[Update: Launched] Vivo Y83 Pro reportedly launching in India with 6.22″ notched display
The Vivo Y83 Pro will soon be launching in India with a 6.22-inch notched display, according to a report from 91Mobiles. It will be released as a successor to the Vivo Y81 that launched in the region earlier this year. We don’t know a lot about its exact specifications such as the SoC, but we do know that it will likely be a MediaTek SoC of some kind.
Other notable features include the 6.22-inch notched FullView 2.0 display. The notch houses all of the device’s major sensors, including the ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, earpiece, and 8MP selfie camera. The back of the device will feature a dual camera setup comprised of a 13MP shooter and a 2MP secondary shooter. On top of that, the Vivo Y83 Pro will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage expandable via a microSD card. Software-wise, it’ll run the company’s latest Funtouch OS 4.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. A 3,260 mAh battery is present as well, though there’s no mention of any kind of fast charging standard present. According to a source close to 91Mobiles, it will also be about 7.7mm thick. That puts it at about an average thickness of smartphones being released today.
But when can we expect to see the Vivo Y83 Pro? According to the report, a release is imminent and expected within the next few weeks in India. No exact pricing is confirmed, but it will sell for around Rs 16,000 (~$228). We don’t know where else it will be available either or if it will be released outside of India. The Vivo Y83 came out in May this year and appears to have been somewhat successful. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on this device to see if it has anything else to bring to the table, or whether it’s simply just another budget phone.
