Vivo, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer giant has launched a new mid-range phone in the form of Vivo Y78t in its home country. This smartphone made an appearance in the Chinese certification databases a while back with a model number V2312BA. But now — the Vivo Y78t has made its appearance in the market, let’s look at its specs, expected price in Nepal, and more!
Vivo Y78t Overview
Design and Display
Given that Vivo hasn’t been very vocal about this new release, there aren’t many official images and renders floating around. However, from what is known, it seems, that the Vivo Y78t is following the footsteps of the Vivo Y78 series, in terms of design. The “t” variant will also have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.
On the front, we have a 6.64-inch LCD panel with FHD+ resolution with 2,388 x 1,080 pixels. Similarly, the screen will feature a refresh rate of 120Hz as well as a touch-sampling rate of 240Hz. The screen is likely to have a centre-aligned hole-punch camera cutout.
We have the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset serving as the brain of the Vivo Y78t. This Qualcomm chip features 8 cores and is built on relatively recent 4nm technology. Furthermore, one of three memory and storage configurations support the SoC viz. 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB, and 12GB + 256GB. The RAM featured here is an LPDDR4x unit while the storage is an UFS 2.2. And finally, the phone comes with OriginOS 3.0 based on Android 13.
Camera and the rest
In terms of optics, we are getting a dual-camera setup on the back. The primary of which is a 50-megapixel sensor. Similarly, the auxiliary unit is a 2-megapixel depth sensor helping out with portrait shots. And up front, we have an 8-megapixel unit helping out with the selfies. We can surely expect Vivo to add its camera flair, which it is so well known for.
Juicing up the entire unit is a massive 6,000 mAh cell that supports a 44W flash charge. Furthermore, the Vivo y78t accepts dual-SIM with VoLTE support. We also get dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth v5.1 support for wireless connectivity. Whereas we are getting a USB-C and the celebrated 3.5mm audio jack for a wired connection.
