vivo, as a brand, is known for introducing disruptive smartphones with unique and innovative designs and technology that set standards in the industry. Once-ubiquitous pop-up cameras and now-ubiquitous in-display fingerprint scanners have been pioneered by vivo. The Y-series from the brand is known for redefining expectations from mid-range smartphones with great design, exemplary cameras, and powerful batteries.
The newly launched vivo Y200 5G takes that ideology several notches above. With a brilliant display, stunning nature-inspired design, and unparalleled imaging prowess in the segment, the vivo Y200 5G builds on the legacy of the Y series. Let’s take a look at what the all-new vivo Y200 5G has to offer.
A Head-Turning Design Inspired by Nature
The vivo Y200 5G sticks to the brand’s ethos of offering an aesthetically pleasing and sleek smartphone. It features a stunning Fluorite AG glass back panel with textured highlights, which shows a unique pattern under light. Moreover, at 7.69mm, the vivo Y200 5G is one of the slimmest smartphones in the mid-range with a flagship in-hand feel.
Elevating the whole design is the two colour options inspired by nature. The first is the Desert Gold, inspired by the majestic Thar Desert. This shade is designed to replicate the sand ripples in the desert as the morning light hits it. The second hue is Jungle Green, a dark green colourway replicating the flora in the thick of a jungle. No matter which option you pick, you will love looking at the smartphone whenever you take it out.
The Y200 5G is not only attractive but is pretty sturdy too. vivo has put the smartphone through various durability tests to ensure that it withstands scratches, weather elements, and drops.
Next-Level Portrait and Night Photography With Smart Aura Light
The vivo Y series is known for offering the most powerful camera setups in the mid-range segment, and the Y200 5G is not an exception. It has a dual-camera setup on the back featuring a 64MP primary lens with f/1.79 aperture and OIS backed by an f/2.4 2 MP bokeh lens. On the front is a 16 MP texture portrait camera with an aperture of f/2.0. Both front and back cameras can capture stunningly detailed pictures in daylight.
But the rear camera truly shines when clicking portraits, thanks to the Smart Aura Light. With the diameter of the outer ring being 12.4mm, the Smart Aura Light on the vivo Y200 5G is the largest ever by the brand. vivo claims the Smart Aura Light on the Y200 5G offers 360-degree uniform lighting with a large light-emitting area. Whether shooting in warm or cool lighting, the Smart Aura Light gives users 38 adjustable levels of colour temperatures to get that perfect lighting for well-illuminated and aesthetically pleasant shots.
When used in portrait mode, the Smart Aura Light creates DSLR-like portrait shots. Vivo has added several night or complex light source scenes, which adjust the aura light based on the complex cool and warm light sources. These include indoor concerts, restaurants, candlelight parties, urban neon lights, dark parties/ dinners, and more. No matter where you are, you can rest assured that portraits from the vivo Y200 5G will be flawless.

Additionally, there are artistic bokeh filters like French Impression, Vintage Film, and Party Portrait for quirky yet dazzling portrait pictures. Vivo has also improved the flash portrait on Y200 5G, creating a flash strobe similar to an old camera flash for a crystal clear and bright image.

Capturing pictures and videos at night can be challenging, but that’s not the case with the Y200 5G. Thanks to the flagship-grade OIS module, the camera setup captures 6 times more light with reduced shakes to click images that are free of noise and highly detailed.
