“This is the perfect phone that selfie lovers like me are surely waiting for. With V5s’ superb camera specs, there is no need for too much editing on your radiant and natural-looking selfies. What makes V5s more exciting is the newest groufie technology feature that allows panoramic group selfies,” said Labrusca.
“The warm welcome and overwhelming support that we got here in this big launch just shows that the Philippine smartphone market is very much ready to embrace an improved perfect selfie phone like V5s, which is very much ahead of its competitors in of quality and affordability,” added De Leon.
During the big reveal, Vivo introduced to prospective buyers the newest member of the ‘perfect selfie’ V5 line and why this ‘next big thing’ in the market is definitely wort the wait, as it seeks to expand its reach in the selfie-centric market.
Equipped with a 20-megapixel front camera with f2.0 aperture, the V5s gives selfie lovers a crystal clear, high-resolution selfies, wherein all the details are astonishingly visible. This is complemented by a 13-megapixel rear camera with f2.2 aperture and an ultra-high-definition mode that renders stunning ultra HD images of up to 52 megapixels.
True to its promise of producing clear and complete images that tell vivid stories, the V5s also brandishes the newest and exciting group selfie technology, which allows landscape-panning effects in ‘groufies’ or group shots. This new feature allows up-close panoramic landscape panning effects in capturing a group without squeezing in or missing anyone. It also supports both portrait and landscape orientations so that no one is left behind in barkada shots.
As proof of the new technology’s efficiency, Tony, Mccoy, Boyband PH, Verniece, Nikko, and Vivo brand director Annie Lim did not miss the chance to take a group selfie with the crowd at the SM North Edsa launch, and the result was a perfectly captured ‘groufie’ with no one being left out of the photo.
It also features a selfie softlight technology that creates lighting effects similar to those in a professional photography studio. Offered by other V5 models but updated for the V5s, the selfie softlight has an enhanced night mode for clearer and more fabulous selfies taken at night or in poor lighting conditions.
Other remarkable features of the V5s include its face beauty mode 6.0, which works like a skincare tool that automatically detects your gender and applies beauty touches accordingly; an App Clone allows users to log on to two different accounts using the same social media app; a smart split 2.0 that enables the V5s to keep two tasks on screen at the same time; an eye protection mode that makes the screen light softer; and a 0.2 fingerprint unlocking.
