Vivo has presented the Vivo Y55s in China, a smartphone with a Dimensity 700 SoC and a 6.58-inch display. The Y55s also has the largest battery capacity of any Vivo smartphone released so far.

Vivo has unveiled another new smartphone, having launched the Y71t in October. Now, it is the turn of the Y55s, not to be confused with a smartphone of the same name that Vivo announced in 2017. Seemingly, the two are unrelated.

The Y55s is a mid-range smartphone with a 6.58-inch IPS display. The 1080p panel also has a waterdrop notch for an 8 MP front-facing camera and an 84.5% screen-to-body ratio. Additionally, a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC powers the Y55s, accompanied by 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

Moreover, the Y55s has a 50 MP primary camera that Vivo has complemented with a 2 MP macro sensor. Allegedly, the latter can capture images from up to 4 cm away, although its resolution suggests that the 50 MP will do most of the Y55s' heavy lifting.

The Y55s has a 6,000 mAh battery too, the largest capacity of any smartphone that Vivo has brought to market. For reference, the Y55s can recharge its battery at up to 18 W using its USB Type-C port.

Vivo states that the Y55s will be available in China for CNY 1,699 (~US$267). The device will launch in three colours, but a global launch remains unconfirmed.
