The vivo Y22s popped up in Vietnam last month, and now the company is offering an even more affordable version, called vivo Y22. The device is already up for pre-order in Indonesia for IDR2,399,000, which is about $160.
The lower the price, the company brought an older chipset and less memory, but kept the dual cameras and the big battery.
The vivo Y22 is built around a 6.55” LCD with 720p resolution and a waterdrop notch on top. There’s a 50MP camera on the back and an 8MP selfie shooter. Other similarities with the Y22s include the footprint, and while they both have a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging, the Y22 is 2 grams lighter.
The big change is the chipset, which is a Helio G85. vivo calls it a “gaming processor” but in reality, it is a two-year-old platform that was powering mid-rangers devices back in mid-2020.
The vivo Y22 comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, while a 6/128GB version is expected later on. The price is IDR2,399,000, which is about $160, and customers in Indonesia can already pre-order the device in Starlite Blue, Metaverse Green, or Summer Cyan colors.
