Vivo has silently brought the Y12A to the Philippines as its latest entry-level smartphone.

The Vivo Y12A features a quite familiar design on the back with rainbow hues that comes in Phantom Black and Glacier Blue. On the front, there’s a 6.51-inch HD+ screen with the traditional waterdrop notch for the selfie camera.


On the back, we have a pretty basic 13-megapixel main camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The clean look was thanks to the fingerprint scanner being side-mounted, doubling as the lock/power switch.

Under the hood, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. On the upside, it has an enormous 5,000mAh battery but only 10W charging. Vivo’s Multi-Turbo 3.0 is also present for the best possible performance when gaming.


All those humble features result in an affordable price of Php6,499. It should be available on physical stores by now as it’s currently up for sale on Vivo’s website.
