As early as May, VIVO announced the VIVO Y70s. It seems there is nothing super-interesting with this handset. But it was the first to carry the Samsung Exynos 880 processor. Today, we learned the company is preparing to release a new phone with similar specifications, called VIVO Y70.
The spec sheet of the phone has been published on Weibo recently. According to a Weibo user, the VIVO Y70 will be equipped with a 2400 x 1080 resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate LCD screen provided by JDI. However, there is currently no mention of screen size.
This phone will also sport the Exynos 880 chip. There are two memory options of 6GB and 8GB, while the storage space is 128GB.
For the camera part, the VIVO Y70 will have a 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. This is the same camera configuration as the Y70s. But VIVO provides a different selfie camera for the Y70 – the 8MP sensor of the OV8856.
The VIVOY70 will also come with a 4500mAh battery and support 18W fast charging through the USB Type-C port. Unlike the VIVO Y70s with stereo speakers, according to the specification table, the VIVO Y70 has only one speaker.
The spec sheet also revealed the price of the phone. The 6GB RAM + 128GB version costs 1798 yuan ($254), while the 8GB RAM + 128GB version costs 1998 yuan ($283). At the moment, we have no official or rumoured launch date for this handset, but it is expected to be launched this month.
