Vivo recently expanded its Y-series lineup of budget-friendly smartphones with the introduction of the Vivo Y17. A new leak that has surfaced online suggests the company will soon launch another new Y-series smartphone. Allegedly dubbed Vivo Y3, the smartphone is tipped to be launched in the manufacturer’s home market soon.
Vivo Y3 to Debut in China Soon
According to the new leak, Vivo Y3 will be priced around CNY 1,400 in China. Based on the current exchange rate, that converts to approximately INR 14,300. As you can see in the render above, Vivo Y3 will sport a waterdrop notch display similar to other recent Y-series smartphones from the company. On the back of the phone, we can see a triple-camera setup with an LED flash module placed below it. We can also see a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. In addition to the Peach Powder color variant seen above, the smartphone will reportedly be available in Peacock Blue as well. Like other budget-friendly phones from Vivo, the Y3 will have a polycarbonate build. Even though a specific date has not been confirmed, the leak suggests the Vivo Y3 will be made official in China sometime before the end of this month.
Vivo Y3 Leaked Specifications
The Vivo Y3 is said to feature a 6.35-inch waterdrop notch display with 720 x 1544 HD+ resolution. It will have a 12nm MediaTek Helio P35 octa-core processor under the hood, clocked at up to 2.3 GHz. In the Chinese market, the Y3 is expected to be offered in two memory configurations: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 4GB RAM + 128GB storage. It is likely that the smartphone will include a microSD card slot for further expansion up to 256GB.
When it comes to optics, the leak suggests Vivo Y3 will feature a 13MP + 8MP + 2MP triple-camera setup on the back. Housed within the waterdrop notch at the top of the smartphone’s display will be an 8MP selfie camera with an AI Portrait mode. Fueling the internals of the Vivo Y3 will be a massive 5000mAh capacity battery with fast charging support. The dimensions of the phone are claimed to be 159.43 x 76.77 x 8.92mm. Unsurprisingly, the Vivo Y3 will only have a MicroUSB port and not a USB Type-C port. While there is no mention about the OS version, we can expect the Y3 to run on Vivo’s latest Funtouch 9.0 based on Android Pie out of the box.
