Vivo outs V1 and V1 Max Lollipop droids for India
Chinese tech outfit Vivo has unveiled and subsequently released two smartphones in India. The “V” series was specifically introduced to tackle the demands of the budget-attentive Indian smartphone market.
The Vivo V1 and Vivo V1 Max, both full touchscreen smartphones and running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, were released sporting a 5,000-rupee difference in their price tags. The V1, featuring a 5-inch HD display, attracts a price tag of INR 15,000 ($236) while the supposedly larger V1 Max will set you back INR 20,000 ($315) when it hits the shelves later this month.
Unfortunately, the phone maker did not disclose specifications details of the V1 Max but the V1 is said to come with a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU clubbed with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, an Adreno 306 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The device houses a 128GB microSD card slot and a user-removable 2300mAh battery unit.
In terms of taking photos, there’s a 13-megapixel rear shooter with F2.0 aperture and autofocus as well as a single LED flash and finally, a 5-megapixel sensor up front for taking selfies.
The Vivo V1 packs a double SIM card slot with support for LTE and 3G. The connectivity list is completed by Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and A-GPS.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of our new smartphone series. With ‘V’ series we bring unbeatable proposition, price and products in the mid-segment category,” Alex Feng, CEO of Vivo India said at the launch event on Tuesday.
