Vivo Y71 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor. It features a 6 inch HD+ ‘FullView’ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and it will feature a new design technique called the ‘high polymer nano-blasting technique’. It will run on Android 8.1 Oreo and includes 3GB RAM and 16 GB built-in storage capacity.
The battery will have the power capacity of 3360 mAh. Vivo also stresses on the fact that the new smartphone will feature a “Face Access” which is kind of Apple iPhone X’s facial recognition phone unlocking system. But the “Face Access” is claiming to scan the facial features not just to unlock the device but also lower the volume when the user is looking at the screen among other tasks.
It will also have an AI-based 13 MP rear camera with PDAF and based on the face of the subject, the camera will automatically adjust the lighting to get the best results. The front camera can identify the gender, age, skin tone and the texture of the subject and adjust beauty effects accordingly. Along with Xiaomi and Oppo which just happens to be Vivo’s market competition, Vivo will also feature a bezel-less ‘FullView’ display. According to counterpoint research, Vivo is one of the top ten brands to grow rapidly in the smartphone shipment business.
