The first 5G phone in Vivo‘s bestselling smartphone series is set to debut tomorrow, March 22, in Thailand. But we already have most of the details of the device ahead of its launch.
(Update, March 23: The 5G-ready Y series phone is already priced in Thailand! Meet the Vivo Y72 5G with 64MP triple cam and 5,000mAh battery.)
Thai tech site MXPhone has posted a preview of the Vivo Y72 5G, revealing everything there is to know about the Y series model except its price.

Sure, Vivo has already teased the design of the upcoming handset, but the published live images of the Y72 give us a closer — not to mention better — look at the unit. And our first reaction? The Vivo Y72 5G’s design doesn’t stray away from the premium style of the company’s current phones, such as the V20 models.
The post reveals that the 64-megapixel main camera is paired with a 2-megapixel macro sensor and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle one that likewise serves as a portrait lens. It also shows that the 5,000mAh battery supports 18 watts of fast charging via USB-C.

The smartphone is apparently powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700, the same affordable 5G chip that’s inside devices like the Realme V11 5G and Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G. Which could mean that the Y72 is going to be the brand’s most affordable 5G-ready unit globally. It comes from a budget-friendly lineup, after all.
What are its other features? The Vivo Y72 5G is said to sport a a 6.58-inch FHD+ IPS screen with a 2,408 × 1,080 resolution; a 16-megapixel selfie camera that’s housed in a waterdrop notch; 8GB of RAM; 128GB of storage; a side-mounted fingerprint reader; and Android 11 on top of FunTouch OS 11.1.
Vivo Philippines hasn’t announced if the yet-to-be-launched Y series phone will be released here, but if they do, we’ll be one of the first to tell you.
