After the global launch of the Vivo X90 and Vivo X90 Pro, the brand is launching a set of new mid-range phones. Vivo is now preparing for the launch of the Vivo V27 series, and meanwhile, is introducing new Vivo Y-series phones. Today, it’s time for the Vivo Y56 5G to leave the cover. It’s a modern low-end phone with a Dimensity 700 CPU.
Vivo Y56 5G specifications
The Vivo Y56 5G packs a 6.58-inch LCD screen with a Full HD+ resolution. The phone has a waterdrop notch, which is usual for the budget category. There is no mention of a refresh rate, so we are sure it has just the regular 60 Hz. The phone has fairly thick bezels all around and a large chin. The selfie snapper is a 16 MP camera.
Moving around to the back, there is a dual-camera setup. It sits inside a rectangular island that also houses a LED flash stripe. The main camera is a 50 MP shooter, and it doubles with a 2 MP depth helped. Vivo teases the Vivo Y56 5G as a 50 MP Super Night Camera.
