Will this budget device make it to the rest of the SEA region?
Chinese brand, Vivo, has been making waves with their current selfie-centric releases: the Vivo V5 Lite, Vivo V5, and their dual front camera equipped Vivo V5 Plus. Unfortunately, the strength of these smartphones have pushed their more budget-oriented devices — like the Y55 — out of the limelight; a bit of shame given that its a pretty capable smartphone at its price point. Vivo has launched another smartphone in their Y series, the Vivo Y25, in the neighboring country of Malaysia, which makes us wonder if it will see the light of the day on our shores. Here are its specs.
