While Huawei phone has been restricted by United States regulatory moves, the sales of Huawei phones have gone down drastically. This definitely has become an opportunity for other brands. There has been real spree in the launches. We can even see a few brands, coming up with two launches a year. Well, this would continue for some time and is not going to end soon. For consumers, it is good news as they are going to get a lot of options from multiple launches. Vivo is not behind in this launch spree, it already had multiple launches this year, yet it is ready with the next one. We have confirmed that Vivo Y12 is ready to be launched in India. In this article, we will discuss the key features as well as the final specifications of this phone.
The Y series of Vivo has been quite popular in India, and this might have prompted Vivo to launch the next one in the market. Before we discuss anything about this phone, let us tell you first, what is so special about this phone. The special feature of this phone is its battery. Yes, it has got a mammoth battery. It has a 5000mAh battery. This is not all, the phone support reverse charging as well. Well, we have heard about the reverse charging features in some of the premium flagships but this is the first time we will see this feature in an affordable series. So, what does that mean for you, it means that you can use this phone as power banks as well, for charging other phones.
Now, let’s look at some of the basic features as well. Now make no mistake, this is an entry-level phone and not a premium phone. However, even though it’s a budget phone, this definitely has some premium features. The phone is equipped with a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset. Its CPU has a speed of 2.0GHz. The phone will be launched in two different versions. One version will have 4GB internal memory and 32 GB storage. It will be priced at Rs. 11,999. While there is another version, that will have 3GB memory and 64GB storage. This version will be priced at Rs.12,999. The price tag is quite attractive, and it can give serious competition to some of the budget models of Mi. So, we can expect that this phone is going to attract budget buyers. The RAM specification is good at this price range, if not excellent. To be honest, for a budget phone this is too good. We guess Mi is the only other brand which can provide 6GB RAM in this price. However, a major disappointment might be not having a Snapdragon processor, instead, a MediaTek processor has been included. We are not telling that Media Tek is bad, but again compared to Snapdragon its performance is average. Although, in day to day usage you might not feel this at all. You might get a pinch of it, only when you are running a resource hungry application or playing a high-end game.
Vivo Y12 has of 6.35-inch Halo Full View display. It has got an HD+ resolution. The display seems to be absolutely tempting. Again, at this price, this seems to be a real boon. So, you can enjoy your high definition web series and online movies at the best. The aspect ratio of the phone is 19.3:9, with a screen-to-body ratio of 89 percent exactly. The resolution is going to be 720 X 1544 pixels. Overall, the specifications mentioned for the display is absolutely good. It needs to be made clear that this is not a bezel-less display, but it would not be fair to expect that in this price point. The phone will be launched in two colors, that is aqua blue and burgundy red.
Now let’s discuss the camera, we know you have been waiting for this. The phone comes with a triple camera setup at the rear. Again, at this affordable price, this could be a real differentiator. We know that Redmi 7 has been launched at the same price tag with 48 MP camera, but it has got a dual camera setup. A triple camera setup definitely gives a much more clarity even with a less megapixel. The new Vivo Y12 comes with 13-megapixel f/2.2 main camera, an 8-megapixel secondary sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. This definitely guarantees an image of optimum quality and define composure. The front camera has got an 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The rear camera comes with the AI selfie shooter and AI Face Beauty. So, gear up for some expressive selfies. The rear camera comes with a flash.
Vivo Y12 will have Android Pie or Android 9, and Funtouch OS 9 will be installed on top of that. It has got a fingerprint sensor as well, located at the rear of the phone. Apart from this, it has got face unlock options as well. The phone has got two sim slots, where each of them can accommodate one 4G SIM. Apart from that, it has got A-GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-fi. As per the initial specification, there is no support for NFC.
So, why should you buy this phone?
- For its massive battery
- Reverse Charging (Very Rare to find in a phone at this range)
- Good Camera
- Decent storage option
