Announcement. Another Vivo Y12 for China

This has never happened before - and here it is again. A smartphone called Vivo Y12 has appeared in China. The smartphone is uninteresting, but there is a lot of confusion. Let's unravel.

Vivo Y12 China

1. Vivo already had a smartphone with this name.In 2019. Sold in India and Russia. Naturally, there is nothing similar to our newcomer in it. I rename it in our catalog as Vivo Y12 2019. Smartphones were also announced in 2020-2021
Vivo Y12s,
Vivo Y12i,
Vivo Y12s 2021,
Vivo Y12G,
Vivo Y12A... But, again, this is not the same at all. Nothing in common.

2.Vivo Y12 China is an exact copy of the Vivo Y33t China smartphone (not to be confused with the Vivo Y33T Global), which went on sale late last month. Everything matches, including colors, amount of memory, frequencies.

3. Another very similar device is the Vivo Y17s, which is also sold in our country. But it has a more megapixel main camera.

Let's look at the characteristics.

Old hardware called MediaTek Helio G85 (~270K in AnTuTu10). 6+128 GB memory. Memory card support is available.

A simple screen with a diagonal of 6.56″ (103 cm²) and a resolution of 720×1612 (269 ppi). There is no increased refresh rate.

A standard 5000 mAh battery with symbolically accelerated charging – 15 W.

Cameras. 8 MP front, 13+2 MP rear.

There is a fingerprint scanner and a compass, but no NFC module or gyroscope.

How much Vivo Y12 China will cost is still unknown.
