Vivo has launched a Vivo Y53 successor over the weekend without much ceremony in India. The handset known as the Vivo Y53i is an ultra-cheap offering from the company tagged with an MRP of Rs 8,990.
Thought the handset does replace the Vivo Y53, it has changed little from its predecessor. It carries the same old look and internals and even the same Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS disappointingly from last year. As for the display, the Vivo Y53i has a 5.0-inch qHD IPS display with a resolution of 540 x 960p. All those pixels lie on top of a middling Snapdragon 425 chip assisted by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
Camera-wise, there isn’t much to write home about either. The rear is home to an 8MP shooter with a f/2.0 aperture while the selfie shooter is a 5MP lens.
The Vivo Y53i does come with 4G VoLTE connectivity and is powered by a 2500mAh battery.
Looking at the specifications mentioned, it’s highly unlikely that the handset will manage to make a splash in the entry-level segment. Handsets like the Redmi 5 will easily outshine and outperform the Vivo Y53i in most respects. Hence, it is very tough to recommend the handset with other much better options to our readers.
