The Chinese phone maker; Vivo’s V7+ is the latest 24 MP- selfie-focused handset with an edge to edge Full Vision Display, priced at Rs 21,990 will be available for sale from September 15th 2017.
From the starting days, Vivo brand has only focused over ‘selfie band wagon’ also witnessed in past phones Vivo V5, V5+.
Let us get into the depth of specifications of this V7+.
V7+ has a full metal design and looks stunning for the fact that its lacks the physical home button. A squarish fingerprint scanner at the back and the rear camera is at corner of the phone. The Full Vision Display does make this phone look appealing to eyes. Overall, the phone is light and definitely compact to carry even when with a 6-inch display.
Vivo V7+ sports a Full vision edge to edge HD display with 18:9 aspect ratio similar to flagship hi end LG G6 & LG Q6 smart phones. A nearly bezel less 5.99-inch display with a 720p HD (1440x720p) resolution, rather than a full HD one is a bit annoying for this price range. The LG Q6 is with 1080p full HD capacity plus at much significantly lower price of Rs 14,990.
Hardware specs & OS:
Vivo V7+ will be having the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor with 14nm technology for better battery life. The phone comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. This phone runs on Android Nougat 7.1.2. with the FunTouch OS on top, which seems a rip off combination of Android and Apple iOS.
Front Selfie Camera and Rear Camera:
The highlight of this phone is the 24MP front camera which has a LED flash too. Now the big Q is whether you really need 24MP camera for your selfies, and whether it is really as good as claimed for such a hefty price?
Vivo V7+ has a 3,225 mAh Li-Po battery. Qualcomm and vivo are claiming efficient battery life thanks to the 14nm processor used in the phone instead of 28nm processor.
Colour Options: The phone will be launched in two colours; one Matte Black and other which is common now a days i.e. Gold.
First of all a 24MP selfie camera might be best on the V7+ but technically speaking I would say it will appeal to most selfie brigade but practically we do not require such high megapixels as it will only increase the image size and resolution. Does everyone need it? Probably no is the reply.
Next is Full Vision Display. Is it good? Yes, but we will see more manufacturers come with this in the future and the 720p resolution doesn’t justify for such a high price.
Finally the pricing is definitely steep for what the phone offers. Priced at Rs 21,990, Vivo V7+ is definitely not an affordable smart phone. The company is clearly charging a higher premium for its camera and display both.
