Announcement. Vivo Y12s 2021 - a very humble smartphone

In Vietnam, without much noise and dust appeared inselling an inexpensive smartphone Vivo Y12s 2021. “Recommended retail price” has not been announced, but the best offer that I see in Vietnamese stores now is 2,990,000 dong, which is approximately equal to ₽9600 ($ 129).

The newbie is very similar to the one announced globally inthe end of last year, the Vivo Y12s smartphone, only the chipset is different. However, about the same power. Plus, the original Vivo Y12s has variants with a lot of storage.

Another almost twin is the "Indian" Vivo Y20a - it has one more auxiliary camera (there is a macro).

Chipset - 2018 Qualcomm Snapdragon 439.On average, a little less than a hundred thousand points in the eighth AnTuTu, which is catastrophically small by modern standards. An interesting fact - Vivo is the only manufacturer I know that will announce smartphones based on this chip in 2021.

Little memory. 3 GB of operational, 32 GB of constant. However, it cannot be ruled out that versions with a different amount of memory may appear. Support for memory cards, of course, is.

The screen is typical for inexpensive devices. IPS matrix with teardrop notch. Diagonal 6.51 ″. The resolution is low - 720 × 1600 (270 ppi).

The battery is in perfect order. The capacity is good, 5000 mAh. Charging, of course, is not very fast - 10 watts.

Cameras are unlikely to please much. The front one has a resolution of 8 MP. The rear camera is dual, 13 MP main plus a depth sensor.

Nice. There is reverse charging. Wi-Fi is dual band.

Unpleasant. Ancient Micro-USB. No gyroscope.
