Vivo Y12G has arrived in India without any launch announcement. The new Vivo phone is available with dual rear cameras as well as a waterdrop-style display notch. The Vivo Y12G also includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 SoC and 20:9 display. Vivo has preloaded features such as Multi-Turbo 3.0 to customise the phone with its proprietary experience. The Vivo Y12G competes against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy M12, Redmi 9 Power, and the Poco M2. The smartphone also appears to be identical to the Vivo Y12s that was launched in the Indian market in January.
Vivo Y12G price in India has been set at Rs. 10,990 for the lone 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant. The phone is currently available for purchase in Glacier Blue and Phantom Black colours through the Vivo India website. At the time of writing, there are no listings on e-commerce sites or the sites of major retailers in India. Vivo India, however, confirmed to Gadgets 360 that the Vivo Y12G will also be available through Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm, Tatacliq, and across all partner retail stores.
