For starters, the vivo Y53s 4G is powered by the Helio G80 SoC, whereas the 5G model has a Snapdragon 480 chip at the helm. Moreover, the selfie shooter has got a megapixel bump – up from 8MP to 16MP – and the 64MP primary and 2MP macro cameras on the rear are now joined by a 2MP depth sensor.
The screen refresh rate has been reduced from 90Hz to 60Hz, but the battery charging speed has increased from 18W to 33W. On the software front, the smartphone runs Android 11-based Funtouch OS 11.1 instead of OriginOS since the latter is currently China-exclusive.
The rest of the features on the Y53s 4G remain the same as the 5G model’s, meaning you get a 6.58″ FullHD+ LCD, 8GB (+ 3GB virtual) RAM, 128GB storage, and 5,000 mAh battery.
The vivo Y53s 4G also comes with a USB-C port, a dedicated microSD card slot, and a side-mounted fingerprint reader advertised to unlock the smartphone in 0.24 seconds.
The Y53s 4G is offered in Blue Purple and Black Green colors and will be sold in Vietnam for VND6,990,000 ($305/€255).
