The phone has an 8MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash. The camera can record full HD resolution video. The smartphone also has a 5MP front camera and 16GB of internal storage.

The smartphone processor is paired with 1GB of RAM. Power comes from a Lithium ion 2000 mAh internal battery. The Vivo 4.8HD measures 137 x 70 x 6.9mm and weighs 135 grams. The phone is available in pink, green, white, and black colors for $249.
