Vivo India Clarifies 24MP, Snapdragon 450 Controversy in V7 Plus Smartphone


Vivo has quite a good foothold in India like Oppo and Samsung, especially in offline market. Today at a press event in Mumbai, they have launched V7+, a selfie oriented smartphone aimed at the younger generation. Following the trend of 18:9 display which they are calling FullView, they have added a 24 MP front camera to woo new customers.

For the past few days, We’ve been reading about an allegation against the vendor regarding the incorrect specifications. The company launched their smartphone as a selfie centric one. With the incredible 24-megapixel front camera, the device has attracted many eyes. The device runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 chipset. The real problem starts here. According to the specifications of Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, that chipset’s maximum camera capacity is 21-megapixel. But Vivo comes with a 24-megapixel camera using that processor. We were waiting to receive an official confirmation from the brand regarding this issue.

Today, we have received the following statement from Vivo that claims the following:

“We appreciate your interest in Vivo and our products. Vivo would like to reiterate that the new Vivo V7+ front camera sensor is indeed capable of shooting 24MP photos. The Qualcomm website will be updated shortly to include support of this specification. We always guarantee the authenticity of our information, as well as our dedication to innovation and our consumers.”
