vivo launches the Y55s 5G global model
We’re not entirely sure why vivo remains so obsessed with the Y55 moniker, but here we are with another phone with the same model name. It should not be confused with the Y55s of 2017, nor with the Y55 5G of 2021. However, its specifications are quite similar to the latter. This new Y55s 5G, however, is aimed at international markets.
The main difference we can see is that the new vivo Y55s model has a smaller 5000 mAh battery compared to the 6000 mAh of its namesake. Other than that, it still has 18W charging. All of its other specs also look the same. The phone measures 164 x 75.84 x 8.25mm and weighs 187 grams. It can be available in galaxy blue or star black colors.
It features a 6.58-inch FullHD+ (2408 x 1080) LCD display, MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable storage. There is no 8GB RAM option like there is on the 2021 variant. The phone also supports dual SIM 5G, dual band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.1, a USB Type-C port with OTG support, FM radio, NFC and a full range of sensors including gravity, light, proximity, compass, gyroscope and a side fingerprint reader.
The camera department includes a 50MP, f/1.8 main camera and two additional 2MP, f/2.4 snappers on the rear – one for portrait depth information and the other for shots. macro. It’s technically one more camera than the 2021 edition of the phone. On the front – is an 8MP, f/1.8 selfie camera.
The new global vivo Y55s 5G is priced at NTD 7,990 ($263) for the 4GB plus 128GB variant and NTD 8,490 ($280) for the top-end 6GB plus the 128GB one.
