Vivo has just announced a new smartphone in the Y series, with the name Vivo Y71t. The smartphone has been launched in the Chinese market and enters the mid-range market segment. The smartphone comes with a 6.44-inch display in the front, which is an AMOLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate. The front has a waterdrop notch on the top which has the front camera. It has been powered using MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC and also has Mali-G57 GPU under the hood. The smartphone will be running on the Android 11 operating system out of the box and has OriginOS 1.0 skin running over it.
If the smartphone comes to the international market, it will be running FunTouchOS 11 instead. In terms of performance, the smartphone comes with a max of 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. At the back, it has a dual-camera setup, where the user gets a primary 64MP camera lens along with an 8MP ultrawide lens. In the front, the users get a 16MP selfie camera lens. The phone is backed up by a 4,000 mAh battery and has 44w fast charging support. It would support both 4G and 5G networks and has microSD support as well.
The smartphone has been priced at CNY 1,799 for the 8GB/128GB variant and CNY 1,999 for the 8GB/256GB variant. Now looking at the price, it seems that Vivo could have improved the smartphone, even more, looking at the competition it will face in the same price segment. One of the major letdowns would be the 60Hz refresh rate screen, while many companies are providing screens with 120Hz refresh rates. Another thing would be the dual camera setup which might lack the performance for the enthusiast who is more into mobile photography.
