The problem faced by most smartphone users is how long their smartphones can last. Putting this into consideration, Vivo has released the Vivo Y12, an affordable smartphone with 5,000mAh battery that will take you for days non-stop.

Its battery life is attractive, so also is its performance. You have the MediaTek Helio P22 teaming up with either a 3GB RAM or 4GB RAM to bless your actions all the time.

More fine details will be revealed as we proceed. Stay with me folks.

Vivo Y12 Features (Preview)

Granted you are a fashionista, the Aqua Blue and Burgundy Red colours of the Vivo Y12 will appeal to you instantly. The gradient design in their finishing plays a good role in that angle. It’s well suited for portability because of the 190.5g weight and 8.9mm thickness.

If your hands are small, the 6.35-inch diagonal of the smartphone might feel huge at first. With time, this large screen will look even small in your eyes. A modest resolution of 720 x 1544 pixels determines how smooth the texts and colours appear.

With 4G connectivity in the bag, you can load web pages within seconds once your Internet data is active. Its Bluetooth 5.0 ensures that you connect rapidly and at long distances to your Bluetooth speakers and other devices.

One of the key highlights of the device is the 5,000mAh battery that delivers about two days of smooth running. Two variants of 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM are available for you to choose from.

MediaTek Helio P22 with an octa-core 2.0GHz processor and PowerVR GE8320 GPU sits as the hardware general. Meanwhile, the software roles are overseen by the latest Android 9.0 Pie OS.

In the camera section, triple cameras are positioned at the rear together with a LED flash that adds brightness in the dark. The cameras have 13MP, 8MP and 2MP sensors. Selfies are taken smoothly by the 8MP front shooter.
