Sometime last week, the Vivo Y52s appeared on a China Telecom listing. The listing didn’t contain information about the phone’s launch, but surprisingly, the smartphone rolled out in China yesterday.
The Vivo Y52s arrived as the second smartphone from the brand to feature the Dimensity 720 chipset after the Vivo Y73s that came in October.
The major highlights of the new Vivo handset include a large display, top-notch camera system, and a big battery.
Specifications and Features of the Vivo Y52s
The all-new Vivo Y52s comes with a 6.58-inch IPS LCD screen that has a waterdrop notch design. The display supports an aspect ratio of 20.5:9 and a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2408 pixels.
Further, the screen also supports a refresh rate of 90Hz, HDR10, DCI-P3 colour gamut, and a 180Hz touch sampling rate.
As stated earlier, the Dimensity 720 SoC powers the all-new Vivo Y52s smartphone. The processor comes with 6GB / 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
It also supports storage expansion via a dedicated microSD card slot.
For the lenses, the Vivo Y52s houses an 8-megapixel front-facing camera in its on-screen notch. On the backside, the handset has a dual-camera system that consists of a 48-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel depths sensor.
Both the selfie and rear sensors support night scene mode. The rear sensors further carry support for EIS, slow-motion video recording in Full HD, and recording of 4K videos at 30fps.
The handset will arrive pre-installed with the FunTouch OS 10.5 based on the Android 10 OS. It houses a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging tech, and it features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The Vivo Y52s supports the usual connectivity features and face unlock for security.
