Vivo launches a new 6.44-inch display phone while another allegedly waits in the wings
Vivo has launched the Y71t as a new, budget-class 5G phone with design language borrowed from its OEM's flagship lines. It has rear panels with camera humps with X60-esque metallic accents, although there are only 2 lenses found within it in this case: a 64MP main sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide module.
The Vivo Y71t also has a 16MP front-facing camera, found in a waterdrop notch set into its FHD+ display that is AMOLED with 98% of the DCI-P3 gamut, yet lacks a faster refresh rate than 60Hz. However, should this not be the prospective buyer's thing, the latest leak suggests that Vivo is bringing out a second new phone with most of the Y71t's display specs, yet might be higher-end overall.
This new device has only just been certified by the TENAA authority in China, yet is rumored to be the Dimensity 1200-powered X60t Pro. This phone might regress to placement in Vivo's 2020 flagship line because it, like the Y71t, has the camera hump to match. However, it might have 3 rear shooters in this case, although the primary sensor will still be 64MP.
TENAA also notes that this "X60t Pro" will have a 3920mAh battery, which might convert to the 4,000mAh rating of the Y71t when it comes to marketing the phone. It even seems to have the same bluish-black color option also offered in the more budget device.
Then again, it also looks as though it might fall into a more premium category, whereas the Y71t starts at just 1,799 yuan (~US$282) for a base model with 8GB of RAM (although Vivo claims this can be expanded by up to 4GB thanks to OriginOS' latest internal storage-reassigning feature). However, the latter can be ordered in China from November 1, 2021, whereas the alleged new X60 variant lacks an official announcement as yet.
