As announced previously, Vivo has officially launched its latest mid-range smartphone named Vivo Z5. The unveiling happened at an event held in China which means it is hard to say if it will be released in global markets. The highlight features of the smartphone include triple rear cameras and a bigger battery.
The Vivo Z5 sports a 6.38-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and about 90% screen-to-body ratio. It is a full-screen display but with a waterdrop-styled notch in the center. Under the hood, it comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor featuring two Kryo 360 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and six Kry 360 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. It has 6GB and 8GB of RAM options along with 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage variants.
On the back panel, you will find three cameras including a 48-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.79 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel third sensor with f/2.4 aperture for depth effects in shots. The selfie camera on the device is a 32-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
The whole package is powered by a 4,500mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support. The battery capacity should last for you a day but even if you find the device with running towards low battery alert, the fast charging should help you out. It will be running Funtouch OS 9.1 based on Android 9 Pie out of the box. Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
