Vivo is looking to follow the launch of the Vivo V19 in the Kenyan market with the unveiling of yet another smartphone, the Vivo Y30.
The budget smartphone which was launched in May is set to be launched locally in a week’s time.
The Vivo Y30 packs a 6.47-inch HD+ display and one of its key standout features its AI quad-camera setup at the back, the only echo to the V-series we have seen recently.
It also packs the same chipset, the MediaTek Helio P35, that we have seen in budget devices from Huawei, sub-brand Honor, Oppo, Xiaomi and Infinix over the last 2 years.
Given its status, the device sidesteps Vivo’s legendary fast-charging technology but, thankfully, keeps the USB Type-C charging port that we have become used to not seeing in budget devices from the likes of Tecno and Infinix, some of the segment’s market leaders.
Even though Vivo is remaining tight-lipped over the device’s pricing at the moment, we expect it to be within the Kshs 21,000 to Kshs 25,000 range that it has been retailing at elsewhere in the world.
While there is a 64GB variant of the device, Vivo Kenya will be availing the 128GB variant.
