vivo Malaysia has finally launched another version of their latest flagship device, the V7 comes as a smaller package compared to the .
vivo Malaysia has brought in another member to the ‘V’ Series, famous for its 24MP front-facing camera as well as a new FullView display.
Since we’re on the subject of the camera, the V7 comes with the aforementioned 24MP selfie shooter with vivo’s photography algorithms to create more natural looking selfies.
The selfie camera sports an aperture size of f/2.0 while the primary shooter comes with 16MP with the same f/2.0 aperture size. The V7 also comes with the popular “Portrait Mode” for the camera.
Now onto the design. The vivo V7 is basically a smaller version of the V7+ but aside from that shares pretty much the same underpinnings.
It comes with a 5.7-inch FullView display (720×1440 pixels @ 282 ppi) which is a lot of screen for such a small body frame that usually houses a screen size of just 5.2 inches.
vivo says the screen offers 12.5% more visual display as compared to the run of the mill 16:9 screen.
Speaking of ratios, the V7’s screen measures at 83.6% of screen-to-body ratio which makes viewing content such as videos and images a lot more convenient.
As for the mechanical bits, the V7 runs on Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor and comes with 4GB of RAM while internal storage is rated at 32GB.
Of course, there is a storage expansion via micro-SD card slot which is expandable up to 256GB of storage. As standard, the V7 will run on Android 7.1.2 (Nougat).
Apart from the regular fingerprint sensor located on the back of the phone, there is also an alternative option of security. That said option is vivo’s “Face Access” technology, similar to what OPPO is doing with the latest F5.

Colour options for the V7 incude black or gold. It retails for MYR1,299 and will go on sale beginning 25 November 2017.
