chinese company.

Looks-wise, Vivo V5s flaunts an anodized aluminum shell with not-so-prominent antenna bands, which is exactly the same as what's on the more expensive Vivo V5 Plus.

As for technical specifications, however, Vivo V5s is almost one and the same as Vivo V5 -- discounting this new model's larger 64GB of internal storage.

Vivo V5s is equipped with a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, a 13 MegaPixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and LED flash, non-removable 3,000 mAh battery pack, Dual SIM Dual Standby capability, and 4G LTE support.

Inside, the handset is powered by a 64-Bit 1.5 GHz Octa Core MediaTek MT6750 processor with Mali-T720 graphics and has a sizable 4GB of RAM for smooth multitasking.

One of the main selling points of Vivo V5s is its front-facing selfie cam with a whopping 20 MegaPixels resolution and what the company calls 'Moonlight' Soft LED flash, which works together with the f/2.0 aperture to deliver outstanding imaging performance at night and in low light conditions.

Aside from having Vivo's Split Screen innovation that lets the user run two apps on one screen at the same time - side by side, Vivo V5s also comes with the new App clone feature, which is designed to help you separate your professional life from your personal life when using the handset. Using this app, you can log on to two separate accounts using the same social media app. This feature currently supports various chat and messaging apps including like WhatsApp, Line, and Viber.

Again, like Vivo V5 and V5 Plus, Vivo V5s is equipped with a Hi-Fi Music AK4376 audio chip, which allows the smartphone to deliver crystal clear surround sound quality, whether via earphones, headphones, or loud speakers.

Vivo Philippines will be officially announcing the Vivo V5s - along with its exact SRP and release date - via an exclusive event to be held at SM North EDSA CyberZone on May 19, 2017. Right now, we can only give you our guesstimate for the handset's price tag when it becomes available across the company later this month, which is around Php 15,000 to Php 16,000.

Update as of May 20, 2017: Vivo V5s has just been officially launched in the Philippines through a media and consumer event held at SM North EDSA CyberZone. The handset's official suggested retail price is only Php 14,990!
