Vivo Y01 with MediaTek Helio P35 chip goes official
Vivo has launched a new budget-range handset, called the Y01, in Africa. The new Y-series phone will be available in several African countries, but the company is yet to reveal its pricing details. As for the key highlights, it features an IPS LCD display, a MediaTek Helio P35 chip, and a 5,000mAh battery. We have no information regarding the device's India debut yet.
- The Y01 is the latest addition to Vivo's portfolio of affordable smartphones. Vivo has been expanding its Y-series, with the Y33s 5G making its debut just last week.
- The handset is primarily aimed at African markets. However, we can expect it to be a crowd-puller in other developing countries as well due to its attractive design and interesting features such as reverse wired charging.
The Vivo Y01 features a waterdrop notch design with a noticeable bottom bezel and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It has a rectangular camera unit on the rear. The handset bears a 6.51-inch HD+ (720x1600 pixels) Halo FullView IPS LCD display with Eye Protection Mode. Dimensions-wise, it measures 8.28mm in thickness and weighs 178g. It is offered in Sapphire Blue and Elegant Black color options.
The Vivo Y01 is equipped with a 13MP/8MP (depending on the region) rear camera. On the front, it has a 5MP (f/2.2) snapper for selfies and video calls.
The Vivo Y01 is fueled by a MediaTek Helio P35 chip, coupled with up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Under the hood, it runs on Android 11 (Go edition)-based Funtouch OS 11.1 and packs a 5,000mAh battery with reverse charging support. For connectivity, the handset offers support for 4G, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and a micro-USB.
