Vivo has been shuffling the release of its smartphones between entry-level, mid-range, and high-end devices since 2020 began. The strategy aligns with Vivo’s plan to meet the needs of every category of customer, especially in terms of cost.

Two days ago, in China, the tech firm took the cover off a budget-friendly device called the Vivo Y73s 5G. Yes, a 5G-ready budget smartphone.

However, before the smartphone launched, it surfaced last month on TEENA’s database. The new device is the first smartphone from Vivo to feature the Dimensity 720 chipset.

The Vivo Y73s 5G arrives with a 6.44-inch AMOLED display, which has a waterdrop notch design.

The screen supports a 20:9 aspect ratio, HDR10, and a 103% NTSC colour gamut. It also offers the user a 90.1% screen-to-body ratio, and it supports a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.

On the inside, the Dimensity 720 chipset powers the Vivo Y73s 5G smartphone. It features 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. However, the phone lacks support for storage expansion.

For software, the Vivo Y73s 5G boots to the FunTouchOS 10, based on Android 10 OS.

On the front side, the phone sports a 16-megapixel selfie shooter in the on-screen notch.

A triple camera system which includes a 48-megapixel primary camera, a super-wide 8-megapixel lens, and a 2-megapixel portrait shooter is present on the back panel of the handset.

The lenses on the Vivo Y73s 5G supports features such as macro shots, night mode, 10x digital zoom, 4K video recording, and EIS.

For backup, the phone has an in-built 4,100mAh battery that supports 18W dual-engine fast charging tech.

The phone comes with connectivity features like dual SIM slot, 5G, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Other features of the device include a USB-C port and an under-display fingerprint reader.

As of now, it is unclear whether the Vivo Y73s will debut in other markets except from China. It costs 1,998 Yuan (~$298) in China, and it is available in colour options such as silver moon and mirror black.
