In the previous month, Vivo had unveiled the Vivo V7+ smartphone with full screen design in India. A new device with Vivo Y79 has received TENAA certification in China. Its specifications suggest that Vivo V7+ may launch as Vivo Y79 in China.
The images of the Vivo Y79 shows that it resembles the Vivo V7+. The TENAA listing show that the Vivo Y79 measures 155.87 x 75.74 x 7.7 and its weight is 160 grams. Like the Vivo V7+, the Y79 features a 5.99-inch display that supports HD+ resolution of 720 x 1,440 pixels. It may boast a high screen-to-body ratio of over 84 percent.
The Vivo Y79 is fueled by 1.8 GHz processor and 4 GB of RAM. It appears that the smartphone would be driven by 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 450 SoC that powers the Vivo V7+. Both the handsets feature 64 GB of storage. The Vivo Y79 will be coming preinstalled with Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS that will be probably overlaid with FunTouch OS.
A 16-megapixel camera will be present on the rear side of the Vivo Y79 whereas its front may feature a 24-megapixel Moonlight selfie camera. The back panel of the phone features a fingerprint reader. The only major difference between the Vivo V7+ and Vivo Y79 is that the former includes a 3,225mAh battery and the latter has a 3,150mAh battery.
TENAA has also certified another Vivo phone with Vivo Y79A moniker. Except for support for CDMA 2000 network on Vivo Y79A, both the Y79phones seem to carry the same specs. Like V7+, the Y79 may come with similar features like Hi-Fi audio chip and face scanning. It is expected to arrive only in gold color.
