The Vivo Y83 is powered by the recently announced Helio P22 processor which is manufactured using TSMC’s 12nm FinFET manufacturing process, offering eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The phone packs 4GB RAM and runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Let’s check out the remaining specifications of the phone in detail.
