Vivo Y19 Launched in Nepal: Falling behind the competitors

Vivo Y19 price in nepal

Vivo’s Y-series usually falls behind its competitors in the south Asian market. Vivo’s latest smartphone, the Vivo Y19 builds on its predecessor Y17 by offering a big battery and FullHD display. Let’s check out the complete specs, price, and availability of Vivo Y19 in Nepal.

Vivo Y19 Overview

Design & Display

Talking about the design, it is nothing to go bonkers over. The Vivo Y19 comes on a “3D Micro Arc Curvature Design” which is just verbose for a curved build. You get Vivo’s signature gradient reflective design on the back. The phone comes in two color schemes: Magnetic Black, and Spring White. Similarly, there’s a traditional fingerprint scanner next to the cameras.

The predecessor Y17 came with an underwhelming HD+ resolution for a decently big display and we complained about it dearly. Well, Vivo has upped the display game here, as the Y19 packs a taller 6.53-inch “Halo FullView” LCD panel with Full-HD+ (2340 x 1080) resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and 395ppi. Similarly, the company has managed to minimize the bezels. As a result, the phone achieves an impressive 90.3% screen-to-body ratio.

Camera

The cameras on the Vivo Y19 are nothing to write home about either. It features an almost identical triple rear-camera setup like the older Y17. The only upgrade is the bigger 16MP main shooter, while you get the same old 8MP super wide-angle camera. However, Vivo has swapped the depth sensor with a 2MP macro sensor on the Y19. You’d think a traditional Vivo customer would care more about portrait shots than close-ups, but hey, the company must have had its reasons.

AI makeup camera

Making our way to the front, we can find the 16MP selfie camera under a tiny waterdrop notch on top. Now, Vivo phones have always packed tons of features regarding photography and the Y19 is no exception. “AI Face Beauty” enhances and smoothens your selfies, while “AI Makeup” in the photo album lets you change the makeup post taking the shot. “Pose Master” is another interesting feature where the camera app will guide you through setting the pose for your pictures.

Performance & Memory

Now, Vivo phones have never been equipped with decent chipsets making them an undesirable choice for people looking for a fast phone. The Y19 houses the new octa-core MediaTek Helio P65 chipset (12nm). It features dual-core 2.0GHz Cortex-A75 and hexa-core 1.7GHz Cortex-A55 CPU, which is not a massive boost compared to the Helio P35 in the Y17. GPU sees a commendable improvement with the Mali-G52 MC2 clocked at 820 MHz.

processor specs

Vivo Y19 comes in a single memory configuration with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. You’re pretty much stuck on the memory front since the storage isn’t expandable via a microSD card.

Battery

We’ve seen a lot of budget and mid-range phones from Vivo with a sizeable battery. Thankfully, the Vivo Y19 packs a large 5000 mAh cell as well. It supports 18W “Dual Engine Fast Charge” via MicroUSB 2.0 out of the box. Yep, still with the MicroUSB crap! Man, I would cuss so hard if I cared but I don’t so I won’t. Moving on, you can transfer the juice of the Y19 to other phones as well as it supports 5W reverse charging via an OTG cable.

Miscellaneous

Vivo has incorporated “Ultra Game Mode“, which prevents any disturbances from popping-up in your gaming sessions. Additionally, you can change your voice when chatting with your teammates when playing games with the “Voice Changer” feature. You get the option to change your voice to an Artificial Intelligence, a Commander, a War Correspondent, a Cowboy, or a Child. Which is just… why? Talking about UI, the Y19 runs on Vivo’s homegrown Funtouch OS 9.2 on top of Android 9 (Pie).
