After some teasers and rumors, the Vivo Y15 has finally arrived in the Nepali market. The Vivo Y15, like recent launches, is a budget offering from Vivo that caters to users seeking for a good camera and a long-lasting battery life.
Without any further ado, first, let’s talk about the phone’s triple camera. Vivo’s recent offering, the Y17, also came with somewhat similar triple camera configuration: a 13MP normal sensor with f/2.2 aperture, an 8MP ultrawide sensor with similar aperture, and lastly a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. The selfie camera, up front, however, sees a change with a 16MP sensor.
Moving to the front, the Vivo Y15 has a 6.35-inch FullView display and a dewdrop notch at the top. The display is just 720p in resolution so you might not get a similar viewing experience as you would from phones with Full HD display. There’s also no protection of any kind of sorts.
Internals of the phone is also pretty decent. The phone has an average Helio P22 chipset, as opposed to Helio P35 on the Y17. The RAM is 4GB and the onboard storage is 64GB with an option for expansion via microSD card. Regardless of its hardware, the most important aspect of this phone is its battery; the phone packs a huge 5,000mAh battery that should last you a while. The bummer, though, is that you don’t get fast charging support here.

Vivo Y15 Price in Nepal and Availability
