Vivo has launched a new mid-range phone, the Vivo Y12 in Nepal. It is among the first device to flaunts a triple camera setup at this price range. But a lot of things have changed in 2020 and the smartphone market has been competitive more than it has ever been. So can Vivo Y12 compete against the new contenders in the market? Let’s learn more about the phone.
Vivo Y12 Overview
The Vivo Y12 features a large 6.35″ IPS Halo Full View display with a tear-drop notch. The screen here comes with HD+ resolution, just like on the Y17. Even in terms of design and looks, it again highly resembles with the Y17. The screen is large but the limitation is its HD+ resolution. The company has not revealed any kind of Gorilla glass protection.
One of the exciting things about this phone is a triple camera setup for the budget price. The triple camera setup comprises of a 13 MP lens, an 8 MP ultrawide and a 2 MP depth sensor. Of course, even with triple lenses, we can’t expect very high results with a phone of this price range. Also, it’s selfie camera is an 8 MP shooter with AI support.
Performance and Memory
Furthermore, the phone runs on the modest Helio P22 chipset, and there are two memory options available – 3 / 32 GB and 4 / 64 GB. The version that’s launching in Nepal has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage with a dedicated microSD card slot.
Battery and others
And another nice feature about this phone is its 5000 mAh battery, which, with its specs should last more than 2 days easily. Charging is done via micro-USB and there’s no fast charging as well. In addition, there’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. On the software front, it runs on Android 9.0 Pie with VIVO’s custom UI FunTouch OS 9.0. Color Option includes Burgundy Red and Aqua Blue.
