Entry-level vivo Y01 now available in PHL

SMARTPHONE brand vivo last week launched a new entry-level mobile phone, the vivo Y01, which it said is an “all-rounder” device that is “easy on the budget.”

The vivo Y01 is an addition to the brand’s entry-level Y series and is priced at just P5,299, the company said in a statement last week.

The phone features a 5000mAh battery that supports reverse charging and a larger, high-definition screen with 6.51-inch FullView display with a 1600×720-pixel resolution.

The Y01 will automatically adjust the phone’s brightness based on ambient conditions and also comes with Eye Protection Mode filters.

For a better gaming experience, its Multi-Turbo 3.0 feature “optimizes core scenes to reduce stuttering and lags.”

“When running multiple applications simultaneously, the vivo Y01 will allocate and prioritize CPU and internal storage at 32GB ROM to ensure smooth and steady performance,” vivo said.

Based on vivo’s website, the phone is powered by a Helio P35 processor and comes with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. Its three card slots can accommodate two SIM cards and a microSD card for memory expansion of up to 1TB.

The mobile phone has an 8-megapixel (MP) rear camera and 5MP front camera. vivo said the cameras support time lapse to face beauty modes. They also have a macro or bokeh mode.

The vivo Y01 also comes with FaceWake, a face recognition feature that can unlock the phone when picked up.

“For busy users, the iManager serves as a mobile butler than clean up space or scans issues at night to keep the phone in good shape for even better performance the next day,” vivo said.

The Y01 comes in two color variants: Elegant Black and Sapphire Blue. vivo said the Y01 is “the thinnest and lightest phone in its price range” as it weighs at just 178g.

The phone is now available at vivo stores nationwide. It is also available via vivo’s Shopee store exclusively for two weeks starting April 30. Following this, it will be released on the brand’s Lazada store. — BVR
