Vivo has announced a new smartphone under its mid-range Y series, the Vivo Y69. The smartphone sports a 13 MP camera at the back and a 16 MP Moonlight Selfie Camera.

The Y69 offers several camera modes like Bokeh, Group Selfie, and Live Photo. Vivo’s first smartphone with Live Photo feature allows the rear camera to bring photos to life by creating a moving image.

We are pleased to introduce the Y69 in the Y series product portfolio and are confident that its premium design and superior camera features will offer great value to customers at an ideal price point. With the festive season around the corner, we are committed to fulfilling our brand promise and adding a surprise element for our valued customers with innovative devices.
