McCoy de Leon, member of the all-male dance group Hashtags, former housemate of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky 7, and loyal Vivo user, performed at the event held at SM North Edsa Annex Cyberzone.

For the selfie generation

The V5s Matte Black comes with features that the selfie generation looks for in a premium mobile phone. A 20-megapixel front camera with f2.0 aperture yields sharp, high-resolution pictures with every tap of the screen. Enhancing the brightness of each photo is a larger-than-usual light sensor.


High-definition images of up to 52 megapixels can also be had with the phone’s 13-megapixel rear camera with an f2.2 aperture and ultra-high-definition mode.

Because photos are more fun when they’re shared with family and friends, the V5s Matte Black has a landscape-panning effect that enables everyone to fit in a photo for the ultimate “groufie” shot. Portrait and landscape orientations ensure that no one is left behind or missing in a group picture.

Other advanced features of the V5s Matte Black are the selfie softlight technology, which achieves effects similar to a professional photography studio, including enhanced night mode for stunning selfies in poor lighting conditions; and face beauty mode 6.0, a function that applies beauty touches like softer skin tone or a more masculine look on a subject based on his or her gender.

Multi-taskers will find the V5s Matte Black’s App Clone useful, as it allows them to log on to two different accounts on the same social media app.

The App Clone supports WhatsApp, WeChat, Line, BBM, Zalo, and Viber.

Vivo family

As one of the first members of the Vivo family, De Leon has snapped perfect selfies using his Vivo phone and posted them on social media. The star eagerly shared his experiences with Vivo with his fans and cell phone shoppers.

“Gusto ko siyempreng makilala at mapasaya ang Vivo fans, and this mall tour was a way of bringing them happiness. Masaya rin ako na naibahagi pa sa mas maraming tao kung ano ang Vivo, at kung gaano kaganda ang smartphones ng brand,” he said.


Vivo V5s Matte Black is available in all SM branches nationwide at the suggested retail price of P14,990.
