vivo Y15A Specs
Under the hood, the vivo Y15A is powered by the 12nm MediaTek Helio P35 chipset coupled with the PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which is a significant upgrade over the vivo Y15s. The RAM can be virtually extended by 1GB using the internal storage thanks to a new software feature.
This phone now runs on full Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11.1 skin on top.
Upfront, the vivo Y15A sports a 6.51 inches IPS LCD display that has an HD+ resolution and a 60 Hz refresh rate. It has a waterdrop notch that houses the 8MP selfie camera.
On the rear is a dual-camera setup that features a 13MP main camera alongside a 2MP depth camera which helps with portrait mode.
The vivo Y15A comes in a nice plastic body and has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication.
The battery on here is a 5,000 mAh non-removable one. It doesn’t charge fast as it caps out at 10W via its outdated micro USB port. One good thing here is that it had support for 5W reverse wired charging so you can use it top up your smart accessories.
As for connectivity, it comes with support for 4G LTE networks, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, OTG, and FM radio.
