The 7nm MediaTek Dimensity 720 chip was introduced to allow more people to experience 5G on midrange phones. It debuted on the OPPO A72 5G. Today, Vivo has finally launched its first device with the said processor.
The Vivo Y73s 5G is now official in China, with a price that’s attractive for the value it offers, at least on paper.
The device costs ¥1,998 (around P14,434 or $298 converted). Low for a 5G phone, right? For that price, you also already get an AMOLED screen that measures 6.44 inches, an under-display fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, Android 10, and a 4,100mAh battery that supports 18 watts of fast charging.
The camera system on the Vivo Y73s 5G’s back is headlined by a 48-megapixel sensor assisted by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens with a 120-degree field of view and a 2-megapixel portrait shooter. The selfie camera in the waterdrop notch, on the other hand, 16 megapixels.
It doesn’t hurt that the unit looks good, with a look that actually reminds us of Nova smartphones like the Huawei Nova 7 SE 5G.
We’re not sure if the Vivo Y73s 5G is coming here, though, as no Dimensity handsets have become officially available in the country yet. It would be a nice addition to the stable of devices of the company, which happens to be the No. 1 top smartphone vendor in the Philippines as of the second quarter of 2020.
