The device is powered by a 64-bit octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The device comes with 32GB of in-built storage, which is expandable via a microSD card (up to 256GB).
Staying true to its selfie-focused heritage, the Vivo Y66 boasts a 16-megapixel front camera with a Moonlight Glow display flash feature. The rear gets a 13-megapixel camera with LED flash. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 with OTG, GPS, and FM radio. Sensors include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor.
The smartphone packs a big 3000mAh battery, measures 153.8×75.5×7.6mm, and weighs 155 grams. Additional features on the Vivo Y66 include a ‘Smart Screen-Split’ feature for multitasking and an ‘Eye Protection Mode’ that reduces strain on the eye when chatting and watching videos simultaneously.
“Y66 is a testimony to our commitment towards valued customers to constantly offer them varied choices. We are pleased to launch this device, a stellar addition to the popular Y series collection. At Vivo, we are strongly focused on offering cutting edge technology at affordable prices,” Vivek Zhanh, CMO, Vivo India said at the launch.
Vivo in a statement also announced that Vivo Y66 users will get Saavn’s premium ad-free music service for free for six months. The company earlier this month launched the Vivo Y25 budget smartphone in Malaysia at a price of MYR 499 (roughly Rs.7,500) and it’s still unknown whether the entry-level smartphone will make it to the Indian market.
