Just as we keenly await its APEX 2019 to arrive in the coming weeks, phone maker VIVO has again bolstered its lower-level range with the silent introduction of the VIVO Y89 in China earlier today.

The device has a tall-aspect 18:9 with a notched  6.26″ LCD FHD+ display, while it gets the dated Snapdragon 626 SoC mated with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage.

Coated with a pretty black and blue/purple paint job, the VIVO Y89 is adorned at the back with a dual 16MP+2MP camera setup and a fingerprint reader, while a lone 16MP camera sits within the larger notch above the display. It is embedded with a 3,260 mAh battery, while it sadly boot Oreo out of the box.
