Vivo Y55s 5G Specs
Upfront, the Vivo Y55s 5G sports a fairly large 6.58 inches IPS LCD display that has a FHD+ resolution with a 60 Hz refresh rate. At the top, the screen has a waterdrop notch that houses the 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.
On the rear, there is a dual-camera setup that features a 50MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture and a 2MP macro camera for close-ups of up to 4cm.
The phone comes in a nice polycarbonate body that has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication. It is available in Blue, Pink, or Black color. It has a 3.5 mm headphone jack below the chin so you don’t need a dongle.
Under the hood, the Vivo Y55s 5G draws its power from the MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset coupled with the Mali G57 MC2 GPU. It is paired with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage with no micro SD support. On the software front, the Y55s 5G runs on OriginOS 1.0 based on Android 11.
On the inside, the Vivo Y55s 5G packs a massive 6,000 mAh battery that has support for 18W fast charging via its USB-C port. This battery is the largest ever in a Vivo smartphone which is cool but it is let down by the charging speeds.
As for connectivity, it comes with dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi Direct, and Bluetooth 5.1 (A2DP, LE, aptX HD). For navigation, it supports A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BDS, and QZSS.
