After floating around the rumor mill for a long time, the Vivo Y55s 5G smartphone has finally been launched with a robust battery. On Wednesday, Vivo added another 5G-enabled device to its Y-series portfolio, dubbed the Vivo Y55s 5G. Moreover, the announcement has put rumors surrounding the phone’s specifications and features to rest. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has officially revealed all the specs and other details of the Vivo Y55s smartphone.
Vivo Y55s 5G Price & Availability
The Vivo Y55s 5G smartphone will set you back CNY 1,699 (about INR 20,200) in China. The handset comes in three eye-catching color options. These include Pink, Blue, and Black. Regrettably, the phone’s listing on Vivo’s official website does not divulge details about when it will be going on sale.
Specifications & Features
The most notable feature of the Vivo Y55s is its robust 6000mAh battery. This is the biggest battery Vivo has used in its smartphones yet. Aside from that, the phone will ship with 8GB of RAM and offer a hearty 128GB of onboard storage capacity. Under the hood, it packs a powerful MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset. The front panel houses a 6.58 inch LCD that offers a Full HD resolution. Moreover, it features a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera.
The rear panel, on the other hand, features a 50MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, and a 2MP lens with f/2.4 aperture. The front panel has an 8MP camera for capturing selfies and video calling. The secondary camera comes in handy for taking macro shots. According to Vivo, users will be able to capture an object even from 4 centimeters. Interestingly, the Vivo Y55s doesn’t house a camera dedicated to portrait mode. Likewise, AI (artificial intelligence) camera features are missing as well.
The new Vivo phone will be running Android 11 OS with the company’s OriginOS 1.0 on top. Moreover, the phone’s battery will understandably support 18W fast charging. Furthermore, an USB Type-C port is available for charging the device. On top of that, it has a 3.5 mm headphone jack for a seamless music listening experience. An earlier report suggests that its dimensions are 163.87 x 75.33 x 9.17 mm and it weighs 199 grams.
Moreover, the Vivo Y55s will support gaming, provided users play them with moderate settings. The phone will probably be available in an 8GB RAM+128 storage variant. However, the built-in storage capacity could be expanded with the help of a micro SD card slot. Overall, the phone carries a reasonable price tag, and offers a slew of awe-inspiring features.
