In case you missed it, the vivo Y36 is now available in the Philippines.
(Update, August 31: We take a more in-depth look at the vivo Y36’s camera system!)
(Update, August 19: Our vivo Y36 review is up!)
(Update, August 5: The vivo Y36 5G version’s local pricing and availability details are announced!)
And it turns out the smartphone is indeed priced at P12,999 (roughly $239), or P2,000 ($37) cheaper than the vivo Y35 at launch. The new model looks better as well, thanks to vivo housing the 16-megapixel selfie camera in a punch hole this time instead of in a waterdrop-style cutout.
The vivo Y36 is marketed as a gaming-focused phone, with the brand trumpeting the device’s 6.64-inch FHD+ display with 90Hz refresh and 240Hz touch-sampling rates; 6nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset; 8GB RAM with Turbo Memory Booster; 256GB storage that can be expanded up to 1TB; and 5,000mAh battery with 44W fast-charging capability.
