Well, the design and specs of this smartphone are not entirely new to this brand. While listing the specs and features of this new smartphone, one other Vivo product comes to mind, the Vivo V7+ which was launched only last month. These smartphones (Vivo Y79 and Vivo V7+) are identical twins with the only significant difference being their batteries. While the Vivo Y79 comes with a 3,150mAh battery, its “twin”, Vivo V7+ packs a larger 3,225mAh battery.
Interestingly, there is a third device which TENAA has approved called Vivo Y79A and the only difference between this device and the Y79 is its support for CDMA 2000 networks.
