This time by featuring the world’s only 24MP front-facing camera Vivo V7 Plus brings in high res selfies along with their branded moonlight feature. Adding to this, Vivo has introduced a first portrait bokeh effect using a single camera sensor on the front. Though this bokeh is artificial, its implementation can be surely appreciated.

Vivo V7 Plus comes with a 5.99-inch FullView Display with an 18:9 Aspect Ratio with on-screen buttons and scaling every app perfectly to this new dimensional screen size. Getting such a big display in an ergonomic form factor is commendable and the smartphone not at all feels that big compared to any 6-inch display handset out there.
