Vivo has come up with another budget-friendly smartphone with the new Vivo U3.
The Vivo U3 comes with a large 6.53-inch FHD+ screen, with a dewdrop notch that houses a 16-megapixel primary camera.
It then has a triple camera setup on the back. It consists of a 16-megapixel primary shooter, and 8-megapixel ultra-wide and 2-megapixel macro sensors, which offers more usability than the telephoto and depth sensors that other smartphones have. We also have the fingerprint scanner back here.
Under the hood, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor, with an ample 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. We think a 128GB of memory would have been more acceptable for a device at this caliber, but you can easily increase the device’s built-in storage via the microSD expansion slot.
Just like the Vivo Y11 that just came out in Vietnam, the Vivo U3 will come with a generous 5,000mAh battery. On the downside, it still utilizes a microUSB port instead of Type-C.
