In November last year, Vivo launched the Y12s a budget phone packing a Mediatek Helio P35 processor. The smartphone was only launched in Nepal in February this year. The Chinese tech giant has now come up with its successor dubbed Vivo Y12s 2021. The phone packs a large screen, an elegant body, a large battery and a good camera. So, let’s dive into the full specs, features and expected price of Vivo Y12s in Nepal with its availability.
The Y12s 2021 sports an impressive 6.51-inch LCD screen. It is a HD+ panel that produces a resolution of 720×1600 pixels. The waterdrop notch display has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and 270 ppi density.
The smartphone measures 164.41 x 76.32 x 8.41mm in dimension and weighs 191grams. It features a plastic build with glossy finish. There’s a rectangular camera housing around the back and a side mounted fingerprint reader integrated in the power button for biometrics. This phone comes in Mysterious Black and Ice Blue color.
The Vivo Y12s 2021 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor. For reference the previous model arrived with the MediaTek Helio P35 chip. Thus, it’s one of the biggest upgrades. Similarly, the handset is available in a sole 3GB RAM and 32GB storage option with dedicated microSD slot for expanding the storage.
In terms of software, the phone ships with the Funtouch 11 based on Android 11 out of the box. It is also a major upgrade over the Y12s which runs on Android 10.
For optics, at the top left corner of the rear panel, there’s a dual camera setup and LED flash enclosed in a vertically aligned module. The module includes a 13MP main camera and a 2MP depth. Moving to the front is an 8MP camera lens.
Battery and Miscellaneous
Another selling point of the Y12s 2021 is a generous 5,000 mAh battery but it remains unchanged when compared to its predecessor. However, the battery charges at the rate of 10W via a micro-USB port. Meanwhile, the handset supports 5V/1A reverse charging. According to the company, this battery can last up to 17.4 hours of HD movies viewing and 10.2 hours of continuous gaming on a single charge.
For connectivity, the smartphone supports dual-SIM, 4G, -Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, GLONASS and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Y12s 2021 price has been set at VND 3,290,000 in Vietnam and is available via e-retailer FPTShop. We expect the Vivo Y12s 2021 price in Nepal to be around NPR 16,500 when it launches in the country.
