Yet another triple camera smartphone from Vivo has seen the light in India. Dubbed “Vivo Y12” the new smartphone went on sale today although it was expected in the first week of June. The Vivo Y12 is tantalizingly priced at just INR12,490 and is available at major brick and mortar stores across India as well as on Amazon India e-store.

The Vivo Y12, besides having the triple-rear-camera module, offers a few more highlighting features which include gradient design, water-drop notch, dedicated Ultra Gaming Mode, Android Pie, and a whopping 5,000mAh battery.

The Vivo Y12 is akin to the Vivo Y15 in terms of design and specs except for the selfie camera. The Vivo Y12 packs a 6.35-inc Halo FullView display with 1544×720 HD+ resolution, 19.3:9 aspect ratio, and a water-drop style notch that accommodates the selfie camera. The back panel mimics glass-like build though it is made out of polycarbonate.

Under the hood, it makes use of a 12nm MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core SoC for pumping power that is mated to PowerVR GE8320 GPU, 3GB/4GB RAM, and 32GB/64GB internal storage which can be further expanded up to 256GB via microSD card.


The phone comes in two variants such as the 3GB RAM+64GB storage variant and the 4GB RAM+32GB storage variant. Both variants are priced at INR12,490, though currently, only the 4GB RAM+32GB internal storage model is on sale. The phone is available in Aqua Blue and Burgundy Red color options.

For the imaging department, the Vivo Y12 mounts a vertically-stacked triple-camera setup at the back which includes a 13MP primary sensor with f/2.2 aperture. an 8MP ultra-wide-angle secondary sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. Up front, it packs an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture.

A massive 5,000mAh non-removable battery backs the phone, however, it lacks the fast charging support. On the software side of things, it runs out-of-the-box Android 9 Pie with Funtouch OS layered on top. It tips the scales at 190.5 grams and measures 159.43×76.77×8.92mm in dimension. Other standard connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, micro USB 2.0 port, FM Radio, 3.5mm audio jack, etc. I
