Earlier in February, Vivo launched the Y31 in the Philippines with a suggested retail price of P12,999 (around $261 converted).
The Y31 featured a 48-megapixel main camera and the capable 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 platform with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Its successor, the Vivo Y32, has been announced today, and it’s the world’s first smartphone built around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset.
If you’re not familiar, the Snapdragon 680 is a 4G chip with eight Kryo 265 CPU cores clocked up to 2.4GHz, which are essentially Kryo 260 cores (the same cores found in the Snapdragon 662) operating at a higher clock speed. Both the Snapdragon 680 and 662 share an Adreno 610 GPU.
Camera-wise, the new chip incorporates the Qualcomm Spectra 346 ISP, which can process image data from three different cameras simultaneously. Unfortunately, the Vivo Y32 only has two rear cameras, with the secondary camera being a 2-megapixel unit for macro shots.
As for the rest of the specs, the Y32 sports a 6.51-inch HD+ LCD running at 60Hz, an 8-megapixel selfie shooter, and a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18-watt fast charging over USB-C, same as the Y31. According to Vivo, the Y32 should have enough battery backup for up to 27 days of standby time, 13 hours of gaming, or 13 hours of video playback on a single charge.
In China, the Vivo Y32 will be offered in two colors and is priced at ¥1,399 ($219 or P10,943) for the 8GB/128GB storage variant.
