Vivo is one of the largest mobile phone brands worldwide but has not yet landed in Spain and the rest of Europe. This was expected to be done in the first half of 2020 but COVID-19 has modified the initial plans.
Today the company has presented a new mid-range smartphone, the Vivo Y51s, whose main feature is the inclusion of a 5G modem … thanks to a Samsung processor.

An almost identical mobile to the IQOO U1
This mobile has a not particularly striking design, as well as correct specifications for the mid-range. And it may sound familiar to you because it is the same model that Vivo’s affiliate, IQOO, presented in mid-July as IQOO U1.
The only differences are in the chosen processor and memory variants.
This Vivo Y51s uses the Exynos 880, a Samsung chipset that gives it 5G connectivity. But unlike the U1, it only has one memory variant, with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory.
The rear area houses three cameras. The first is a 48 Mpx sensor, the second is a 2 Mpx macro sensor, and the last sensor is used for depth measurements. It is strange to see a mid-range mobile without a wide angle.
For its part, the front camera is 8 Mpx, and is housed in a hole in the screen.
The battery is 4500 mAh in capacity and has a fast charge of 18W. The fingerprint reader is on the side since it cannot be placed under the screen as it is a 6.53 ″ LCD panel with FHD + resolution.
Price and availability
The Vivo Y51s can be purchased in China in black, white or blue for 1,798 yuan, about 220 euros in exchange.
