Following the launch of Vivo’s recent Vivo V21 and V21e, the company has yet again released another mid-range smartphone in the Nepali market–the Vivo Y53s. The company’s latest Y-series model that arrived in Nepal is essentially competitive in the segment.
Vivo Y53s overview
The new Vivo Y53s phone has a waterdrop-style display notch and triple rear cameras. A 64-megapixel primary camera, 128GB of inbuilt storage, and 33W rapid charging are among the other features of the Vivo Y53s. Essentially, the device will fit perfectly for the set of demographics looking for normal usage and does not prioritise gaming. The device is also available in two different colour schemes.
Design and display
The design of the Y53s is similar to that of the Vivo previous line-up, and it does not feature any huge difference. However, the phone’s rear panel has a dual-colour glare effect, which looks attractive. The Y53s has a waterdrop-notch upfront, with slim bezels surrounding the sides a noticeable bezel on the chin. The rear of the phone packs a curvy rectangular-shaped camera set-up and a Vivo branding on the bottom. The top of the device has a Simcard tray (with a dedicated memory slot) and a noise cancellation microphone; the bottom of the device has a speaker grille, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack; and the right side of the device features a power button integrated with a fingerprint scanner and volume rockers.
For display, the phone has a 6.58-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2408 pixels and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The display could have been better if the company had installed the LCD panel with a high refresh rate or an AMOLED display. The screen has a screen-to-body ratio of 84.2%; it has an aspect ratio of 20:9; it has a sampling rate of 120Hz; and the ppi density is 401.
The Vivo Y53s is powered by a MediaTek Helio G80, an entry-level chipset, paired with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of expandable internal storage. The company has also provided 3GB of ‘extended RAM’ that essentially uses the inbuilt storage for multitasking. Compared to the price of the phone, the chipset is a bit underpowered; however, the device runs smoothly in day-to-day use.
4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C connector are among the connectivity choices. An accelerometer, ambient light, gyroscope, magnetometer, and proximity sensor are among the sensors onboard. The phone also has a fingerprint sensor on the side. The phone has a massive 5000mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging via the USB Type-C port.
There is the triple rear camera setup that houses a 64-megapixel primary sensor with an aperture of f/1.8, a 2-megapixel macro shooter with an aperture of f/2.4, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with an aperture of f/2.4. The selfie camera is a 16 MP lens with an aperture of f/2.0. Both cameras can record 1080p at 30fps. while the device does not feature an ultra-wide feature, there is an option of a macro camera feature for a close-up picture.
