Photo Announcement. Vivo Y100 - smartphone with optical stabilization, inexpensive

Vivo has introduced a curious smartphone called Vivo Y100 in the homeland of elephants and yogis. Let's get acquainted.

The chipset is called MediaTek Dimensity 900. Not the freshest, 2021. But still confidently pulls on the middle class. 6 nanometers, under half a million parrots in AnTuTu.

Memory. Apparently, there will be only one variety - 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of permanent memory. There is support for memory cards, but the tray is hybrid.

The screen is quite small by modern standards, only 6.38" (98 cm²). AMOLED matrix, slightly increased - up to 90 Hz - refresh rate�Fellowship. High resolution - 1080x2400 (413 ppi).

Medium capacity battery - 4500 mAh. Charging is fast, but not excessive - 44 W.

Cameras. The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP. There are three rear cameras - 64 + 2 + 2 MP. Who are 2 + 2 MP, I think you can guess for yourself. The main camera, which is valuable, is equipped with optical stabilization. For smartphones of this class, the phenomenon is infrequent. Which sensor is used, unfortunately, is not reported.

There is support for 5G networks, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi, standard audio output. The fingerprint scanner, of course, is also available. But whereNamely, it was hidden - under the screen or in the power button - is not reported. I would put on under the screen. And then the buttons on Vivo Y100 are painfully compact.

NFC-module, apparently, no. There is also no support for our LTE networks - neither the seventh band, nor the twentieth.

The Vivo Y100 will cost ₹24999 (₽22400, $302) in India. Quite inexpensive for a confident middle-class smartphone with optical stabilization. Huh?
