Vivo is a Chinese smartphone company, and it is known for its relatively affordable smartphones. A couple of days after the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro, Vivo unveiled the Vivo Y100i as the latest addition to the Vivo Y series. The Vivo Y-series is known for its affordability and good specs-to-price ratio. The Vivo Y100i comes with a 5G chipset, a huge storage, a decent camera, and a large battery, at a really affordable price. Today, we’ll talk about the Vivo Y100i specs and price, as well as all of its exciting features.
Vivo Y100i Features
First, let’s talk about the performance of the phone. The Vivo Y100i is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 6020 5G chipset which is built on a 7nm fabrication process. It has two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and six efficiency Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. The GPU is the Mali G57 MC2.
The phone comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 2.2 internal storage. Sadly, there is no micro SD slot, I think Vivo saw no need to include one considering how ample the storage is.
The Vivo Y100i comes running on Origin OS 3 based on Android 13.
On the front, you are greeted by a 6.64-inch IPS LCD display that has a resolution of 1080 x 2388 pixels. There is a tiny punch hole cutout at the top center to house the selfie camera. There is no high refresh rate on here which is kind of disappointing considering how other phones in the same price range include it.
Now, let’s talk about the cameras. On the rear, there is a dual setup that features a 50MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 2MP depth camera. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera tucked in the punch-hole cutout.
The Vivo Y100i is backed by a 5,000 mAh battery, and it has support for 44W fast charging. The fingerprint scanner is embedded in the power button for seamless authentication. As stated earlier, there is 5G support, and it also comes with Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 5. There is a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Vivo Y100i Price and Availability
The Vivo Y100i price is set at $225 or €205 (CNY 1,599) for the only 12GB RAM 512GB storage model. The phone will go on sale in China tomorrow. As of now, there is no information on global pricing or availability but it is expected to come anytime soon if we’re going by the Y-series track record.
