WE knew it was coming. The writing has been on the wall ever since the Vivo V5 made it to stores in the Philippines. Now, the good news is official: Vivo Philippines has dropped the price of the Vivo V3 (click for complete specs) to P7,990 (around $160) — from P11,990 ($240).

Yep. You’re looking at a discount THIS HUGE, and at that price, the V3 is just begging to be explored further, if you haven’t already done so. The price cut comes in the wake of Vivo launching the V3 successor in the Philippines back in November. A great selfie shooter (and then some), the V5 is priced at P12,990 ($260) in local retail.

The Vivo V3, with its 8-megapixel front camera, is no slouch at taking self-portraits, either. And though the image quality drops off, particularly in low light, the phone, surprising as it may be, carries a more powerful chipset in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 616.

Other specs include a 5-inch screen at 720p resolution; 3GB of RAM; up to 32GB of expandable storage; a 13-megapixel rear-facer; a 2,550mAh battery; and Android 5.1 Lollipop, which could be a deal-breaker for people who prefer living on the bleeding edge of Android software. The handset also features a metal unibody and a fingerprint sensor on the back.

We’re not sure if the discount has an expiration date on it. So assuming you’re interested, you may want to get the handset before the offer period ends, or stocks run out. At its current price, the Vivo V3 is a really good deal.
