A new Vivo phone has been spotted on the TENAA website, the Chinese equivalent of the Philippines’ NTC and the US’ FCC, and we have good reason to believe it belongs to the V7 series.

According to the TENAA certification, the Vivo Y75 will come with a 5.7-inch display, sporting a resolution of 720 x 1,440 on an 18:9 aspect ratio, identical to that of the Vivo V7+. Which leaves us thinking this could be either the Vivo V7, Vivo V7 Lite, or Vivo V7S.

It even looks like a smaller version of the V7+, replete with a lighter body weighing 139 grams and rocking a fingerprint reader on the back and power and volume buttons along the right edge. The lack of physical navigation buttons suggests Vivo’s intention to implement software keys to get around the Android Nougat-based interface.

The front likewise sees a 16-megapixel camera, which stays true to the V7 series’ positioning as the ultimate selfie smartphone. Meanwhile, the back-facing camera is 13 megapixels. A 2,900mAh battery powers the Vivo Y75.

…looks like the Vivo V7+.

The exact make of the processor is not known, though the listing indicates it should have eight cores clocked at up to 2GHz. Considering this unit is probably the lower-specced stablemate of the V7+, the processor could be a MediaTek Helio P10 or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. Note that the Snapdragon 450 inside the V7+ supports newer features and offers similar performance compared to the Snapdragon 625.
