Only in May 2016, we saw the global launch of the Vivo V3 Max and we gave it an awesome unboxing and review after we were able to get first dibs of the 5.5 smartphone. In the said article, we mentioned Vivo’s global stand Q1 2016 in the world, making the brand more aggressive when it comes to developing competitive smartphones for end-users.
This month of October, we were invited to an exclusive launch of their new mobile device, the Vivo Y55, a new companion for young Filipinos who love to express themselves with the Vivo mobile phones.
The Vivo Y55 promises to “light up your selfies” with its Smart Screen Flash and high-quality front facing camera that elevates the selfie game. From its branding, the Vivo Y55 enters the selfie camera stage that many smartphones have jumped into.
The Vivo Y55 features a 5.2-inch with a 1280×720 pixel display on an ultra-slim unibody design. It’s also the first entry-level Vivo smartphone to be powered by an octa-core processor – a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 running at 1.4GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage.
Aside from the Smart Screen Flash, Vivo Y55 also features the Smart Split 2.0 which makes multitasking a breeze with a simple click.
But one thing that made our heads turn is the Triple Card Slots for 4G SIM and Micro SD card up to 128GB for more flexibility.
And speaking of the selfie game, Vivo Y55’s front facing camera snaps photos at 5MP, assisted by the Smart Screen Flash technology. Its main camera is rated at 8MP and can take photos and scale it up to 32MP in Ultra HD mode.
