Vivo Y79, a new smartphone from the Chinese handset maker “Vivo” , has been approved by TENAA in China, the Chinese certification website. The company launched V7+ (review) in India last month and it appears that the same handset is being launched in China as the Y79. The images on the website pretty much confirm it’s the same device.
As per the specifications, the phone sports a 5.99-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1440 × 720 pixels. It features thin bezels all around and if it is indeed is the rebranded V7+, will flaunt a screen-to-body ratio of 84.4 percent. The phone measures 155.87 mm × 75.74 mm × 7.7 mm and weighs 160 gms. The device is powered by an SoC with octa-core, 1.8 GHz processor with FunTouch OS on top. It will be mated with a 4 GB of RAM, while internal memory is 64GB which can be expanded by inserting a microSD card. A 3, 150mAh battery is there, which keeps the fun going.
As far as the cameras are concerned, it will have a 16MP rear snapper and a 24MP front selfie shooter. Softwarewise, the phone runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS out of the box. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Available color options include gold. It supports LTE and voLTE.
Now, if you are keeping track the design and most of the Y79 specs are identical to that of the Vivo V7+, which was launched by the company last month. The only major exception being battery – the V7+ packs in a 3, 225mAh battery. The V7+ has already gone on sale in India and can be picked up for Rs 21,990 from Amazon India and Flipkart. The V7+ is also being offered in a matte black hue apart from the champagne gold hue.
