The Real Story about Vivo V7 Plus!
Unfortunately, we came across few finding that will horrify you as we are. By going through the Press Release of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 we came to know the real story. The Press Release says this about camera support :
The Snapdragon 450 is the first in the 400-tier to support real-time Bokeh (Live Bokeh) effects. It is also designed to improve on previous generations by including support for enhanced dual camera at 13+13MP, or single camera support up to 21MP; hybrid autofocus; and 1080p video capture and playback at up to 60fps, enabling slow motion capture.
This is the real truth, the Snapdragon 450 can support only up to 21MP on a single camera. Then how it has whopping 24 MP front camera. Not just this much, while exploring more we found that the CPU X : System & Hardware info Android App shows even worst specs.
This report showed just 19.7 MP front camera, then how Vivo can say it is 24 MP front camera. Oh My God, so false marketing is done by this Chinese company. In spite of being a smartphone with a super cool front camera, this issue had made Vivo to answer lots of questions.
We have tried to reach Vivo for seeking their response on this allegation. But till now we have not received any update on it. Follow Us on Facebook and Twitter to know more about this issue.
