Vivo has sent out invites for the Vivo V7 launch in India. The launch is set for September 7 in Mumbai where price, specifications, and availability details will be unveiled. The Vivo V7 will be a new addition to the ‘V series’ of smartphones in Vivo’s expanding product portfolio for the Indian market.
While nothing is known about the Vivo V7 smartphones as of yet, the invite shows the smartphone’s display panel, hinting at an almost bezel-less display. There is a thin chin at the top and bottom bezels for sensors presumably, and there’s no sign of a home button either. The fingerprint scanner will also presumably be placed at the back.
The invite also has the tagline that reads, “Redefine the selfie experience with the revolutionary selfie camera.” This hints that the Vivo V7’s big highlight will be the selfie camera experience, just like many of its earlier smartphones.
Vivo India recently the selfie-focused smartphone in the country, and priced it at Rs. 18,990. The big highlight of the Vivo V5s is the front camera – it bears a 20-megapixel front camera with a ‘Moonlight Glow’ front light and an f/2.0 aperture, apart from the Face Beauty 6.0 app. On the rear, the smartphone features a 13-megapixel camera with PDAF and dual-LED flash.
The dual-SIM (MicroNano) Vivo V5s runs Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It features a fingerprint sensor on its home button. It bears a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display with 2.5D Curved Glass, Gorilla Glass protection, and a pixel density of 267ppi. It is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM.
On the storage front, the Vivo V5s offers 64GB of inbuilt storage that’s expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM format. The Vivo V5s runs on 3000mAh non-removable battery, weighs 154 grams, and measures 153.8×75.5×7.55mm.
