Vivo Y16 4G Specifications
The smartphone has a 6.51 inch IPS LCD with HD + resolution. There is a waterdrop notch on the top for the front camera. The device packs a dual rear camera setup, which includes a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. It also has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.
Under the hood, the Y16 packs the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC paired with 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. The device also supports 1GB of extended RAM. The Y16 runs Android 12 out of the box and has a layer of Funtouch OS 12 on top. It packs a 5000mAh battery with support for 10W charging via USB Type-C port.
According to tipster Ice Universe, Vivo will launch the Vivo X90 Pro+ in December. The device is said to come with a 1-inch main camera and a new telephoto sensor. In addition, the device will feature a new telephoto algorithm for telephoto lenses.
There is no information on which sensor the brand will use, but to recall, Xiaomi earlier this year launched its Xiaomi 12S Ultra with a larger 1-inch sensor. The sensor used in the phone was from Sony, it is Sony IMX989 sensor. This hints that Vivo may use the same sensor on its X90 Pro+, but let’s not jump to conclusions as the brand is yet to confirm the same.
As for the screen, the device will feature a Samsung E6 panel and we expect it to have a higher refresh rate. There is no information on the battery and fast charging of the phone, but it is likely to improve.
