Vivo is now working on another budget smartphone dubbed as Vivo Y81i. The smartphone, as the name suggests, would be another variant of the already-launched Vivo Y81. Just like Vivo Y71i, the smartphone is going to be a cheaper and budget-friendly alternative to Y81. Vivo Y81 went on the sale for the first time somewhere in the month of August. There was not that much information available on Vivo Y81i until now. We now know everything about the device including design and internal hardware.
