It is time for a new Vivo Y-series budget smartphone and this time, it is called the Vivo Y50t. The phone does not offer 5G support and is restricted to 4G LTE connectivity. Other main highlights include a triple rear camera setup and a bigger battery. Even though high refresh rate displays have become common, Vivo has not opted for it this time around.
The Vivo Y50t sports a 6.53-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) display with a punch-hole in the top left corner. The panel offers a 120Hz touch sampling rate but just a 60Hz refresh rate. The choice of processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G with Adreno 618 GPU. There is a single 8GB of RAM option available with 128GB of onboard storage. It also has microSD card support for storage expansion purposes.
The triple rear camera setup includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.79 aperture, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The selfie camera on the phone is an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.05 aperture. There is a 4,500mAh battery to keep the lights on and is supported by 18W fast charging. The phone also has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It will ship with Funtouch OS 11.1 based on Android 11 but there is no USB Type-C port here.
As for the pricing, the Vivo Y50t will cost CNY 1,399 (about $220) for the sole 8GB/128GB model. It is already available for purchase and it will be sold in Secret Realm Black and Blue color options.
