vivo has launched a new phone today and its first launch is in Indonesia. We are talking about the Y36, which is coming to succeed the Y35 from last August. The model has been interestingly announced in two variants – one for 4G, one for 5G, though only the former has been listed on Indonesia’s official website so far.
The only differences between the two are the chipsets to be used and the color names to be offered: the 4G model has the Snapdragon 680 with Glitter Aqua and Meteor Black, while the 5G iteration comes with MediaTek’s Dimensity 6020 Crystal Green and Mystic Black. Otherwise, the specs are the same.
We are talking about a 6.64-inch “Ultra O” LCD screen with a resolution of 1080×2388, a 50 MP main camera with a 2 MP depth sensor on the side, a 16 MP selfie camera, 8 GB of RAM, 256. GB of expandable storage and a 5,000 mAh battery with 44W wireless charging. The phones run on Android 13 with Vivo’s Funtouch OS 13 on top. The dimensions are 164.06 x 76.17 x 8.07 mm, while the weight is 202 g.
The 4G Y36 has a suggested retail price of IDR 3,399,000, which works out to about $226 or €211 at current exchange rates. It is not yet clear how much the 5G version will cost or when it will arrive in other markets.
