Y75 has somewhat downgraded camera specifications as compared to V7. Buyers have the option to choose from a range of unique colours such as Gold, Matte Black and Rose Gold.
After the launch of Vivo V7 in the Indian markets in November, the company has introduced its new smartphone Y75 in China. The phone is reportedly a toned-down version of V7 and is priced at CNY 1,598 (approximately Rs.15,500). Buyers have the option to choose from a range of unique colours such as Gold, Matte Black and Rose Gold.
Y75 has somewhat downgraded camera specifications as compared to V7. The 16MP rear camera of V7 has been replaced with a 13MP sensor, with a dual-tone LED flash in place. The 24MP front camera of V7 again has a 16MP camera in its place. Sadly, the moonlight selfie flash is also missing in this device.
It certainly retains the facial unlocking technology of V7, which is called FaceWake and the 18:9 aspect ratio of screen continues to dominate its appearance. It measures at 149.3×72.8×7.9 mm.
Other similarities with the V7 include, a display that measures at 5.7 inches and is high definition, with a resolution of 1440×720 pixels. At the core lies the Media Tek Helio P23 octa-core processor, which is paired with a 4GB RAM.
The dual-sim device houses a FunTouch 3.2 OS, based on Android 7.1 Nougat. The inbuilt storage capacity of the phone is at 32GB, that is expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD card. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS, WiFi, Micro-USB and a headphone jack of 3.5mm. The device is powered by a battery of 3000 mAH. V7, which was launched in India at the end of November, was essentially a selfie-focused device with a front camera of 24MP, equipped with a moonlight flash. The product was costlier than Y75, with a price of Rs.18300. Though Y75 is yet to be introduced in Indian markets, it surely will be priced lower than that of V7.
Vivo had also launched a more expensive smartphone in the form of V7+. At a price of Rs. 21,990, it came with fantastic features such as a 5.99-inch full HD display, with 84.4% screen-to-body ratio, and a bezel-less design. The Vivo V7+ is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor,paired with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. The hi-end phone currently, is associated with actor Ranveer Singh, who is currently the face of the product.
Vivo Electronics Corporation, founded in 2009, is a brand based in Guangdong, China. The company is another Chinese smartphone maker to enter Indian markets directly and is known for its low to mid-range Android based smartphones. The brand is known to include hi-fi chips in its smartphones. It is also currently in news after Synaptics said that it had cracked the problem of embedding fingerprint sensors into displays and is mass-producing the tech for one of the top-five smart-phone vendors, which is reportedly Vivo.
