Vivo Y77 relaunches in China with Dimensity 930 chip and 120Hz display

Chinese smartphone maker Vivo earlier today re-introduces the Y77. If the name rings a bell, it’s because this is the second time the Y77 has gone official. The phone’s first release was in Malaysia and uses a Dimensity 810 chip instead of Dimensity 930. While both phones have identical names, the first Y77 turned out to be a different phone in terms of its design and specification and the Chinese Y77 does not really include 5G to its name, as per its official listing.

The Vivo Y77

For starters, the Vivo Y77 uses a larger 6.64-inch display compared to the 6.58-inch in Malaysian model. It retains the Full HD+ resolution but is equipped with a smoother 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. It has a punch-hole cut-out in front that houses the 8MP selfie snapper and comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

However, the Chinese Y77 shares similarities with its Malaysian counterpart, starting with its rear cameras — 50MP main and 2MP macro camera units though it uses a watered-down 4,500mAh battery instead of a 5,000mAh one but to make up for its compromises, it charges at 80W.

Highlights of the Vivo Y77

Under the hood is the Dimensity 930 chip which uses TSMC’s 6nm process. The Vivo Y77 is available in either 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB, and 12GB + 256GB memory configurations. It runs on the latest Android 12 with Ocean OS on top.

Pricing & Availability

The Vivo Y77 comes in three colors and is priced at CNY 1,499 (~roughly PHP 12.4K) for the 6GB + 128GB model, CNY 1,599 (~roughly PHP 13.3K) for the 8GB + 128GB, CNY 1,799 (~roughly PHP 15K) for the 8GB + 256GB, and CNY 1,999 (~roughly PHP 16.6K) for the 12GB + 256GB model.
