Just as promised back at the vivo V3Max’s launch event last month, the Chinese company has brought in the smaller, more affordable model of the smartphone, the V3. On top of that, the company is also releasing a new colour variant of the V3max: it now comes in Rose Gold, which will be sold alongside the Gold variant.
As the vivo V3 is a smaller, more affordable variant of the V3Max, it is naturally not as well-equipped. It is packed with a 5-inch 720p IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 1.5GHz octa-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, as well as a non-removable 2,550mAh battery.
In the camera department, the V3 features a 13MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus coupled with an 8MP front-facing shooter. Looking at its specifications, it’s evident that the V3 isn’t exactly a high-end smartphone. That being said, it does boast a metal construction, much like the V3Max. Other than that, it also has a rear fingerprint sensor, which vivo claims is able to unlock the device in only 0.5 seconds.
The vivo V3 is now available for purchase in Malaysia for RM1,099. As for the V3Max in Rose Gold, it retails at RM1,399; this is the same price tag as the Gold variant of the smartphone.
