Vivo has come up once again with another mid-range device having great design, decent features and an adequate price tag. This is Vivo Y83 that gets unveiled with premium and trendy features for cheap. The exterior of the device gets an eye-catching top notch and trimmed bezels.

Vivo Y83 – Features

Vivo Y83 brings the same design we’ve come across a few days earlier with the Vivo Z1. The bottom bezel is relatively thick while the top notch houses various sensors including the selfie shooter. The device is equipped with fairly larger IPS LCD display measuring 6.22-inch in size while having an odd resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9.

Vivo Y83 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo under Vivo’s FunTouch 4.0 OS and houses an undisclosed 2.0 GHz octa-core SoC under the hood to power up the newly launched device. As far as memory aspect of the device is concerned, Vivo Y83 brings a combo of 4GB RAM and 64GB native storage that can also be expanded up to 256GB through microSD card slot.

The camera department of Vivo Y83 consists of a single 13MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture on the top-left corner at the rear. The front camera can shoot up to 8 MP photos and has an aperture of f/2.2 as well. It comes with additional perks such as beautification and bokeh effects.

The device is fuelled by a 3,260 mAh battery unit with company’s own battery saving modules. However, it is not yet disclosed whether it comes with any fast charging technology.


Vivo Y83 – Pricing & Availability

Vivo Y83 is offered for sale in China in three color options to choose from Black, Aurora White and Red. Main highlight and the key selling point for Vivo Y83 is considered to be the price tag offered that is CNY 1489 (~$233, PKR 27,000).

Although there is no official words on the international exposure of the device but we’ll keep an eye and inform you as and when Y83 lands outside China.
