With the Vivo Y22 launch completed a few days ago, the BBK-owned brand is on a roll, deploying the Vivo Y21’s successor to multiple countries one after the other. According to our internal sources, Y22 could launch in Pakistan by the end of September. For those looking for a more powerful budget phone, the Y22 could be a good option.
The Vivo Y22, the latest entry-level rival, has a charming design, high-class performance, and a nice pair of cameras. The phone runs Android 12 x FuntouchOS 12 out of the box and comes in three stunning colours: Starlite Blue, Metaverse Green, and Summer Cyan.
The Vivo Y22 has IP54 water and dust resistance and a sleek flat-rim design with a slightly raised rear camera island. The island is outfitted with a dual-camera housing that houses a 50MP Wide Alpha and a 2MP Macro Beta lens. The black accented module contrasts nicely with all three colors.
The upcoming Y22 features a drop-notch selfie camera (8MP) that blends into the screen. Vivo’s new Y model features a 6.55-inch IPS screen with a 720p resolution. Because of the 82.4% screen-to-body ratio, the bezels feel a little chunky. The Y22 has a side-mounted thumbprint scanner for privacy and security. It is powered by a 5000mAh cell and charges with a standard 18-Watt Fast charger. For the low Vivo prices, it offers two storage options: a 128GB model with 6GB RAM and a 64GB model with 4GB RAM.
The Funtouch operating system on the Y22 is being boosted by MediaTek’s Helio G85 chipset. It’s a 12nm octa-core silicon with two performance cores running at 2.0GHz and six efficiency cores running at 1.8GHz. Vivo Y22 will be a formidable rival with features such as dual SIM standby, expandable RAM and storage, eye-catching Crystalline Mate back panel technology, and an expected 38,999 PKR price tag.
