What do the IPL, actress Soha Ali Khan and the colour black have in common? The V5Plus limited edition smartphone of course! Vivo, the title sponsor of the premier Twenty20 competition, has launched this special edition phone in a beautiful matte black for ardent fans of cricket. Engraved with the VIVOIPL logo at the back, this phone seems like a real stunner not just for its connection to the IPL but also for its unbeatable features. Here’s a sneak peak.

Vivo V5Plus limited edition phone

Vivo has brought out the matte black V5Plus limited edition phone to celebrate ten years of IPL and it comes powered with an incredible dual 20 MP and 8 MP front camera. It offers the kind of depth of field that you normally get only  in high-end cameras. Imagine the character your selfies would have, with the beautifully blurred background which is enhanced by the digitally optical algorithm to generate an amazing Bokeh effect. I for one, can’t wait to try it for myself. At 16MP, the rear camera is impressive as well. The phone promises a rich user experience with a 5.5FHD display with Corning Gorilla glass. It runs on Funtouch OS 3.0 Operating system based on Android 6.0 and is powered by the robust Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core CPU.


Vivo has fast become one of the leading smartphone brands in India and with its association with India’s favourite cricket championship, it’s set to top the popularity charts. Rahul Johri, CEO – BCCI says, “Leading the way through constant creativity and innovation, both brands – IPL & Vivo share a commitment to achieving the highest standards. Vivo came on board last year to become the title sponsor of the premier Twenty20 competition in the world and it has been a mutually rewarding association since then.” Vivo India currently has its presence in more than 400 cities in 22 states, with a strong focus on camera and music. Vivo is one of the fastest growing companies in India and one of the top 10 smartphone brands in the world.


Truth be told, we only need a reason to splurge on a shiny new smartphone. And if the VIVO IPL month is your favourite one in the entire year, it makes sense to break the bank to get this phone. And Rs 25,990, it’s definitely within reach. Vivek Zhang, CMO, Vivo India has this to say, “The idea behind the launch of a limited edition phone was to offer our consumers not just the phone but an experience they can cherish for a lifetime. We have given the strictest attention to the design and feel of the phone and our focus is to offer an exclusive experience to the cricket crazy audience.”
