NBA superstar Stephen Curry has been tapped by Vivo, the top five premium global brand, as the official endorser of all its newest smartphones. This includes the latest addition to the V5 line, the Vivo V5 Lite with a 16-megapixel front camera.
Trusted by no less than the Golden State Warriors point guard and two-time MVP, the V5 Lite has captured the hearts of the selfie-centric local market thanks to its premium specifications and reasonable price of P9,990.
Curry has even stated that he and Vivo share the same values: energy, professionalism, and pleasure.
At the grand launch of the Vivo brand in the Philippines last year, the NBA star expressed his gratitude for being its ambassador. He also shared his excitement about being involved in the brand’s future events. “I’m looking forward to doing more activities with Vivo and its plans in the Philippines,” Curry said.
Gaining fame in the sports industry because of his consistent outstanding performances, Curry embodies what Vivo stands for.
“Stephen Curry is exactly the brand ambassador that Vivo wants to represent its phones, because like Curry, the brand used perseverance and hard work to make its mark in the smartphone industry. Today, we are the fifth best-selling smartphone manufacturer in the world,” Vivo Philippines Brand Director Annie Lim said.
The Vivo V5 Lite is the newest member of the V5 family. Its launch is on the heels of the release of the V5 and V5 Plus, all with advanced selfie technology.
With a 16-megapixel front camera, the V5 Lite has the highest front camera quality among smartphones of the same price range. Its selfie features include a selfie softlight and a natural front camera flash. There’s also the face beauty mode 6.0, a tool that enhances the skin tone, removes blemishes, and applies appropriate beauty retouches.
The V5 Lite also comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera. The main snapper has a f/2.2 aperture and an ultra-high-definition mode of up to 52 megapixels. It also has a 5.5-inch display, corning gorilla glass, unibody curved design, and metallic back cover.
For storage, the latest Vivo phone has a 3GB RAM and a 32GB ROM, expandable up to 256 GB. The V5 Lite runs on Funtouch 3.0 based on Android 6.0 and an MTK6750 Octacore processor.
Other features include an eye protection mode that prevents eye strain and capability to make the screen light softer. There’s also the smart split 2.0, which splits the screen in two, accommodating two tasks simultaneously.
