Vivo V5s Gets a Price Cut in India, Now Available at Rs. 15,990

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The new price tag is applicable to both offline and online channels
  • Vivo V5s was launched in April at Rs. 18,990
  • It’s powered by MediaTek MT6750 SoC and has 4GB of RAM

The Vivo V5s has received a permanent price cut in India and will now be available for a new price tag of Rs. 15,990. The Vivo V5s, originally launched in April at a price of Rs. 18,990, had received its first official price cut to Rs. 17,990, back in July this year.

The revised pricing of Rs. 15,990 seems to be an attempt by the Chinese phone maker to get closer to the sub-15,000 market in India, where players like Xiaomi and Oppo reign supreme. On Sunday, the Xiaomi Mi A1 got an official price cut and is now down to Rs. 13,999, applicable on purchases via mi.com and Flipkart.

Flipkart currently lists the Vivo V5s at a price of Rs. 17,990. The listing is expected to be updated with revised pricing in the coming days. Mahesh Telecom, a retailer for Vivo Mobiles, posted the revised pricing on Twitter, and a company representative confirmed the new pricing to Gadgets 360.

The Vivo V5s (Review) is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device that runs on FunTouch OS 3.0 based on top of Android v6.0 Marshmallow. The smartphone has a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. It is powered by a 1.5 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM.

In the camera department, the Vivo V5s sports a 13-megapixel rear sensor with dual-LED flash. On the front is a 20-megapixel sensor, with front flash, for selfies and video calling. The smartphone has an internal storage of 64GB, which is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.

In terms of connectivity, the Vivo V5s has Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include compass magnetometer, proximity sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and gyroscope. It also has a 3000mAh non-removable battery under the hood.

The phone measures 153.80 x 75.50 x 7.55 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 154.00 grams.
