vivo V5s Officially Launched in Malaysia, Retails at RM1,299

vivo Malaysia today has officially launched the brand new V5s, which is the improved version of the V5. Specs wise, the V5s actually is pretty much similar to the V5.

The device still has the same 5.5-inch HD IPS display covered by a 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3. Powering the device is a MediaTek MT6750 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage (up from 32GB storage).

In terms of camera, the V5s still has the same 20MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture and an updated Selfie Softlight. Its rear camera is still the same 13MP f/2.2 aperture unit, though.

One noticeable difference over the V5 is the new U-shape antenna lines, which is same as the V5 Plus. The device also comes with the AK4376 Hi-Fi chip for a better audio experience.

Juicing up the device is a 3,000mAh battery and the device is running on FunTouch OS 3.0 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The device will come in three color options: Matte Black, Gold, and Rose Gold. It will be available for pre-order on 3rd May, retailing at RM1,299. The device will be officially available for purchase on 10th May.
