Vivo launches the Y83, the first Helio P22-powered smartphone
MediaTek launched its new SoC, the Helio P22, last week. It's taken only a few days for it to make its way into consumer hands, though, in the guise of the Vivo Y83.
If the distinctly uninteresting name of the device didn't key you in, the Y83 is an unassuming sub-midrange phone that will likely be forgotten soon. The device sports a 6.22-inch display with a novel 720x1520 resolution. Of course, resolutions like that are usually indicators of the presence of a notch, and the Y83 is no different.
The Y83 features 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a single 13 MP rear sensor with f/2.2 aperture, an 8 MP selfie camera also with f/2.2 aperture, and a 3260 mAh battery. It runs on Vivo's Android 8.1-based skin, Funtouch 4.0, and is available in Black, White, and Red.
Considering the fact that the Y83 comes with an MSRP that translates into about US$235, it's a tad hard to figure out what makes it worth your money. The only point of interest is the fact that it's the first device to feature a Helio P22.
Rather surprisingly, the Helio P22 CPU is paired with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU on the Y83.
