Despite having been around for a few years, the selfie craze doesn’t seem to be abating anytime soon – not with the release of yet another selfie-focused device, the new Vivo V5, boasting what is claimed to be the world’s first eye-popping 20-megapixel front camera. 

The Chinese maker’s latest flagship has taken over the selfie crown from Oppo’s F1s, which previously held the top selfie spot with its 16-megapixel front-facing camera. 

Vivo Malaysia CEO Mike Xu said that the V5 is designed for selfie lovers to express their personalities and capture moments in their life.

Besides the pixel count, it also comes with a “Softlight” feature which basically works like a flash for capturing better photos in low-light condition. 

The main camera on the other hand features a 13-megapixel sensor, with phase detect autofocus for faster focusing on objects.  

Similar to many mid-range smartphones today, the phone features a front-facing fingerprint sensor that the company claims is capable of unlocking the device in just 0.2 seconds.  

Other specs include a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core 1.5GHz 64-bit processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage (expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card) and a 3,000mAh battery.  

Unlike many other mid range devices in the market, the V5 runs on the relatively new Android Marshmallow with a custom user interface called Funtouch OS 2.6.  

The phone is priced at RM1,299 and can be pre-ordered now from Vivo authorised dealers and retail stores nationwide. The Vivo V5 will go on sale on Nov 26.
