Vivo has already launched the vivo Y36 4G and 5G. These two devices broke covers back in May of this year. Now, the lineup has seen a brand-new new member, the vivo Y36i.

vivo Y36i 5G launched

The phone is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 6020 processor. This chipset, which has been previously seen in models like Honor Play 50 Plus and vivo Y35+, is produced using 7nm manufacturing technology and utilizes the Mali-G57 MC2 graphics processing unit. The mentioned processor is accompanied by 4 GB of physical RAM and 4 GB of virtual RAM. The storage capacity is stated to be 128 GB.

Looking at the screen of the vivo Y36, we encounter a 6.56-inch panel. This IPS display has a resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels, a 90Hz screen refresh rate, and a 180Hz touch sampling rate. The maximum brightness it reaches is 840 nits. The camera is one of the standout features of this budget-friendly model.

Looking at the front, we see a 5-megapixel camera positioned in a water drop shaped notch. On the back, there is a dual arrangement consisting of a 13-megapixel main camera and an Anti-Stroboscopic Sensor. This sensor is designed to detect the frequency of the light source, preventing interference such as “water ripple” effects when capturing images of screens or water surfaces.

Affordable phones are often criticized due to their weak processors. However, this provides them a significant advantage in terms of battery performance, and the vivo Y36i is no exception.

The device is equipped with a 5000 mAh battery with 15W charging support. The company describes this as “fast charging,” but even 30W is no longer considered fast in today’s standards.
