Vivo keeps expanding its mid-range portfolio and today they unveiled Vivo Y55s, an affordable smartphone aimed towards emerging markets, equipped with interesting specs and decent battery life.
It appears to be somewhat similar to the Vivo Y55L that was released back in September 2016, but it packs increased RAM, an updated version of Funtouch OS and a higher resolution main camera.
It is powered by a Snapdragon 425 SoC, housing four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 1.4GHz, an Adreno 308 graphics chip, and 3GB of RAM, along with 16GB of storage and microSD slot. The mid-range smartphone packs a 5.2 inch HD display that is protected by 2.5D glass and offers decent protection, it also offers full dual SIM support, as well as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.
On the back, it has a 13MPixel main camera with LED flash and in front, just above the display there’s a 5MPixels selfie camera for your basic… social media sharing needs.
The Vivo Y55s runs on Android 6.0.1 with the Funtouch 3.0 OS proprietary UI sprinkled on top, and packs a 2730 mAh battery for your average everyday use. It will be available for purchase in India from February 26, when prospective buyers will have the option of choosing between 2 color variants: Space Grey and Crown Gold. The smartphone will be priced at 12,490 Indian rupees, so this means that you’ll just have to spend approximately $187 to buy it.
