Smartphone race isn't getting any easier. With every passing day, we hear something about a new smartphone and keeps the competition going. Chinese players have gained a prominent spot in the global smartphone market, and Vivo is one such brand with significant fame.
In India, Vivo has enjoyed immense success with its V-series and Y-series smartphones even though it faces stiff competition from OPPO, Xiaomi, and others. As the company tries to remain consumer's favourite, a new smartphone has arrived with two of the most popular features from the Vivo V7.
The new handset is Vivo Y75, adding to the company's ever-expanding Y-series, which brings a FullView display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a facial unlocking feature called "Face Wake". Since it's a Y-series smartphone, the pricing is lower than that of the premium V-series. But before you get excited, the Y75 hasn't arrived in India – yet.
Vivo Y75 is listed on the company's China website with a price tag of ¥1598 (about Rs. 15,500), and it comes in Gold, Matte Black, and Rose Gold colours.
Besides the two main features, the Y75 packs some interesting specs to compel budget shoppers. The handset is powered by an unnamed octa-core processor paired with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage with microSD card support.
Vivo Y75 comes 5.7-inch HD+ display, a 13MP rear-facing camera with LED flash and a 16MP sensor takes care of your selfies. The smartphone gets its power from a 3,000mAh battery onboard, and it still measures 7.9mm in width.
Vivo Y75 runs Android 7.1 Nougat with Funtouch OS 3.2, has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, supports 4G LTE, dual SIM cards, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, and 3.5mm headphone jack. Any information on the phone's international availability is unknown at this moment, but if Vivo is planning its release outside China it'll make it a point to drop breadcrumbs. Stay tuned for updates.
