Following the launch of the Y21T, vivo has unveiled another addition to its Y-Series in the Philippines. The vivo Y73 is powered by a Helio G95 SoC, and boasts a 64MP main camera, among other key specifications.
vivo Y73 comes in two colors: Diamond Flare and Roman Black. Both draw inspiration from nature and are equipped with Anti-Glare (AG) surfaces to significantly reduce smudging. It has a 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, and is powered by a Helio G95 SoC along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Like a lot of other vivo smartphones, it also features Ultra Game Mode that basically mutes background notifications to prevent you from distracted in-game.
For optics, the 64MP AI Night Rear Camera ensures good quality images even when zoomed in, and also allows for recording 4K videos. You also get EIS and Steadiface Selfie so that your face remains still even when the background is moving. There is also Super Night Selfie, AI Super Night Mode with AI-supported noise reduction for well-lit and clear photos even in low-light.
vivo Y73 runs Funtouch OS 11.1 on top of Android 11 and houses a 4,000mAh battery with 33W fast-charging. Other features include Bluetooth 5 and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
