Along with the new duo of flagship phonesthe X6 and the X6 Plus smartphonesVivo also silently launched a new budget smartphone called the Vivo Y51. The Y51 and the Y51L handsets were only recently certified by Chinese regulatory body TENAA.
Sporting a set of hardware specifications that is no doubt humbler than those of the two flagships, the Vivo Y51 has a 5-inch IPS display with a low 960 x 540 pixels qHD resolutionor at least a quarter of a 1080p Full HD resolutionwith pixel density rate of 221 ppi. The device measures 143.8×71.7×7.5 mm, and it weighs around 157 grams. The back panel of the device features a “crystal” material that is smooth and shiny.
The new Vivo Y51 runs under a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset with a quad-core CPU clocking in at 1.2 GHz. The device packs more than sufficient memory with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. Since the built-in storage may not be sufficient for most users, the device fortunately supports microSD external expansion of up to 128GB.
As for the camera, the Vivo Y51 is equipped with an 8-megapixel main rear camera with 1080p Full HD recording capabilities. This is coupled with a 5-megapixel front facing snapper.
Likewise, the new device is powered by a 2,350mAh battery. It supports dual SIM functionality and connectivity options including LTE mobile connection, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio, and surprisingly, Infrared.
As for the other TENAA-certified device, the Y51L was not detailed on the company’s Chinese website yet. The release date and pricing details for the Y51 smartphone was not mentioned on the site listing as well.
