Vivo V5 Plus has extracted many of its design traits from Vivo V5, especially with the same positioning of buttons.

Two camera units, an ambient light sensor, and a selfie flash are all accompanied by the top panel up front. On the bottom edge, you can see a headphone jack, speaker, and the micro USB port. The SIM card tray is engraved on the left edge with the power button and the volume rocker on the right. The antenna bands look slick along the edges, obviously inspired by the new iPhone 7. Full metal back with just the Vivo logo and the rear camera gives the phone a really clean appeal. You will love the premium metal finish, narrow bezels and the 7.26mm thin profile, it just feels great in the hand.
Vivo V5 Plus comes with a 5.5 inch IPS full HD display with protective Gorilla Glass 5 Corning’s and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Color reproduction is beautifully correlated the brightness is good enough for eligible readability in the sunlight, with the only difficulty imposed due to the slightly reflective screen. The viewing angles are great, it is covered with 2.5D curved glass which adds to the perfection of the display.

V5 Plus is packed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-Core processor with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.
