Announcement: Vivo U1 - state employee in Chinese

The Chinese market officially presents the smartphone of the new line of the Vivo company - the Vivo U1 model.

Apparently, this device opens a numberdevices of budgetary nature. The state employee, however, in the style of Vivo: there is a mandatory drop-shaped cut-out on the big screen, a good battery, a solid amount of memory even in the younger version. Recognizable design, gradient colors. Everything, in general, as expected. And inexpensive: the younger version with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM is priced at 799 yuan ($ 82 / $ 118). Who will need a bigger drive (64 GB) - will pay 999 yuan (9,780 / $ 147), those who want the best will part with 1199 yuan (11,130 / $ 177) and get the version 4 GB + 64 GB

The device is built on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439. It’s probably not fair to find fault with the insufficient power of the chipset - after all, the smartphone is frankly low. The fact that he is so lucky with the memory does not oblige the manufacturer to install the top processor.

The same can be said about the screen 6.2 ″ with a resolution of 720x1520 pixels. Will do.

The cameras are dual main, combining a 13 megapixel module with an additional 2 megapixel and 8 megapixel front camera. Cameras are driven by artificial intelligence.

The battery looks good - 4030 mAh.

There is a fingerprint scanner. Excesses like NFC, of ​​course, no.

Colors, as usual, gradient. Three options.
