Surely, there has been a number of Vivo Y30 series in the past, but all of those were given 4G LTE network. None actually had 5G network. But today comes an upgrade; a 5G variant of the Y30, powered by Dimensity 700 CPU, backed by a 6GB RAM and fitted with two camera lenses on the rear.
The phone does not really offer any major screen upgrade. It is the same 720 x 1600 pixels housed in a 6.51-inches screen, with a dewdrop notch on the head. No doubts, the new Vivo Y30 5G will be targeted at the entry-level 5G market, at least the CPU says much on that already.
Camera department almost got some good attention though! It is given two camera lenses on the rear, and the main shooter is a 50-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture, backed by a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture.
If you are celebrating the arrival of 5G network on the vivo Y30 series, well, the presence of a more recent OS is worth celebrating as well. The Y30 5G is booted with Google Android 12 with Funtouch OS v12 out of the box.
Additionally, the device has a fingerprint scanner on the side as well as a slot for multiple card slots. It is 193 grams in weight and come in an 8.25 chassis. Within this body, there is 5000mAh battery that support 10W fast charger. It has 6GB expandable RAM, and offers a single 128-Gigs of expandable internal storage.
