Vivo has launched a new budget mid-range smartphone in the Chinese market. The Vivo Y30 Standard Edition is the newest offering and is a slightly tweaked version of the Vivo Y30 announced in October. Both smartphones are priced almost the same and share a lot of the specs sheet except for a few differences here and there.
The Vivo Y30 Standard Edition is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 processor coupled with 6GB RAM. In comparison, the previous model offers Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chipset with 8GB of RAM. The storage capacity remains unchanged on both phones which is 128GB excluding the microSD card usage.
Another major difference is that the phone comes with just a dual rear camera setup. It offers a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The front camera is an 8-megapixel sensor housed within the notch. The phone has a 6.51-inch HD+ display which is what you get at this price point.
There is a 5,000mAh battery to keep the lights on. It will run Funtouch OS 10.5 based on Android 10 out of the box. Other important features of the phone include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a microUSB port. The Vivo Y30 Standard Edition has been priced at CNY 1,398 for the sole 6GB/128GB configuration. It is currently available only in China with no words on global availability yet.
