Vivo has expanded its range of Y series smartphones by launching the Vivo Y3 Standard Edition in its home market of China. The handset has arrived as an affordable variant of the Vivo Y3, which was launched in May this year. The Vivo Y3 Standard Edition features a dual primary camera setup at the rear, unlike the Vivo Y3 that sports a triple camera system on the back. While the latter utilises a MediaTek chipset, the new model features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor. The pocket-friendly offering comes with a glass back, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a waterdrop notch above the screen.
Vivo Y3 Standard Edition specifications and features
The Vivo Y3 Standard Edition has a 6.35-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution, and it boots Android 9 Pie-based Funtouch OS 9.1 out of the box. The phone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor, which is accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage that can be further increased by inserting a microSD card. The handset features a gradient finish at the rear that makes it look quite appealing and premium. The device also has the Vivo Jovi AI assistant, which can be triggered by pressing the power button.
Talking about the camera specs, the Vivo Y3 Standard Edition offers a 13-megapixel primary camera setup at the rear, which is accompanied by a 2-megapixel secondary shooter. For selfies and video-calling purposes, the smartphone has an 8-megapixel snapper with f/1.8 aperture on the front. The connectivity features are standard including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, micro-USB port, a 3.5mm headphone socket, and GPS. A 5,000mAh battery with 10W charging support complete the list of the specifications.
Vivo Y3 Standard Edition price
The Vivo Y3 Standard Edition has been priced at RMB 999 (~Rs 10,000). The smartphone is being offered in two colour variants – Ink Blue and Jake Red. There’s no word when the phone will be launched in markets outside China at the moment.
