Following the rumors, Vivo’s new Y-series smartphone, the Vivo Y19, has finally been shown the daylight. The Vivo V19 is a mid-range oriented smartphone that is the same as the Vivo U3 in terms of design and the specs with the only exception reflecting in the processor. The Vivo Y19 is underpinned by a MediaTek Helio P65 SoC versus the Snapdragon 675 SoC present inside the Vivo U3.
The Vivo Y19 features a gradient back design, triple-rear camera setup, and a notched display upfront. However, a beefy 5,000mAh battery is what is considered the salient aspect of the device.
