Vivo has unveiled a new smartphone under its Y series at an event in India. The smartphone dubbed the Vivo Y55s is Vivo’s second smartphone to be introduced this year and it bears upgraded features from what was obtainable in the Y55L which was released last year most especially in areas like RAM and battery capacity and even the smartphone’s processor.

It is powered by Snapdragon’s Quad-Core 425 chipset and operates on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow platform with Funtoch 3.0 OS.
On the launch of the smartphone, CEO of Vivo India had this to say:

“After the success of Vivo V5 Plus, we hereby strengthen our Y series portfolio with the launch of this power packed device, the Y55s. We at Vivo are motivated by our endeavor to consistently set industry benchmarks by offering best in class features at affordable prices. Focused on our commitment in servicing customer satisfaction through quality products, we are hopeful that our latest innovation will be as successful as our previous offerings. We are confident that Vivo will have a great run in the year 2017.”
