Vivo Y83 Specifications, Features and Price

vivo launched a mid-range Y83 smartphone in China yesterday. The device came with rather premium features on board.

vivo Y83 features a 6.22-inch display with a HD+ resolution of 1520 x 720 pixels. It also spots a notched display which allows the company to squeeze more pixels into the design. The display translates to a taller aspect ratio of 19:9 which is same as the one seen on company’s flagship X-series devices.

MediaTek Helio P22 was announced early this week and the Y83 is the first smartphone to get it. The Vivo Y83 is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 which is an octa-core CPU with eight Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and is based on 12nm process. The processor is supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage

The smartphone appears to sport an edge-to-edge display design but it does have a chin at the lower-side. The Vivo Y83 seems to have been built using unibody metal design and the back panel has a mirror finish with glossy coating. The smartphone should be available in aurora white, polar black and red colors.



As far as camera is concerned, on the camera front, the Vivo Y83 come with a 13-megapixel camera at the back with a f/2.2 aperture. There is also an 8-megapixel selfie shooter with AI beautification mode. The Vivo Y83 comes with 3,260mAh battery and runs Funtouch OS 4.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
