Vivo Y78+ 5G

The Chinese manufacturer has quietly unveiled the Vivo Y78+ 5G in China, which is aimed at budget-conscious buyers. Surprisingly, the smartphone was released without much publicity. Reports have confirmed that this is the first Y-series Vivo device to feature a curved-edge display, making it a noteworthy addition to the lineup. It seems that Vivo’s current priority is the launch of the Vivo X90 series in India, with the Y78 series potentially following suit with less fanfare.

In addition to its curved-edge display, the Vivo Y78+ 5G boasts a 50MP dual-camera setup with optical image stabilization, as well as a Snapdragon 6-series processor and 44W fast charging support. Check out the device’s full specifications, features, and pricing details below.
