We’re almost done with the first half of 2018. And in the second part of the year, we expect smartphone brands to come up with more devices before the year ends.
One of those who is eager in releasing new handsets is Vivo. Just recently, the company launched the Vivo Y71 — a budget-friendly handset for the masses. A few weeks later, there are already rumors about an upcoming new release from this manufacturer.
This new leak points out not one, but two upcoming smartphones from the Chinese tech company. Dubbed as the Vivo Y75s and Y83, this duo is expected to join the brand’s offering in the budget sector.
The two devices were recently spotted in TENAA which reveals several renders plus some key specifications that they will have.
Let’s start with the Vivo Y75s. According to the renders that have surfaced, it looks really identical to the Vivo V7 (read our review) last year. It has a 5.99-inch FullView screen, an 18:9 aspect ratio, and 1440 x 720 pixel resolution.
Under the hood, there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage that can go up to 256GB via a microSD card.
The device also holds its selfie-centric roots. It has a 16-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash, which overshadowed the 13-megapixel primary camera that it has on the back.
The Vivo Y75s will be powered by a 3225mAh battery and it runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat with Vivo’s own Funtouch OS 3.2.
Next stop, we have the Vivo Y83. The front picture is kinda dark, but we suspect that it will support the display notch — just like the Vivo V9 (here’s our review). The Y83 has a 6.22-inch display, 1520 x 720 resolution, and a 19:9 aspect ratio just like the V9.
The exact chipset used was not mentioned, although it did say that it will have a 2GHz octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage.
Unlike the Y75s, the Vivo Y83 gives more importance in taking real pictures than selfies. Hence, it has a 13-megapixel rear camera and only an 8-megapixel on the front for self-portraits.
Vivo Y83 also runs in a more dated version of Android. What we have here is the 8.1 Oreo version with FunTouch OS 4.0 — Vivo’s latest skin which is tailored to work well with the company’s notch-ed smartphones.
The Vivo Y83 is expected to come in Champagne Gold and Black while the Vivo Y75s will be offered in Blue, Black, Red, and Gold. The official pricing and availability are yet to be announced so stay tuned for that.
