Vivo has launched the much-anticipated smartphone from the company which is the Vivo V7+. The Vivo V7+ comes with a Full-Vision display which is the same as the displays seen on the recent flagship smartphones like the LG G6, LG V30, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 which was launched recently.
The Full View display on the Vivo V7+ has a 5.99-inch display with minimal bezels and the top of the screen only consists of a camera and the speaker grill. At the bottom, the Vivo V7+ does not include a physical home button which has been present on all the Vivo smartphones until now. The Vivo V7+ has a square-shaped fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone which is located below the camera of the smartphone.
Talking about the camera, the Vivo V7+ has a single rear camera unlike the other smartphones launched this year with a Dual camera setup on the rear. Looking at the specifications of the Vivo V7+, the smartphone comes with a 5.99-inch Full-Vision display and the resolution of the phone is 1440 x 720 pixels and the aspect ratio of the device comes down to 18:9. The company claims that the Vivo V7+ has a screen-to-body ratio of 84% which means that the front of the phone only has 16% of the body and the rest is the screen.
The selfie camera on the Vivo V7+ which is also the main selling point of the smartphone is a 24-megapixel sensor which is capable of capturing portrait modes as seen on the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5 where the background gets blurred. The front camera is accompanied with Selfie flash for better night time photos. The back of the phone has a conventional single camera setup which is a 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture and phase detection autofocus.
Also, as seen on the devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8+, the Vivo V7+ also comes with a face scanner so that the device can be unlocked by face recognition as well. The Vivo V7+ is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor which is clocked at 1.8Ghz and this processor is an Octa-core one. The company claims that the Vivo V7+ will have better battery life, performance as well as improved graphics with the inclusion of Snapdragon 450 chipset on the device.
