New Vivo Customized IPL Themed Look SmartPhone
After launching the V5 Plus in India in January, Vivo launched a special edition of the device in the country on April 4. The company has revealed the price of their selfie-centric smartphone along with the announcement of an exclusive deal with the country’s leading e-commerce website Flipkart. As the company had previously announced, the newer version of the Vivo V5 Plus is the limited edition to the original V5 Plus launched back in January. Vivo’s new smartphone is the limited IPL edition version of their previously launched Vivo V5 Plus. The limited edition is to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the yearly T-20 league competition. While the regular variant of the V5 Plus comes in Gold color, the IPL Limited Edition comes in matte black color along with the Vivo IPL logo at its back.
Commenting on the partnership Ajay Yadav, Head – Mobiles, Flipkart said, “Flipkart is delighted to partner with Vivo in celebrating the 10 glorious years of IPL in India.”
Specs wise, the IPL edition of Vivo V5 Plus is similar to the original model. The Vivo V5 Plus IPL Limited Edition, like the regular variant, comes with a 5.5-inch display which has a Full-HD resolution along with the protection of Gorilla Glass, Snapdragon 625 SoC under the hood which is laced with 4 GB RAM and Adreno 506 GPU. In terms of storage, the device can accommodate 64GB of data. The highlight of this device, as was in the original, is the dual camera setup on the front. Vivo’s V5 plus limited edition has two cameras on the front, 20 MP and 8 MP. There is also a LED flash at the front for better, brighter selfies in low light conditions. The smartphone is powered by a 3,055mAh battery, and is also equipped with Vivo’s dual-charging engine technology for fast charging. The new V5 Plus also comes with a fingerprint sensor which is embedded on the home button. The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Funtouch OS 3.0 like its predecessor.
Given the success of Vivo’s original V plus, launched in January, offering flagship-like specs at a rather attractive price, the IPL edition only seems to be heading for huge success on sales front. It’s a rather great option for the buyers with its impressive specs sheet and great looks. Now that it comes with a customized IPL themed look, it will lure lots of cricket fans in the country.
