Vivo just launched a new mid-range smartphone in Malaysia, the Vivo Y78. Sporting a 120Hz dual curved screen with a 64MP camera – complete with optical image stabilisation – the Y78 looks to be a rather interesting mid-ranger that doesn’t cost a lot of money either.
For the Malaysian market, only one variant of the Y78 is offered. Packed with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, the phone retails at RM1,399 on our shores. Two colour options are available: Dreamy Gold and Flare Black.
For that kind of money, the Y78 features a 6.78-inch 2400 x 1080 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also has a triple camera system made up of the aforementioned 64MP main sensor with OIS, a 2MP macro shooter, and a 2MP depth lens.
Other specifications of the Y78 include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, a 16MP selfie camera, a 5,000mAh battery with support for 44W fast charging, and Funtouch OS 13 based on Android 13 out of the box.
The Vivo Y78 is now available for purchase in Malaysia for RM1,399. Early birds can also get RM599 worth of freebies, including a pair of wireless earbuds, a 180-day extended warranty, and a 180-day screen protection.
