Vivo Plans to Launch Y81i Soon in Nepal
The Chinese company Vivo is quite busy in the smartphone market with a couple of new launches. Vivo is planning to bring another mid-range smartphone in the Nepali market anytime soon. The company has also slashed the price of many smartphones in the market. Vivo recently dropped the price of newly launched Vivo V11 by 2200. It seems that Vivo is going strong in the market with competitive price. The new device that is set to launch in Nepal is Vivo Y81i. The date of launch has not been out yet but the teaser on the Facebook page of Vivo makes sure that the phone is arriving in Nepal very soon.
Vivo V81i is the sibling of Vivo Y81. It is the downgraded version of the already available Vivo Y81 in Nepal. The new device has the equivalent - 6.22” HD+ display with a notch up at the front, single rear camera on the back and 3,260 mAh battery as the regular Vivo Y81. The company tweaked the internals and this time included the MediaTek MT6761 chipset that is a toned-down version of the already unimpressive MT6762 Helio P22 platform. RAM is listed as 2 GB, while storage is only 16 GB.
Even on the camera front, Y81 and Y81i feature a similar hardware setup. Vivo Y81i comes with a 13MP camera on the back, followed by a f/2.2 lens. Upfront, there is a 5MP, f/2.2 camera dedicated for the selfies.

Despite all the similarities, these two handsets differentiate on the performance front. Vivo Y81i comes with a Quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 chipset with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage alongside. Since the Y81 features more powerful MediaTek P22 and 3GB RAM, there won’t be swiftness on the Y81i, which we usually see on the Vivo Y81.
On the sensor side, there is Accelerometer, Proximity, Compass sensors. Sadly, there is no fingerprint sensor. We can find, fingerprint sensor even on the entry-level and budget phones these days. So this absence is absolutely bummer on the phone. Nonetheless, there is a Face Unlock feature. So you won’t have to use the traditional methods (PIN, pattern, and password) to unlock the device.
