Just weeks after unveiling it’s much hyped Vivo V19 model, the company is set to unveil yet another device in the Kenyan market. This fallows a successful launch of the V19 that saw the entire Kenyan celebrity crew popularize the handset which offers handy specs on a budget price tag. The Vivo Y30 is more of budget-oriented device with midrange specifications such as an IPS LCD panel instead of an AMOLED we saw on the V19.
Unlike the V19 which packs a 4500mAh battery, the Vivo Y30 bumps the battery a notch higher to 5,000mAh and is therefore expected to perform a tad better than its superior sibling. Additionally, while the V19 offered a range of options to choose from in terms of the internal storage and RAM, the Y30 maxes out at 128GB internal and 4GB of system RAM.
On the front panel, we’re also getting a single selfie camera instead of two as the older sibling and the fingerprint now sits right at the back of the phone for those of us who care about its placement. Design-wise, there’s quite a lot of similarities between the two devices and just from the outside, you’ll easily relate to the older sibling.
Speaking on the imminent launch in the country, Mr. Arthur Xian, vivo Kenya CEO highlighted the company’s efforts to make top-notch smartphones that will usher smartphone enthusiasts into an era of endless possibilities on mobile devices and exceptional photography experiences.
Mr Arthur further noted, the flexible display and design market was growing fast in 2020 and the technology is expected to expand further and diverse. He continued saying that Vivo’s goal was to dominate in the flexible display market by introducing new products with enhanced performance and differentiated designs at an affordable price.
Vivo Y30 which is expected to debut in Kenya in a weeks’ time, packs a Full-Screen display with a 6.47-inch HD+ 720×1560 pixels screen accounting for 82.9 per cent screen-to-body ratio. It’ll also come with 4GB RAM + 128GB storage.
