Vivo V7 smartphone has been unveiled in Pakistan for Rs. 29,999 which is a member of its selfie-shooter family, V series. The phone comes with the features as powerful as the bigger brother V7+ that was launched a month back in the local market amid a colorful ceremony.
Both the smartphones carry many similarities apart from the display size of V7 which is a 5.7 inches, whereas, V7+ has 5.99 inches.
With the screen-to-body ratio of 83.6%, the full-view display offers 1440×720 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio which is 12.5% bigger from a phone of similar size.
