On sale. Vivo Y73s - a couple of curious moments

Announced yesterday (or the day before yesterday) in China for the local market, the Vivo Y73s 5G suddenly immediately appeared on sale on AliExpress. With free delivery to Russia - everything we love.

I will repeat what I already said in yesterday's news. The smartphone is not very interesting for us. We don't have 5G. And Vivo Y73s does not have support for the seventh and twentieth LTE bands, which is important for you and me - not for everyone, but for very many. Nevertheless, there are two interesting moments for which, in fact, I decided to write this news.

1. Just to quote the page from AliExpress. "This is the Chinese version, but it supports many languages, Google and OTA update, so we call it the global version." Those. there is a Russian language and there are Google services.

2. Price. Inside China, the smartphone costs ¥ 1998 (₽22,900, $ 298). Surprisingly, the AliExpress price plus or minus is exactly the same - $ 299.98 (₽23600). Usually, as we all know, smartphones intended for China appear on AliExpress with a solid markup.

Well and more. As I expected, there is no NFC module in the smartphone. And, according to AliExpress, there is no memory card either - I was wrong here. It's a pity.

Briefly about the characteristics.

The MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset is a good mid-range, under three hundred thousand AnTuTu points. Fresh - this year. Modern - 7 nm process technology.

6.44 ″ AMOLED screen. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2400 (409 ppi). Classic keyhole at the top. Subscreen fingerprint scanner.

The battery is of average capacity 4100 mAh. Moderately fast charging 18W is supported.

Front camera 16 MP. At the back is a trio of 48 + 8 + 2 MP (main module, wide-angle, depth sensor). We must, of course, wait for the first reviews and examples of pictures. But 99% that there are good cameras of the modern average (what else) level.

Memory 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of permanent.
