Vivo has announced the V7+ smartphone in India back in September. The V7+ is company’s first device that offers a FullView display, along with a 24-megapixel Moonlight front shooter. Now, Vivo has unveiled the V7 smartphone in Indonesia, with new handset set to launch in India on November 20. The Vivo V7 is a slightly less powerful version of the V7+, arriving with some toned-down specs and a cheaper price tag.
The most notable differences between the Vivo V7 and the V7+ are the displays, storage and batteries. The V7 comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ FullView display, 32GB storage, and 3000mAh battery, while the V7+ had a 5.99-inch HD+ FullView display, 64GB storage and 3225mAh battery.
Other than the aforementioned differences, the two smartphones are identical in terms of specs and looks. The V7 and V7+ are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform, backed by Adreno 506 GPU and 4GB of RAM (P.S: Internal storage can be expanded via microSD card slot).
Both the handsets sport a 16MP rear camera, a front-facing 24MP shooter, and, yes, Face unlocking feature also there. Other camera features include FaceBeauty 7.0 and Portrait mode. Moreover, with the shift to an 18:9 aspect ratio display, Vivo moved the fingerprint reader from the front to the back. Just like V7+, the Vivo V7 features a metal body for a premium look and feel.
