Vivo Y12 Full Specification, review and quick details.

Vivo y12 is the upcoming smartphone ranging from $130-$150. It may be launch in June 2019 and was announced in May 2019. It touts 6.35 inches of tall IPS LCD display unfolding 720 x 1544 pixels resolution and ~268 ppi density for better viewing experience. The smartphone measure around 159.4 x 76.8 x 8.9 mm dimension and weighs nearly 190.5 grams. It will ship in a single colour variant including Aqua Blue, and More colour might roll out later.


As to power, it has Helio P22 chipset, an octa-core processor which clocks at the rate of 2.0 GHz. For gaming stuff, it chips with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Vivo y12 comes bundled with an ample amount of 64 GB/32 GB of internal storage and 256 Gigabytes of External storage. The expandable has a dedicated MicroSD card support. It runs on an Android 9.0 (Pie) and uses a Funtouch 9 Interface.


Regarding the camera, the phone sports a triple 13+8+2 MP rear camera. The 2 MP sensor serves as a depth sensor while 8 Mega-pixel sensor allows the ultrawide shots. Unluckily the phone doesn’t support 4k resolution or any slow-motion. At the front, it boasts 8 MP selfie camera which is far less compared to its other siblings. It features a Panorama, HDR, LED flash, PDAF, Autofocus, self-timer, and various modes at this affordable rate.


When the device runs out of fuel, It fetches the energy from the astonishing 5000 mAh battery. The battery can easily back the standby up to 35 Hours.


You cannot get this affordable handset out anywhere with the latest Android version, the jaw-dropping battery as a buying factor and the dedicated memory card with no removed audio jack.

It’s not so different in terms of specs than the elder brother Vivo y15 2019. All the attributes are the same for both the phone except the selfie camera. The elder version sports a better selfie camera just to justify the figures.

The only pitfall which we see is its hardware. It has an Helio P22 chipset, which doesn’t stand a chance against any smartphone of the same price range coming with a Snapdragon chipset. The performance is undoubtedly the reason to not buy the smartphone.
