Vivo India recently added another selfie-focused smartphone to their offerings with the launch of Vivo Y66 in India. The handset’s main feature is aimed at winning over selfie lovers with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera. The mid-ranged smartphone is priced at Rs. 14,990 and will be available in Crown Gold and Matte Black color options.
The Vivo Y66 comes with a 2.5D curved glass, metallic radiance back cover and sleek unibody design. The smartphone offers a 13MP rear camera and a 16MP front camera with moonlight glow. “The “Moonlight Glow” feature induces a natural glow on the face without straining eyes that light up the picture irrespective of the lighting conditions,” the company explained at the product launch.
The Vivo Y66 runs Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, sporting a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display with a 2.5D curved glass on top and a metallic unibody design.
The device is powered by a 64-bit Octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The device comes with 32GB of in-built storage, which is expandable via a microSD card (up to 256GB). Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 with OTG, GPS, and FM radio. Sensors include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor and lack fingerprint sensor.
The Y66 also comes with certain additional features such as a ‘Smart Screen-Split’ mode to make multi-tasking easy, an “Eye Protection Mode” which is basically a blue-light filter for the display and a 6-month free subscription to Saavn Pro, which provides an ad-free experience with unlimited song downloads.
