Vivo Y30 has debuted as the latest smartphone in the company's Y series. While Vivo is yet to launch the new smartphone through its official channels, a listing has surfaced on a Malaysian online store to confirm the existence of the Vivo Y30 along with its specifications and pricing details. The new smartphone comes with a hole-punch display, which the company calls the “Ultra O Screen” design. The Vivo Y30 also has quad rear camera setup, including a depth sensor.
The Vivo Y30 price is set at MYR 899 (roughly Rs. 15,800) for the lone 128GB storage variant, as featured on the Lazada Malaysia website. The smartphone comes in Dazzle Blue and Moonstone White colour options. Moreover, it is scheduled to launch in the Malaysian market on May 9.
Details about the global launch of the Vivo Y30 are yet to be revealed. Nevertheless, it could debut in India — at least if we look at the historical records of Vivo.
