It’s a repeat for Vivo India to sponsor IPL 2017 just like what it did the last year. However, what’s new this time is its latest smartphone – the Matte Black V5Plus Limited Edition – which is a mark of honor to the phenomenal 10 years of Indian Premier League. The smartphone was launched by Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan at an electrifying event, which was also attended by CEO-BCCI, Rahul Johri. The smartphone sports a VIVO IPL logo at the back, which is a testimony to the wonderful decade-long journey of the Indian Premier League, the most watched sporting extravaganza of the nation.
The Vivo V5 Plus has some incredible specifications under its belt, especially the 20MP Dual Front camera, which is a pioneer feature with respect to selfie shooters. Plus, the dual lenses of the device, 20MP, and 8MP, put a sharp focus on your face while blurring the background for a picture that’s an ultimate treat to the eyes.
“Leading the way through constant creativity and innovation, both brands – IPL & VIVO share a commitment to achieving the highest standards. Our vision to excite and inspire fans is represented by IPL’s success on the pitch and VIVO’s success off it. VIVO came on board last year to become the title sponsor of the premier Twenty20 competition in the world and it has been a mutually rewarding association since then,” said a visibly joyous Rahul Johri.
