Vivo today launched its new V-series smartphone in India at an event held in Mumbai. The new V7+ smartphone succeeds the V5 Plus smartphone that has been on sale here for close to a year now. Vivo has priced the V7+ at Rs.21,990 in the country. Pre-bookings for the smartphone begin today, i.e. September 7th. It will be available for sale in India via Flipkart, Amazon India as well as offline retailers across the country September 15th onwards. Vivo will also be launching the V7 soon, but hasn’t revealed its spec-sheet just yet.
The key highlight of the new Vivo V7+ is the FullView display, similar to Samsung’s Infinity Display and LG’s FullVision Display. It is also Vivo’s first smartphones to feature a whopping 24-megapixel resolution Moonlight Selfie front-facing camera for highly detailed selfie shots. The FullView display doesn’t offer a very high resolution but it does boast an impressive 84.4% screen-to-body ratio. Being a Vivo smartphone, the V7+ boasts impressive audio quality as well, thanks to a built-in professional-grade AK4376A audio chip. The other key highlight is support for facial recognition, a feature that has so far been seen only on expensive flagship smartphones. Running under the hood is Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 450 octa-core SoC, making the V7+ the first smartphone to be launched in India with the new chipset.
