Vivo is set to launch its latest flagship device, the VivoV5 in India. The company has sent out media invites today for the launch event scheduled on 15th November in Mumbai. Unlike other brands, Vivo has focused mainly on offline sales and has been quite popular in the country.

To support the camera there will also be a front-facing LED Flash for well-balanced photos even in the dark. There will be a 13-mega pixel primary camera on the back with LED flash and Phase Detection AutoFocus (PDAF).
Further, the Vivo V5 will have a 5.2 inch full HD screen with 2.5D curved glass display on top that comes with Gorilla Glass protection. It will be powered by a 1.8GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor along with Adreno 510 GPU. On the storage front, the Vivo V5 will have 32 GB of internal storage that can be further expanded to 128GB through a micro SD card. The phone will feature 4GB RAM.
