It’s no secret that Vivo is about to launch the V20 Pro in India, and now a new report has emerged that the company may also be looking to bring the entry-level Vivo Y1s to the country. The phone was first made official in Cambodia in August and could finally arrive in India in December.
This information comes courtesy of whistleblower Mukul Sharma, who claims the phone will break coverage in the country in December. According to the tipster, the phone will be available with a price tag of around Rs 8,000 and will be available for purchase starting in December. He also stated that Vivo will partner with Jio to sell the Vivo Y1s at a special discount. Sharing the details of the offer, he revealed that Jio plans to offer shopping perks and OTT perks along with what appears to be an offer for a free screen replacement program.
Vivo Y1s: specifications
The Vivo Y1s has launched in global markets before, so there is some understanding of the specs it will offer. The phone as such could arrive in India with a 6.22-inch Halo Full View display capable of producing an HD + resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels. It will come with the NEG T2X-1 screen protector and can measure 155.11 x 75.09 x 8.28mm and weighs 161 grams.
The phone display could sport a teardrop notch, hiding a 5 megapixel selfie camera inside. The back of the phone may contain a single 13 megapixel camera with LED flash. The phone should work with the FunTouch OS 10.5 based Android 10 operating system.
Under the hood, there should be a 2.3GHz MediaTek Helio P35 chipset running the show here for the Y1s. The phone could be powered by a 4,030mAh battery that supports reverse charging. Aside from that, the new Vivo phone could get 2GB of LPPDR4x RAM and 32GB of native memory. The phone, however, will also support MicroSD card support for additional storage. Aside from that, if Vivo follows the global model design then this device could be announced in Olive Black and Aurora Blue colors in India.
