Vivo Y32 Official: First Smartphone with Snapdragon 680

Vivo Y32

Vivo has introduced Y32, the latest addition to its "Y" series portfolio in China. It is a low-end midrange smartphone that will cater for the needs of those that want average specs at a lower price. Moreover, it is the first device to be powered by the Snapdragon 680 chipset.

The Vivo Y32 is a 4G smartphone. It features a 6.51-inch LCD screen with HD+ (1600x720) resolution that only refreshes at 60Hz. The screen has no protection, but at the top is a water-drop notch that accommodate the 8MP selfie camera. It has a noticeable bottom bezel as could be expected on a entry-level device.

There is a rectangle island at the back that housed the cameras - a 13MP main camera and a 2MP depth camera. The main camera can only record Full HD (1080p) video, although the front camera can do that as well.

At the side of the Vivo Y32 is a power button that double up as a fingerprint sensor, and the volume keys. At the bottom is a USB Type-C port, the primary mic, and the speaker, while the secondary mic is located at the top. The phone also has a 3.5mm headphones jack to listen to audio offline.

There is only one single version of it, which have 8GB RAM (LPDDR4X) and 128GB storage. The RAM can be virtually expanded up to 4GB under the settings (making a total of 12GB), and there is a microSD slot to expand the storage as well.

A lot of features such as Game Box (10.0) and Multi Turbo (5.5) are loaded on the Y32, thanks to the Android 11-based OriginOS 1.0 that it runs. Users have the option to use face unlock for biometric instead of password or fingerprint, both of which are available on the device.

Some of the connectivity present are Bluetooth 5, WiFi 802.11ac (dual band), and GPS. It is fuelled by a 5000mAh battery that is claimed to deliver 13 hours of video playback, or 143 hours of music playback. 18W fast charging is supported out-of-the-box.
