Besides officially announcing the Vivo V5 Plus today, the Chinese company also took the wraps off the V5 Lite, which may be the third model in the V5 family and will the lowest-end of them all. We do hope it will be the cheapest V5 for you to purchase, but the pricing has unfortunately not been revealed yet.
As it’s a Lite version, so the V5 Lite doesn’t own the unique dual front camera arrangement like on V5 Plus’, but it still keeps the “selfie softlight” flash for its 16 MP f/2.0 unit. At the back will be a 13 MP camera with f/2.2 aperture, and a LED flash.
This Vivo V5 Lite will be powered by an unknown 64-bit octa-core chipset, but surely be packed with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expandable via a microSD slot. The phone will sport a 5.5-inch IPS display with 720p resolution like on Oppo F1s, while a 3,000-mAh capacity battery remains all features working. In terms of software, the device will run Funtouch OS 3.0 layout based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Unlike the V5 and V5 Plus, it’s pity when Vivo V5 Lite doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor, but it luckily keeps the metal unibody design like his two brothers. The V5 Lite will be available in Crown Gold and Rose Gold color options. Its dimensions are 153.8 x 75.5 x 7.6 mm and weighs 155gram. Other connectivity features includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n wireless, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, Wi-Fi Direct, USB Tethering, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS and dual-SIM. The device will be sold in Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, and the Philippines, at first then it will land in other markets later on.
