Vivo is really sticking to the new display notch design movement. We initially saw it in the Vivo V9 and it was then carried on to their other midrange devices, including the new Vivo Y83, their new budget-friendly smartphone.
Other than the screen notch, the Vivo Y83 also comes with the new MediaTek Helio P22 chipset — making it one of the first smartphones to sport this fresh-from-the-oven processor.
This means that the Vivo Y83 will have better performance, AI prowess, power efficiency, and all the improvements you’d come to expect from a new chipset.
Going back to the display, what we are seeing here is a 6.22-inch IPS screen, with a 1520 x 720 resolution, and a taller 19:9 aspect ratio that was made possible by the screen notch on top.
Speaking of the notch, this tiny design touch on top houses the earpiece, different sensors, and the 8-megapixel selfie camera. It is equipped with a slew of AI Beautification, AR stickers, and more.
At the back, there’s the 13-megapixel primary camera together with an LED flash. It doesn’t have a dual-camera system, which is only reserved for their higher-end offerings.
On the brighter side, the Vivo Y83 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with FunTouch OS 4.0 on top. That’s the same interface found on Vivo’s current smartphones, even the more expensive handsets.
