Smartphone maker Vivo has announced a new mid-range smartphone, called the Vivo Y55 5G, in Taiwan. The phone is said to have a 60Hz display and has a triple-camera setup on the back, similar to most other mid-ranged smartphones today.
It seems like the same device that has been leaked a few times since November last year, which means that Vivo is probably starting the rollout of the device in specific markets now.
The Vivo Y55 5G is priced at NTD 7,990, which translates to approximately Rs 21,500, but its final price in India could actually be lower. Country-specific prices are usually not direct translations of currency rates.
Vivo Y55 specifications and features
As seen on a leak that came via the Geekbench benchmark back in November, the Vivo Y55 5G runs on the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, with 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage inside.
In addition, the triple camera setup on the back is led by a 50 megapixel primary camera, along with a 2 megapixel macro camera, and a second 2 megapixel depth sensor. There’s also a 5000 mAh battery inside that supports 18W fast charging, and the device runs on Vivo’s in-built Funtouch OS 12 operating system, which is layered on top of Android 11 out of the box.
The Vivo Y55 5G has a 6.58 inch display with FHD resolution and 441 ppi pixel density. It has 20:9 aspect ratio along with a waterdrop notch that holds the front camera, and 81 percent screen-to-body ratio. It has a power button and volume rocker on the left of the device, while there’s an 8MP camera on the front as well.
It’s also worth noting that the pricing mentioned above is for the 4GB/128GB variant of the device, and there’s only one version for this phone in Taiwan. It’s unclear whether vivo will have multiple variants in India, with different pricing. To be sure, 4GB RAM is usually reserved for budget devices in the country nowadays.
