Announcement. Vivo Y55s 5G Global - some more confusion

Vivo continues to exercise in the careful obfuscation of everything and everything.

So.In Hong Kong (which is a special piece of China) and Taiwan (which is the Republic of China and with which everything is complicated) a smartphone called Vivo Y55s 5G was announced, which I will call on our website ... Vivo Y55s 5G Global? Well, what else would you call it? Vivo Y55s 5G Near China?

Well, yes. traditional problem.We already have one smartphone called Vivo Y55s 5G. I urgently rename it to Vivo Y55s 5G China, because only there it is sold, and for more than a year. (In fact, there is also a third Vivo Y55s, but it is without 5G, was born in 2017 and is no longer relevant at all).

Further.Our brand new Vivo Y55s 5G Global, as far as I can tell, is an exact copy of the Vivo Y55 5G smartphone announced exactly a year ago (that one also first appeared in Taiwan, but later, it seems, dispersed to most of the rest of the globe - although not a single English-language review about him in my network did not come across). The only thing is that Vivo Y55s 5G Global has a 6+128 GB version, while Vivo Y55 5G has only 4+128 GB.

Vivo has other similar devices, but still not quite identical, so I better pause and eat Twix.

And now two words about the characteristics. Along the way, I’ll tell you about the differences between Vivo Y55s 5G Global and Vivo Y55s 5G China – they are very similar…

The chipset is the good old MediaTek Dimensity 700. We are waiting for 300-350 thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory. 4 or 6 GB RAM, 128 GB permanent (plus support for memory cards). The “Chinese” has 6 or 8 GB of RAM and the same 128 GB of permanent memory. And, apparently, there is no support for memory cards.

The screens are identical. Diagonal 6.58 ″ (104 cm²), resolution 1080 × 2408 (401 ppi), no increased refresh rate.

The battery is average, 5000 mAh (and 6000 mAh for the “Chinese”). The charging speed is the same - 18 watts.

The set of cameras is simple. 8 MP front, 50+2+2 MP rear. The “Chinese” has almost everything the same, only there is no depth sensor.

Other. Everything is identical here. Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi, side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

I don't see prices for Vivo Y55s 5G Global yet. But, in theory, it should not be expensive.
