After a successful foray into the Indian market in December last year, Chinese smartphone brand Vivo aggressively approached buyers with strategically priced phones. Its recent launches are the X5Pro smartphone and the V1 and V1 Max. 

Priced at Rs 27,980, the dual-SIM Vivo X5 Pro, which was available in China in mid-May, will hit Indian outlets on August 15 this year. Those familiar with the Chinese model may find that the Iris Scanner technology has been incorporated to make the phone more secure. The 6.44 mm thick smartphone has an 8 MP front  camera and a 13 MP rear camera.

Other features include the Funtouch OS 3.0 user interface based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. The phone supports 4G LTE bands and is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. It also has nano-SIM and micro-SIM card slot, both supporting 4G. But the highlight of the phone is the DAC AK4375 chip for hi-fidelity audio. The phone to hit the stores will come in white.

The Vivo V1 and V1 Max are priced at Rs 17,980 and Rs 21,980, respectively. Vivo V1, the first phone in the V series, has a 5-inch HD screen. It is also a dual-SIM smartphone with a 13 MP primary camera along with an 5 MP secondary camera.

Powered by a 64-bit quad core Snapdragon 410 processor and 2GB RAM, the phone offers 16 GB of internal storage and can support microSD cards of up to 128GB. It will be available in silver and golden colours.

The V1 Max has a 5.5-inch HD display and is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core chip and 2GB RAM. It comes with 16 GB storage and a microSD card slot. It is equipped with a 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera and has a 2720 mAh battery. It will only be available in golden colour.
