As expected from some detailed leaks, Vivo's latest smartphone release is the Y3. It may be a compelling option for those with the equivalent of around US$220 to spend on a new phone, as it has a triple camera. However, one shouldn't look for a OnePlus 7 Pro-esque set-up for this price: the camera in question is indeed a 13+8+2MP shooter. These are intended to handle standard, wide-angle and depth-sensing photography respectively.

The rest of the new Y3's specs are in line with indications from its TENAA certification. They include a 4GB/128GB RAM/storage configuration, a 720p display and a MediaTek Helio P35 octa-core SoC. The phone also supports microSD cards of up to 128GB in size.

The Vivo Y3's description also mention a 5000mAh battery; however, according to its certification, the capacity of this battery is more likely to be around 4880 in real life. Nevertheless, this is still impressive for a device in this tier. It is available now on, where customers can pick up a Y3 in either Ink Blue, Shadow Blue or the also-anticipated Peach Powder color for 1498 yuan (or ~US$217).

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
