Gone are the days when a brand like Vivo was criticised for overpriced phones. Vivo has launched some great phones this year in the sub Rs 20,000 price in India like the Vivo Z1 Pro, Vivo Z1x etc. Today, Vivo U10 launched in India as the latest offering in the budget segment from the company & it has disrupted the sub Rs 10,000 segment.
The price starts at Rs 8,990 & at that price, you are getting Snapdragon 665 SOC, a 5,000mAh battery, 18W Fast Charging, triple rear cameras & more.
VIVO U10 – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The design isn’t anything out of the world as it is a budget phone. You get a plastic build, but there is a nice gradient pattern on the back that makes the phone looks nice. The triple cameras are stacked vertically on the top left & there is also a fingerprint scanner on the back. On the front, there is a display with Waterdrop notch on top & we can also see that there is a big chin on the bottom.
The phone has a micro-USB port on the bottom alongside the headphone jack & the speaker grill.
Vivo U10 has a 6.35-inch HD+ IPS panel with a resolution of 1544 x 720 pixels. There is no mention of any Gorilla Glass protection on the official site, so we doubt if the phone has any. Under the hood, there is an octa-core Snapdragon 665 SOC which is clocked at 2.0GHz There is 3/4GB RAM & 32/64GB internal storage.
Coming to the cameras, the Vivo U10 has a triple camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 13MP f/2.2 camera, a secondary 8MP wide-angle secondary camera & a 5MP third depth sensor. On the front, there is an 8MP camera for selfies. There is a massive 5,000mAh battery & the phone also supports 18W Fast Charging.
Android 9 Pie runs out of the box with FunTouch OS 9.1 on top.
