They’re finally up again. Official listings of the Vivo Y95 on Vivo Philippines’ Facebook Shop and website — which got taken down hours after they went live — are back online, but this time on Lazada and Shopee.
(Update, November 22: We got our hands on this smartphone! Read 72 hours with the Vivo Y95: A hands-on review.)
They confirm what has been reported yesterday: that the new smartphone is priced locally at P13,999 (roughly $264), P2,000 ($38) more than the Vivo Y85 handset released in May this year.
Think of the Vivo Y95 as a souped-up Y85. They have the same 6.2-inch HD screen with a tall aspect ratio of 19:9, albeit with different notch designs; the same amount of RAM (4GB), the same set of 13- and 2-megapixel cameras on the back above a fingerprint sensor, and the same user interface based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
But with the new device, you’re getting twice the internal memory at 64GB, a selfie camera with more megapixels at 20 instead of just 8, and a 4,030mAh battery instead of just 3,260mAh. Underneath the hood is a Qualcomm chip — a Snapdragon 439. Recall that the Y85 is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P22 processor.

The company says the Vivo Y95’s Starry Black and Aurora Red color variants will be available starting today, November 13. You’ll probably have luck going to any one of Vivo’s concept stores and authorized dealers because the phone is still listed as out of stock online.
