Loaded with features for less?

The handset highlights a Dynamic Design available in Gleaming Orange and Agate Green colorway. It features a slightly curved back cover and a slim body at just 8.09 mm. This is also the only sub-PHP 10K smartphone in the market with an IP64 rating that protects the phone from total dust ingress and low-pressure water jets from any direction.

vivo is also claiming that this phone is extra durable and has been tested to work even in extreme environments.

In front, it uses a large 6.68-inch LCD screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, up to 1,000 nits of peak brightness, and DC dimming. However, the resolution is only HD+ at 1608 x 720 pixels.

Under the hood, it is still using the old 2.0GHz 12nm MediaTek Helio G85 octa-core processor with Mali-G52 2EEMC2 (1,000MHz) GPU.

Thankfully, the memory options are quite large. In particular, it comes with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM (8GB Extended RAM) and has up to 256GB of slower eMMC 5.1 expandable storage.

The main highlight of the device is it uses a massive 6,000mAh battery with 4-year longevity similar to its fellow BBK mobile companies like OPPO/OnePlus. How? It uses a cell with up to 1600 cycles before reaching 80 percent of battery health.

The company claims that it can last up to 39.7 hours of using Facebook, 24.1 hours of YouTube playback, and 7.2 hours of PUBG gaming.

vivo also paired it with 44W fast charging via USB-C. The company said that a 5-minute fast charge would be enough for 2.6 hours of phone calls or 2.8 hours of Facebook. It also has the Smart Charging Engine 2.0 tech with overnight charging protection and temperature control as well as a so-called 24-Dimension Security Protection solution.

For cameras, it has a 50MP f/1.8 snapper with a 2MP helper.

It also has the "Dynamic Light" flash that also syncs with music, gentle notifications, and a selfie countdown.

On the punch-hole of its screen, it has an 8MP f/2.5 selfie snapper.

The rest of the specs
Other features of the phone include a side-mounted fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and Hi-Res Audio certification.

It runs with Android 14 OS with Funtouch OS 14 skin out of the box with a Split-Screen mode and Hidden Photos. The company also promises that it has up to 48 months of smooth experience.
