Vivo has just announced the modest Vivo Y12A, which corresponds to its line of entry-level phones. The Vivo Y12A is similar in specifications to the Vivo Y11s one of the phones with which it landed in some countries but with an even more modest processor.
In its range, the Vivo Y12A does not try to reinvent the wheel, with a not very risky bet headed by an HD+ LCD screen, dual camera, Snapdragon 439, and a 5,000 mAh battery that does not have fast charging of any kind.

Entry-level phone with big battery
Vivo has just announced a new entry-level phone, the Vivo Y12A. It’s quite similar to the Vivo Y11s, which was already entry-level back in October last year, and it can’t be said to be a much better version. The vast majority of specs are the same.
Onboard the Vivo Y12A we have the Snapdragon 439 that was announced in 2018, accompanied by 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. For an entry-level handset, it is at least thankful that it incorporates biometrics in the form of a fingerprint reader on one of its sides.
The Vivo Y12A has a 6.51-inch diagonal LCD, with HD+ resolution and the usual 60 Hz refresh rate. Said display is topped by a teardrop-shaped notch at its top, where the 8MP front-facing camera is housed.
Behind, the Vivo Y12A mounts a dual camera in a module that makes you think it’s triple. It’s a somewhat more typical camera from a couple of years ago, with a 13MP main sensor and a 2MP sensor for portrait mode blur.
The little this Vivo Y12A can boast about is its battery, which has a capacity of 5,000mAh and should give plenty of power in conjunction with the limited power of the Snapdragon 439.
Vivo Y12A price and release date
The Vivo Y12A has been unveiled first in Thailand, with it unclear whether it will be sold in other regions under that or another name. There, it has gone on sale in green and blue and a single 3+32GB configuration, for 4,499 Thai baht, which is about $142.
