Vivo Y71A Passes 3C Certification in China, Launch Imminent?

Another budget-smartphone from Vivo popped up on 3C certification, to be known as Vivo Y71A.


Vivo is working on yet another mid-range budget smartphone dubbed as Vivo Y71A. As the name suggests, this smartphone is a sibling of already launched Vivo Y71. The Vivo Y71A has also been leaked numerous times in the past giving us a bit of information. The Vivo Y71 falls on the budget segment so we can expect the similar pricing for this upcoming device.

Vivo Y71A passed the 3C certification in China

The alleged Y71A smartphone just popped up on 3C certification. Unfortunately, the listing doesn’t reveal anything about the device. To recall, the smartphone was previously spotted on TENAA listing. Unlike 3C certification, the TENAA listing did give us some information on the internals. Apart from the key specification, it also tipped us the images of the device. As per the image, the device will come with a single rear camera setup accompanied by an LED flash. Although, we are not sure whether it will sport a notch on the front or not. The leaked images do show sleek design and thinner bezels meaning good screen-to-body ratio. Since the smartphone has now got the 3C certification, we can expect the device to go official in a month or so.

Vivo Y71A expected specifications, features

If the previous leaks are to be believed, the smartphone will come with a 5.99-inch display having a resolution of 1440×720 pixels. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. For storage, the device features a 32GB of onboard storage which is expandable via MicroSD. In terms of optics, there is a single 13MP primary sensor at the back while the front has a 5MP snapper for selfies. All of this is backed by a 3285mAh battery. Further, Vivo Y71A runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. The device is 7.8mm thick, weighing just 150g.

As mentioned earlier, Vivo Y71A might see the official unveiling in a month or so. On a different note, Vivo is also working on another budget smartphone to be known as Vivo Y81i. It seems like the Chinese smartphone maker has a lot in store for us.
