Vivo, the No.1 smartphone vendor in the Philippines in the second quarter of 2020, is introducing its first 5G model in the country. But ahead of that unveiling, it has launched something in the entry-level category first.
The Vivo Y11 with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is official locally, selling exclusively on ecommerce site Shopee for P5,499, or roughly $113 converted. But if you buy it on Vivo Philippines’ Super Brand Day, which happens to be today, August 14, you”ll get a P200 ($4) discount. That means you’ll only pay P5,299 ($109) for it.
Launched in the Philippines: Vivo Y11 with lower RAM
The current Vivo Y11 model with 3GB of RAM, which has been one of the brand’s bestselling phones since its launch in the Philippines in 2019, is priced at P6,499 ($133).
Besides the difference in RAM, the two variants are actually the same — from the big battery rated at 5,000mAh to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chip and total of three cameras used. But we won’t be surprised if the new, cheaper version will be a hit as well; as people turn to online learning this coming school year, some of them will look for an affordable handset that they can use specifically for that purpose.
