Vivo Y75 Now Official with ‘Face Wake’ Technology
Chinese manufacturer Vivo has expanded its portfolio of 18:9 display smartphones by launching a new device in China. Dubbed the Vivo Y75, the device is quite similar to the Vivo V7 launched last month. However, the difference between the devices comes in the inner specs and the optical department.
The Y75 Vivo features a 5.7 inch 18:9 IPS LCD 2.5D curved glass display. The screen is an 18:9 Full View display covering a screen-to-body ratio of 83.6% and comes with a resolution of HD + (1440 × 720 pixels) and a screen density of 282 ppi.
The display also contains a blue-light filter that reduces the intensity of blue light emitted by the LCD screen. This technology, usually found in Philips smartphones, aims to protect the user’s eyes.The Vivo Y75 contains a metallic case design measuring 149.3 × 72.8 × 7.9 mm and weighs 139 g. There is a square-shaped fingerprint on the rear of the device. The smartphone is powered by a 64-bit Octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 chipset and a Mali G71 MP2 video card (770MHz frequency). The device offers 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory,
which is expandable to 256 GB by micro SD card. The device has three slots: two for SIM and one for micro SD.The camera specs of this device are somewhat weaker than those in the Vivo V7. It offers a 13 MP camera sensor on the rear and 16 MP on the front. The front camera has an LED flash and the ‘Face Wake’ function. The Vivo V7 has a higher 16 MP and 24 MP camera but no ‘Face Wake’ technology.
The device will be running the Funtouch OS 3.2 operating system based on Android 7.1 Nougat and will be backed by a Non-removable 3000 mAh battery with fast charge support. Connectivity includes 4G LTE, Dual SIM Dual Standby, WiFi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS + GLONASS, OTG. The sensor onboard includes a compass, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor. Vivo chose to leave USB Type-C and went on with a MicroUSB 2.0 port.
The Vivo Y75 may lack specific specs, but it is well designed and has good specs. As for the pricing, the device comes with a price tag of 1598 yuan ( Rs 15,500 approx), which will place it against the likes of Honor 7X, Moto G5s Plus, and the Xiaomi Mi A1, two of them having dual cameras on the rear. The smartphone is available in China on Vivo’s official website in matte black, golden, and Rose Gold color variants.
