Vivo has unveiled the Y77 5G, a follow-up to last year’s Y76 5G and Y76s. Despite being the successor to the Y76 series, the Y77 5G relies on the same MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset as the Y76s. Hence, the Y77 5G has two ARM Cortex-A76 CPU cores at its disposal, plus six Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G57 MP2 GPU. For reference, the Dimensity 810 offers significantly less performance than the newer Dimensity 8100, while also trailing the Dimensity 900 by just over 10%.
