Vivo taps NBA star Stephen Curry as brand ambassador
January 23, 2017
VIVO, a premium smartphone brand, tapped international basketball superstar Stephen Curry as the brand ambassador and official endorser of all Vivo phones, including its breakthrough flagship product Vivo V5 Plus, considered the perfect selfie phone because it is equipped with the world’s first 20 megapixel dual front cameras.
“With Vivo being a premium brand, it’s only fitting that we choose the best ambassador for it,” Vivo brand director, Annie Lim, said of their chosen brand ambassador.
The NBA superstar, two-time MVP and Golden State Warriors’ point guard had earlier expressed his excitement in the Vivo grand launch last November, when he was first revealed as the official ambassador for all upcoming Vivo phone models. “I’m really thankful for being part of the Vivo family and I’m looking forward to more activities with Vivo,” Curry said. The Perfect Selfie phone comes with 20-megapixel primary and 8-megapixel secondary front cameras and advanced selfie features, such as the ‘bokeh’ effect, face beauty mode 6.0, and selfie soft light.
Designed with a 5.5-inch large display, ultra-slim bezel technology, and 5th generation Corning Gorilla glass with enhanced scratch resistance, Vivo V5 Plus is the perfect blend of style, convenience, and function.
For speed and efficient performance, the Perfect Selfie phone is run by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, paired with Vivo’s Funtouch OS based on Android 6.0, with a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, to boot.
Sound-wise, the V5 Plus uses the Vivo’s premium Hi-Fi system, the AK4376.
Finally, the newest Vivo model has an updated fingerprint technology for quick launching, and a fast-charging feature, according to International Data Corp. (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker.
