Vivo has quietly launched another entry level device with large bezelless screen, a decent camera and the trendy design for low-budget segment. The smartphone, dubbed as Vivo Y71, offers a display having 18:9 aspect ratio, 3GB RAM, a 13MP shooter and much more with an attractive price tag.
Vivo Y71 – Features
Vivo has introduced a large 5.99-inch bezelless display that too with 18:9 aspect ratio as the selling point for Vivo Y71. The IPS LCD panel has an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels along with the pixel density of almost 269 ppi.
The device is strengthened with an aluminium body having curved edges. The rear of the device is metal finished whereas the front brings a nice looking glass finish. However, Vivo has surprisingly refuted the trendy fingerprint sensor.
As far as the internals are concerned, Vivo Y71 is a dual SIM sported device that runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Vivo’s proprietary layer of Funtouch OS on top. An entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset is embedded to power up the device that is clocked at 1.8GHz working in tandem with Adreno 506 GPU.
The device is shipped with two storage options of 16GB and 32GB with an option to expand up to 256GB by using the dedicated microSD card slot. However there is the only option of 3 GB RAM to fulfil all the tasks in a smoother way.
The camera department of Vivo Y71 comprises of a single primary lens of 13MP resolution sported with autofocus and an LED flash. The front shooter is limited to 5MP for making video calls and capturing an average rated selfie shots.
The Vivo Y71 is equipped with enormous 3,360 mAh battery unit that seems a decent enough to provide good battery timing on a low-power Snapdragon 450 chipset and a moderate HD+ display. No word on fast charging and the battery is chargeable via microUSB 2.0.
