Vivo Y69: selfie-focused smartphone 16MP Camera

Vivo company introduced its new smartphone Vivo Y69. As expected, the most highlighted feature of this fresh model, like the previous creations of the brand, is brilliant in Selfie capturing. That being said, in terms of performance, design and originality, the rest of its characteristics are clearly not pleasing. Besides, the price is evidently overstated (nearly $234).

If you try to describe the Y69 in one sentence, you will get something like “one more thin metallic smartphone from China.” The front camera of the novelty is even better than the main one: its resolution is 16 Mp against 13, and also has its own flash of Moonlight Selfie for soft backlighting.

Theoretically, in China, Vivo is one of the leaders among smartphone manufacturers and has its own well-established audience. To a large extent, this achievement was achieved as a result of the embrace of the Middle Kingdom “SelfyMania”. The company was very time orientated and offered several models with an emphasis on self-portraits.

In the face of such a high budget of 234 dollars (14,990 Indian rupees), you can consider the presence of a 5.5-inch IPS screen with a resolution of only HD ready 720 × 1280 and a protective glass Corning Gorilla Glass 3. For this money, FullHD and more shockproof are worth expecting.

In fact, if you do not take into account the cost, still then the Vivo Y69 is not the worst smartphone. It is based on the eight-core MediaTek MT6750, which perfectly copes with everyday tasks and, moreover, is very economical in terms of energy consumption.

The amount of RAM Y69 is 3 Gb, built-in flash memory is 32 Gb. Despite the slim body, the novelty has a slot for microSD memory cards and a 3.5 mm jack for headphones and headsets. The capacity of the battery is 3000 mAh, there is a quick charge of PumpExpress 2.0.

Vivo Y69 is powered by Android 7.0 Nougat along with the firmware Funtouch OS 3.2. Updates will arrive from time to time. However, due to the fact that the main regions for the sale of the smartphone are India and China, the set of languages in the firmware is very limited.

Photographic abilities

Overall, the Vivo Y69 is clearly skewed toward the Selfie and the shooting conventional photos. In general, for this money, you can easily buy a much more powerful “Chinese” model, that’ll be much sharper than last year’s Vernee Apollo Lite in almost one and half times cheaper.The exact parameters of the Samsung S5K3P3ST are not known (the sensor is new and even absent on the manufacturer’s website). However, its “older” S5K2P8 brother has repeatedly used flagship smartphones since Galaxy Note 4.
