Vivo, China's second largest smartphone vendor launched the Vivo V3 and V3 Max in India earlier this year. The company has aggressively promoted both the smartphones in the offline market space and has managed to receive a positive feedback.
Following the success of both these smartphones, the company is prepping to add another device to its V series of smartphones which goes by the moniker V5. The company is hosting an event on November 15 in Mumbai where it is expected to launch the Vivo V5.
The device will reportedly feature a 5.2-inch Full HD display, metal body design with rounded corners, Snapdragon chipset (unspecified), 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage space. But these are not the features you should be excited about.
The Vivo V5 is rumoured to sport an unprecedented 20MP selfie camera. As if that were not enough, it will rock a dual camera setup at the front. Meaning an 8MP camera is purported to run in tandem with the 20MP selfie shooter. There is no solid information available on the megapixel count of the rear camera as yet.
Looking at the rumoured spec sheet we only wonder what kind of innovation the company plans to bring along with the dual-front cameras on the Vivo V5. But, do we really need a 20MP selfie shooter, that too with a dual-camera setup?
No, not really. And there's a good reason for it. Most of the selfie-enthusiasts prefer to use various third-party apps to capture selfies. And these apps tend to do a lot of software processing to the captured images which in turn results in the loss of details. So, why would one need a 20MP front camera which eventually doesn't offer any advantage? Just think about it.
