Numerous leaks in the recent past had suggested that Vivo would soon launch a smartphone called the Vivo S1 with triple rear cameras and a Helio P65 chipset. There was a bit of confusion as another smartphone with the same name but with a pop-up selfie camera already exists for the Chinese market. Now, some of the doubt has been cleared up as the aforementioned leaked smartphone was just launched in China under the Vivo Y7s branding.
Vivo Y7s Specifications, Features
The newly launched Vivo Y7s comes with a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED screen that sports a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. On top, there is a waterdrop notch, while underneath we have a photoelectric in-display fingerprint scanner. This screen is said to achieve close to 90 percent screen-to-body ratio and comes with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. This display is also rated to cover 105 percent of the NTSC color space.
The Vivo Y7s is rocking a MediaTek Helio P65 chipset that offers a quad-core CPU with two Cortex-A75 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores, all of which run at clock speeds of 2.0GHz. As for the GPU, the chipset makes use of an ARM Mali-G52 which is rated to be faster than the Mali-G72 found on the Helio P60. As for memory, this smartphone rocks 6GB of RAM, which has been paired with 128GB of internal storage. MicroSD card support has been provided, and you can add an extra 256GB using one. As for software, the smartphone runs Android 9 Pie-based Funtouch OS 9.
As far as imaging is concerned, the Vivo Y7s has you covered with three vertically stacked cameras at the back and a single selfie shooter at the front. The top-most rear camera is an 8MP wide-angle shooter, in the middle, we have a 16MP Sony IMX499 primary camera, and the third is a 2MP sensor that captures depth data. An LED flash is located just underneath this setup. Coming to the front, we have another 16MP AI selfie camera. A few of the standout features within the camera app include Pro Mode, Ai Beauty, Portrait, HDR backlight, panorama, and document correction.
This entire contraption is powered by a massive 4500mAh battery that supports dual-engine fast charging. Unfortunately, the phone still makes use of the dated microUSB standard for charging. This is a dual SIM phone that supports 4G VoLTE along with dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Since this phone has only launched in China thus far, there is a dedicated button that can be used to trigger Jovi AI.
