Another budget 5G phone from Vivo has been introduced. This one belongs to the brand’s popular Y-series, and it is called the Vivo Y30 5G.

The Vivo Y30 5G is powered by — you guessed it — a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor. The same processor used on a lot of affordable 5G devices for quite some time now.


It is paired with a set of specs you’d come to expect from an entry-level device. For one, it has a 6.51-inch screen that sadly only has an HD+ pixel resolution instead of a sharper FHD+. A sensible choice, though, as it wouldn’t be too taxing for the CPU to handle.

A good ol’ waterdrop notch is located on the top to hold the 8-megapixel selfie camera. While on the back, we have a clean design with two large lenses on the top left that holds a sharp 50-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Sadly, it didn’t get to have an ultra-wide lens.


The battery has a 5,000mAh capacity, which is quite standard for a lot of devices these days, no matter what the price. As per Vivo, it can last for up to 15.9 hours of online video streaming. Albeit, charging may take quite some time as it only supports 10W charging. On the upside, it does come with a modern USB Type-C cable.

For software, the Y30 5G ships with Vivo’s Funtouch 12 interface, which is based on the latest Android 12 operating system.

The Vivo Y30 5G is now available in Thailand for a price of THB8,699 (around Php13,200). Devices like this have a huge chance of coming here in the Philippines, so make sure to be on the lookout for it.
