Vivo has just launched a new mid-range smartphone in the Philippines. Meet the Vivo Y55. Based on the press images for this device, I think it is going to help Vivo get more attention from the consumers who has not heard of this new smartphone maker yet. The Vivo Y55 sports premium looking design, I don't know about you but at first look this phone reminds me of the Oppo F1s which I just unboxed and really liked its overall design and built. That's one of the reasons I already liked this Y55 the first time I saw it. Hopefully I will be able to have my hands on this device to personally know it and tell you more.
For now, let's just talk what the Vivo Y55 is offering on paper. Upfront, the device offers a not-so-big 5.2-inch screen with HD resolution and on its edge a 2.5D curved glass which is already a common front-panel glass feature on many of the newest smartphones today.
On the inside, the Vivo Y55 is powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 processor, Adreno 505 GPU and 2GB RAM. Storage wise users will get a standard 16GB capacity which can still be expanded via microSD card up to 128GB. And then for taking photos, there are 8MP on the back with flash and 5MP on the front. Good news is this is running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Vivo's own Funtouch OS 2.6 UI on top. The other most sought-after features like Dual-SIM, LTE and USB OTG are also available with this Vivo Y55.
