Entry level Vivo’s Y01 with 5000mAh battery and Helio P35 CPU goes official


Vivo has officially listed the Y01 smartphone on the company’s international website, as well as on some regional/country sites, like Kenya. The phone comes in a 6.51-inches screen, powered by MediaTek Helio P35 CPU and available in either 2/3GB RAM, with a single 32-Gigs of built-in storage.

Probably this is going to be Vivo’s most affordable smartphone for the year, replacing the Y1s in most regions. So to keep cost low, the company knocked out a secondary camera from the phone’s rear, retaining only a single 8-megapixel lens, while a 5-megapixel selfie snapper is kept within the notch on the front.

Entry level Vivo's Y01 with 5000mAh battery and Helio P35 CPU goes official Vivo Y01 review and price

The design is very reminiscent to most recent affordable smartphones we’ve seen from Vivo; the recent Y10, just for an example. It is powered by a 5000mAh battery, and boot Google Android 11 (Go Edition), based on Funtouch 11.1 out of the box.

Most cheap Vivo phones are not offered with a physical fingerprint scanner, and the Y01 is not an except; all you are getting is AI faceID and default Android locks of course. The phone measures 164.41 x 76.32 x 8.41 mm, and weighs around 178 grams.

  1. This is such a nice smartphone by Vivo. I like the features such as 8-mp camera, 5000 mAh battery backup, Mediatek Helio P35 chipset, etc.

  2. I think an 8-megapixel lens back camera with a 5-megapixel selfie snapper will be good, plus the Mediatek chipset will surely enhance its performance.
