vivo Malaysia has confirmed through its official Facebook page that the Y22s, its latest mid-range smartphone, is arriving soon in Malaysia. Based on details gleaned from the brand’s global website, the upcoming handset appears to be a more budget-friendly mid-range offering – featuring a Snapdragon chipset, dual-camera setup, large battery capacity and more.
For starters, the vivo Y22s has a notched 6.55-inch LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels, an aspect ratio of 20.1:9, an NTSC color gamut of 70% and a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz. Also on board is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, speaker, USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone is rated IP5X for dust resistance, IPX4 for water resistance and is available in Summer Cyan or Starlit Blue colors.
Under the hood is a 4G-capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 – a chipset also found on a fellow Y-series mid-ranger released locally in August this year the vivo Y35. This includes a memory configuration of up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. As you might have expected, this model also comes with a RAM expansion feature that can convert storage space into virtual memory to improve performance.
The Y22s is equipped with a battery capacity of 5,000 mAh, which is pretty standard for most current-generation mid-range or even entry-level smartphones. It also has support for 18W fast charging, which is claimed to take around 70 minutes to charge 70% of the battery. In addition, the new vivo handset features Android 12 as standard via the brand’s Funtouch 12 platform, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, but no NFC support.
In terms of imaging, the vivo Y22s only comes with a dual camera setup on the back, which consists of a 50MP f/1.8 primary and a 2MP f/2.4 macro sensor. In the notch on the screen, on the other hand, there is an 8 MP f/2.0 camera on the front.
vivo Malaysia has yet to confirm the availability and price of the Y22s in Malaysia, although the brand is expected to unveil the first one very soon. For reference, the smartphone launched in Vietnam for VND 5,990,000 (~RM 1,102) a few months ago.
