vivo is gearing up to launch the vivo Y53s in the country – the 4G version. This is the company’s latest midrange smartphone in Kenya and packs quite the features.

One of its highlight is the 64MP main camera setup that vivo promises will offer impressive clarity to its consumers. We have two additional cameras including a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor.

The company says that vivo Y53s comes with tailored photography enhancements spread across five aspects, including skin tone, texture, and facial features.

You will be able to adjust the details manually, to create portraits and selfie videos that showcase your unique personality and selves.

vivo Y53s features a 16MP selfie camera supported by an intelligent algorithm that enhances vivo’s expertise in front camera photography.

There’s the added super night mode for taking shots in low light. vivo Y53 features PDAF technology will keep objects into constant focus by locking their eyes to make sure they are the center of attention.

Moving over its cameras, vivo Y53s will have a 6.58″ display with a resolution of 1080 by 2408 pixels with 20;9 aspect ratio. Sadly the refresh rate is capped at 60Hz.

Under its hood, vivo Y53s has Helio G80 processor paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. vivo Y53s also supports virtual RAM up to 3GB added from the onboard storage when the need arises.

vivo Y53s will also feature a 5000mAh battery and also support 33W FlashCharge fast charging technology which the company says has the ability to recharge the smartphone up to 70% in just 41 minutes, which is 37% faster than the 18W Fast Charge.

For biometrics, we have face unlock and a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
