After launching the Vivo Y30 smartphone in Malaysia, the Chinese smartphone maker is now planning to bring the device to the Indian market. The affordable mid-range smartphone will further expand the company’s Y-lineup offering in the country. It comes with all the current popular trends namely punch-hole cutout, quad rear cameras, massive battery, and more. Well, here is everything we know about the launch, availability, and specs of the device.
Vivo Y30 Indian Launch, Availability
As per the recent report by 91Mobiles, Vivo might bring its latest Vivo Y30 smartphone to India as soon as early June. As per the report, some Vivo officials have revealed the first week of June as the possible timeline for the device’s launch. Sadly, we don’t have any information on the pricing aspect. To recall, Vivo Y30 comes with a price tag of MYR 899 that is roughly INR 15,000 (or $198).
Considering the device is gonna fall under the mid-range smartphone segment, we should see the phone touting a similar price tag. Furthermore, Vivo might go with aggressive pricing to compete with other brands. If the early June timeline is anywhere true, we should then be hearing more about the device in the coming days or weeks.
Gizchina News of the week
Since the device is already official in Malaysia, we know every single thing about the internals and design of the product. To recall, Vivo Y93 is equipped with a 6.47-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1560 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 266 PPI. The display comes with thin bezels on the side and a punch-hole cutout on the top left corner. This results in an 82.9% screen-to-body-ratio. Under the hood, we’re looking at a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB onboard memory.
In terms of optics, there is a quad-camera module at the back accompanied by an LED flash. The module consists of a 13MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide angle lens, and two 2MP sensors. For selfies and video calling, we’re looking at an 8MP front snapper housed inside the notch. All of these run on a massive 5,000 mAh battery packed inside. Sadly, there is no information about whether the fast charging support is there or not.
On the software front, the device runs on an Android 10 operating system with FunTouch OS 10 on top. For biometrics, there is a physical capacitive fingerprint sensor at the back. Lastly, we’re looking at dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity.
