So far, the year 2020 has been a perfect one for Vivo. The smartphone maker has fully exploited the year as it has released a variety of handsets ranging from entry-level devices to high-end smartphones. And the firm is not relenting.
Yet again, Vivo has taken the cover off a new mid-range handset. The phone debuted as Vivo Y12s.
Specifications of the Vivo Y12s
The all-new Vivo Y12s comes with a relatively big 6.51-inch waterdrop notch display. The screen has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and produces an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels.
Approximately, the Vivo Y12s weighs 191 grams, and it has a dimension of 164.41 x 76.32 x 7.41mm.
In its on-screen notch, the Vivo Y12s houses an 8-megapixel selfie shooter.
Meanwhile, on the rear panel, the handset features a vertically aligned dual-camera unit. The system includes a primary 13-megapixel snapper with f / 1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel shooter with an f / 2.4 aperture.
To the internals, the modest Helio P35 chipset drives the Vivo Y12s. Alongside the processor is 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage space.
Also, the phone comes with a dedicated MicroSD card slot that allows the user to expand storage.
Further, the new Vivo Y12s comes loaded with the FunTouchOS 11 based on Android 10 OS, and it relies on a 5,000mAh battery for backup. Unfortunately, the phone only supports 10W of charging.
The handset supports dual SIM, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, a MicroUSB port, a side-facing fingerprint scanner, and a 3.5mm audio port.
Besides the fingerprint scanner, the Vivo Y12s also supports face unlock.
The Vivo Y12s arrived in two colour choices – glacier blue and phantom black – and it carries a price tag of HK$ 1,098 ($142). It is now available in some Asian markets like Vietnam and Hongkong.
