Vivo V7+: Full Specs, Top features, India price & Everything
The Vivo V7+, launched in India on Thursday, has a near bezel-less screen and lots of megapixels in the selfie camera department. The phone comes with a 6-inch screen but because Vivo has shaved off its bezels, the V7+ feels much smaller in the hands. As for the selfie shooter, well, Vivo phones are known for ridiculously high megapixel counts in their cameras so it comes as no surprise that the V7+ ships with a whopping 24-megapixel camera on the front.
Let’s take a quick look at Vivo’s new V7+:
Processor: The Vivo V7+ is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor clubbed with Adreno 506GPU.
Internal storage: It comes with 64GB of internal storage which is further expandable by up to 256GB via a dedicated micro-SD card slot.
Screen: The Vivo V7+ comes with a 6-inch 720p IPS LCD display with a 1440×720 pixel resolution.
Rear camera: The phone comes with a 16-megapixel camera on the rear with LED flash. The rear camera can record 1080p videos.
Front camera: On the front, the V7+ comes with a whopping 24-megapixel camera with LED flash. The front camera can record 1080p videos.
Software: The phone runs Android 7.1.2-based Funtouch OS 3.2 which is Vivo’s custom ROM.
Battery: The V7+ is backed by a 3,225mAh battery. Fast charging isn’t supported.
— While Vivo phones are known for ridiculously high megapixel counts in their cameras, they’re largely seen as an iPhone tip-off from the get-go. The V7+ changes things, as it looks nothing like the iPhone.
— The most striking aspect of the Vivo V7+ — as opposed to Vivo’s previous offerings – is its design. The V7+ is an edge-to-edge or bezel-less phone, which means much like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the LG V30, Vivo’s new phone has an unusually tall screen and an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9. Vivo calls it Full View: a concept that gives Vivo’s new phone a screen-to-body ratio of 84.4 per cent.The V7+ is a 6-inch phone, but because Vivo has shaved off much of the top and bottom bezels as well as the bezels on the sides, the phone occupies a smaller footprint. It feels smaller in the hands.
— The concept of a bezel-less screen is fast becoming the new industry norm, it seems. The concept isn’t restricted to the top-tier flagship segment any more, even as companies like Micromax and LG have recently made it more mainstream, courtesy the Micromax Canvas Infinity and the LG Q6. The Vivo V7+ is notably the third phone – in India – belonging to the mid-level price segment to ship with a new bezel-less screen, meaning the phone is designed from grounds-up for multimedia consumption.
— The screen resolution of the Vivo V7+ is, however, HD or 720p which is a little disappointing. The Micromax Canvas Infinity also comes with a similar 1440×720 pixels resolution but that phone costs just Rs 9,999. The LG Q6, meanwhile, comes with more pixels, more precisely 2160×1080 pixels resolution and costs Rs 14,990. The Vivo V7+ which costs more should have at least come with a 1080p screen.
— In terms of all-round design, the Vivo V7+ comes with a full-metal body with discreet antenna lines and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The phone comes with curved 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the front. The phone weighs in at 160 gram and measures only 7.7mm in thickness.
The V7+ comes with Vivo’s proprietary “AK4376 dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip which provides an unparalleled sound quality, giving a signal-to-noise ratio of up to 115dB” according to the company.
