In a continuous tight market competition among smartphone brands in the country, Vivo Philippines is battling it out by unveiling today the newest member of their Vivo V5 family – the Vivo V5S.
An upgraded version of the Vivo V5, the Vivo V5S is braving the market at a competitive Philippine price of Php 14,990.
Perhaps prepping-up for the upcoming school openings in the Philippines, I think the Vivo V5S is a good smartphone to upgrade to for the upscale college students and the young professionals who still fall under the ‘millennials‘ age range in which taking ‘selfies‘ is a strong selling point, as for most FIlipinos.
This is where the Vivo V5S is strong at. With a 20MP front camera and improved softlight, taking selfies is made more appealing.
Add to that the upgraded 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM (expandable to 256MB), the new Vivo V5 S is competitive enough for the mid-range phone category at the aforementioned Philippine price point.

Moreover, another new feature of the V5s is the App clone, designed to help users separate their professional lives from their personal lives.

The Vivo V5S launch was held at the Atrium of SM North Edsa Annex earlier tonight where the whole Vivo Philippines team and international executives were in attendance.
