A couple of new affordable Android phones in Y series launched in India by Vivo. Earlier today, the Chinese manufacturer has officially launched both the Vivo Y100 and Vivo Y56 handsets for the Indian markets. Both are 5G capable phones, and arrive with decent hardware specs under the hood.
The Vivo Y100 is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, two 2.4GHz Cortex-A78 cores, six 2GHz Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G610 MC6 GPU. The other major advantage of the Y100 is the 6.38” Full HD+ AMOLED display. It has 1,080 x 2,400px resolution, 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support.
It runs Android 13-based Funtouch 13 UI out of the box. Furthermore, it packs a 4,500 mAh battery charged through a USB-C port at 44W charging speeds. The Y100 features an in-display fingerprint reader and comes with three cameras – a 16MP selfie shooter inside the notch, with the 64MP primary camera with OIS on the rear joined by a couple of 2MP shooters for taking care of the depth and macro capabilities.
The Vivo Y56, on the other hand is an entry-level range smartphone, powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC (supports 5G bands in India) and sports a 6.58″ 90Hz Full HD+ IPS LCD with 60Hz refresh rate.
