By Tapan Barman 3 Min Read

Vivo has unveiled the Y100 5G, its latest addition to the Y series of smartphones, in the Chinese market. Sporting a 6.78-inch FHD+ curved OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and an 8MP front camera housed in a notch, this phone runs on Android 13 with Origin OS 3.

One of the standout features of the Y100 5G is the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor, known as ‘INNER BEAUTY,’ developed by Elliptic Labs. This innovative sensor recognizes when the user places the phone near their ear during a call, automatically turning off the display and disabling touch functionality. The adoption of software sensors over traditional hardware sensors reduces device costs and eliminates sourcing risks.

The device is powered by the Snapdragon 695 chipset, with up to 12GB of RAM and 12GB of extended RAM. Its rear camera setup includes a 64MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and a 2MP depth sensor for versatile photography.

Vivo has paid special attention to durability by incorporating a high-strength aluminum alloy frame and cushioning materials, making the phone resistant to drops. It boasts an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance and is equipped with a robust 5000mAh battery while maintaining a sleek 7.49mm profile. The phone features distinctive design variations, including a quicksand texture back cover, a 3D frosted glass finish, and a nano-scale enamel texture coating, offering a unique aesthetic.
