It is not always easy distinguishing one mid-range vivo smartphone from another. Today, the vivo Y93 arrived in India with a Helio P22 chipset and a fingerprint scanner on the back. This is not the original vivo Y93, launched on November 1 - this is the body of vivo Y95 with the soul of the vivo Y93s.
The Indian version of vivo Y93 has a 6.22” LCD screen with HD+ resolution and 19:9 ratio. There is a waterdrop notch on the top holding an 8 MP shooter with an f/1.8 lens. The main camera setup has a 13 MP f/2.2 module and a secondary 2 MP depth sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. The phone has 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage.
The biggest reason to get the vivo Y93 is the battery - it comes with a 4,030 mAh power cell, dual SIM slot, and VoLTE. Sure there is the older micro USB port, but at least vivo is staying loyal to the 3.5 mm audio jack. OS is Android Oreo with Funtouch 4.5 on top. Although the device is already listed at vivo’s Indian e-store, price and availability is yet to be revealed.
Notification Light would no longer be usable especially with this era of bezel less designs. And it's either USB C alone vs microUSB and 3.5mm jack. At this price point, you can't have the best of both worlds.
2019 is a few days away and vivo and most probably xiaomi are still releasing phones with micro USB
