(Update, May 4: Our review of the Vivo Y12s is up!)

The country’s No. 1 smartphone vendor has launched the Vivo Y12s, just a little over two weeks after it introduced the Vivo Y20s (G). The handset is priced at P6,499 (roughly $135) — or P1,000 ($21) cheaper than the Y20i and Y20i 2021 — and is now available in Glacier Blue and Phantom Black colors nationwide.

The device has a battery rated at 5,000mAh, which Vivo says should help the Y12s last for a maximum of 16.3 hours of HD movie streaming. It gets a side-mounted fingerprint sensor that doubles as a power key. There’s a 13-megapixel primary camera paired with a 2-megapixel one on the back and an 8-megapixel sensor up front. And it ships with Android 10 layered with Funtouch OS 11 out of the box.
