First launched globally in November 2021, the Vivo Y76 5G phone is now coming to Singapore on 8 January 2022.

Vivo positions this particular handset as an affordable way to experience local 5G connectivity. For one, it’s compatible with TPG’s 5G network, and two, it has a recommended retail price of just S$429.

Since the phone was a 2021 release, it packs components like MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset (a 2021 entry-level mobile processor also found in the Poco M4 Pro 5G) and Android 11 out of the box (cloaked under FunTouch OS 12).

Beyond these specs, the Vivo Y76 5G offers a host of features to make it more attractive than its peers. It has a slim 7.79mm body at 175g, making it lightweight. The phone also has 44W FlashCharge fast-charging, which Vivo claimed can refuel 70% of its 4,100mAh battery in just 32 minutes. To maximise its processing abilities, it has Extended RAM to further support its 8GB RAM with 4GB of virtual RAM (at the cost of internal storage). It also has the coveted NFC connectivity that's uncommon in low-priced handsets too.

There are also a 3.5mm audio jack port and expandable storage via MicroSD card, the mainstay features of affordable handsets. Naturally, being lower-priced leaves out IP-rated water resistance.

A triple camera setup is fitted on the back with a 50MP main shooter (f/1.8 aperture), a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth camera. In addition, the Y76 5G has AI Extreme Night, a digital photo-taking feature that caters to nighttime selfies.

Over at the front is a 6.58-inch IPS LCD display rated at FHD+ resolution (2,408 x 1,080 pixels). 

The Vivo Y76 5G is available at its official channels (Lazada, Qoo10, Shopee), consumer electronics and IT stores, authorised retailers, and its Causeway Point flagship outlet. In addition, for a “limited time” only, purchasing through select channels can net customers a free Vivo weighing scale (worth S$39.90), while stocks last.
