After the successful launches of its V5, V5 Plus, and V5 Lite, Vivo kicks off SM Cybermonth on August 1with the relaunch of the latest edition of the perfect selfie smartphone, the Vivo V5s Matte Black. McCoy de Leon, member of the all-male dance group Hashtags, former housemate of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky 7, and loyal Vivo user, will entertain fans with his slick dance moves during the launch at the SM North Edsa Annex Cyberzone. mccoy-2   Features Sporting a cool and minimalist matte black finish, the V5s Matte Black comes with all the features that the selfie generation looks for in a premium mobile phone. A 20-megapixel front camera with f2.0 aperture yields sharp, high-resolution pictures with every tap of the screen. Enhancing the brightness of each photo is a larger-than-usual light-sensing area, which allows more light in. High-definition images of up to 52 megapixels can also be had with the phone’s 13-megapixel rear camera with an f2.2 aperture and ultra-high-definition mode. Because photos are more fun when they’re shared with family and friends, the V5s Matte Black has a landscape-panning effect that enables every member of your barkada to fit in a photo for the ultimate “groufie” shot. Portrait and landscape orientations ensure that no one is left behind or missing in a group picture. Other advanced features of the V5s Matte Black are the selfie softlight technology, which achieves effects similar to a professional photography studio, including enhanced night mode for stunning selfies in poor lighting conditions; and face beauty mode 6.0, a function that applies beauty touches like softer skin tone or a more masculine look on a subject based on his or her gender. Multi-taskers will certainly find the V5s Matte Black’s App Clone useful, as it allows them to log on to two different accounts on the same social media app. The App Clone supports popular chat apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Line, BBM, Zalo, and Viber.   Bringing happiness As one of the first member of the Vivo Family, McCoy de Leon has snapped numerous perfect selfies using his Vivo phone and posted them on social media. The star is eager to share his experiences with Vivo with his fans and cell phone shoppers. “Gusto ko siyempreng makilala at mapasaya ang mga Vivo fans, and this mall tour is a way of bringing them happiness. Masaya rin ako na ibahagi pa sa mas maraming tao kung ano ang Vivo, at kung gaano kaganda ang smartphones ng brand,” he says.
