Vivo Y71 price has been dropped in India. The 4GB RAM variant of the Vivo Y71 that debuted in the country at Rs. 12,990 is now available at Rs. 11,990. Notably, the handset was launched in its 3GB RAM variant back in April at a price of Rs. 10,990. It comes with an 18:9 FullView display and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC. Similar to other budget Android smartphones in the current market, the Vivo Y71 also has thin bezels and comes preloaded with a face unlock feature called Face Access. It also runs Android Oreo with the company's custom FunTouch skin on top.
The price drop was first tipped by Mumbai-based mobile retailer Mahesh Telecom in a tweet on Monday. While the new price is yet to be reflected on the Vivo E-Store and Amazon India, we've received confirmation of the price cut from Vivo India, which adds that only the 4GB RAM variant has had its price slashed - the 3GB RAM variant is still available at its Rs. 10,990 price.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Vivo Y71 runs Android 8.1 Oreo on top of FunTouch OS 4.0 and features a 6-inch HD+ (720x1440 pixels) FullView display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, there is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC, coupled with 3GB and 4GB RAM options. The smartphone also has a 13-megapixel sensor at the back along with a PDAF (phase-detection autofocus) lens and an LED flash. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel sensor. The rear camera supports a lighting optimisation feature to enhance low light results. Similarly, there is an AI Beauty mode for selfies.
The Vivo Y71 is equipped with 16GB and 32GB storage options that both are expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB). There are connectivity options including 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, FM radio, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
