vivo Y78+ 5G launched in China with 120Hz curved AMOLED, and SD695!

vivo has introduced the Y78+ 5G, the company’s latest phone in the Y series in China, after last year’s Y77. It packs a 6.78-inch Full HD+ 120Hz AMOLED curved screen with a 93.3% screen-to-body ratio and an 8MP camera inside the punch-hole

The main attraction on the vivo Y78 Plus is its screen – a 6.78” AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution (20:9) that boasts 120Hz refresh rate and great color rendering with 100% DCI-P3 coverage (105% NTSC). It’s quite bright too, hitting 1,300 nits at maximum.

And it’s a curved display, similar to more premium offerings, plus there is a fingerprint reader under the display.

The other highlight we mentioned is the battery, a 5,000mAh power cell that can be recharged at 44W. The USB-C port also handles headphone duties, but if you want to go wireless, the Bluetooth 5.1 modem can handle aptX HD/Adaptive and LDAC.

At this price, something has to give and we think that the chipset will be the biggest source of groans – it’s the Snapdragon 695. vivo wasn’t stingy with memory, you can have 8 or 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 or 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage (there’s no microSD slot), but the 695 is showing its age performance-wise. The Android 13 based OriginOS 3 can add up to 8GB of virtual memory.

That aside, you’re looking at a basic camera setup with a 50MP main sensor on the rear (f/1.8 lens with OIS), but is limited to 1080p video because of the chipset. It is joined by a 2MP depth sensor. On the front there is an 8MP selfie camera (f/2.0) that lives in a notch.

The vivo Y78+ is available in Blue, Yellow and Black, all three colors have a slight gradient effect. And before you ask, no, there is no non-plus Y78, at least not yet.

China price with direct to PHP conversion (no taxes and duties yet):

8GB128GBCNY 1,599 (around PHP 12.9K)
8GB256GBCNY 1,799 (around PHP 14.5K)
12GB256GBCNY 1,999 (around PHP 16.1K)

The new vivo Y78+ is going to be available on sale in China beginning April 26. No word yet if it will arrive in the Philippines though so stay tuned.
