Helio A22-powered Vivo Y90 launches in India
Chinese smartphone maker Vivo is back with a new phone, but this is not something that most European and North American customers would buy as anything else than a backup handset or a first smartphone for the kids. The Vivo Y90 has just been launched in India and has a specific target: buyers on a very tight budget.
Powered by the MediaTek Helio A22 processor, the Vivo Y90 has a 6.22-inch display with a modest resolution of 1,520 x 720 pixels. However, this rather low resolution combined with the generous 4,030 mAh power pack should ensure excellent battery life.
For now, there seems to be a single memory/storage variant that comes with 2 GB of memory and 16 GB of internal storage. The cameras are both single-sensor and as low-end as possible — 5 MP for selfies and 8 MP on the back. Sadly, the operating system is not based on Android Pie and the Vivo Y90 runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.1 on top.
With a price equivalent with less than US$102, the Vivo Y90 is expected to go on sale very soon via Flipkart and Amazon. Given its specs, it is very unlikely to see it going on sale outside Asia.
